"Meat on the Table"

Old Dragon Stug III C/D L48 in 1/35. This model of Stug or better say hybrid version, was/were used in the end of the war. I saw only one photograph of this vehicle. In documentation, this vehicles were in training camps, used for training panzer crews. When war came to the German border, small main guns were replaced with bigger 75mm L48 barrels. I`m not sure that this type of camo was really used, but I guess that  repaired vehicles (from beginning of war) were in original camo. I used AK grey primer and Tamiya colors for color modulation, DOA pigments and Value Gear .  Story for this dio. will be: last month/days of WWII, Stug III get`s cover behind some ruins. Tank crew is waiting new wave of Red Army tanks,and suddenly goat appears. I read book about Battle of Berlin  called "Battle" author C. Ryan, that during Battle of Berlin, Berlin ZOO was heavy damaged, so animals flee into city streets and ruins. I got idea that will be interesting to place animal on dio, hungry and exhausted soldiers are happy cause they will have possible meat for lunch.
