TAKOM 8004 1/35 StuG.III Ausf.G early production Plastic Model Kit

Sturmgeschütz III Ausf.

G Based on the obsolete Panzer III, the Sd.Kfz 142/1 StuG III Ausf. G became the ultimate version of the Sturmgeschütz III family of German AFV’s, with some 7,720 being produced from December 1942 until March 1945. The main improvement over previous variants was a new casemate superstructure made up of slanted 30mm side armor & 50mm frontal armor plates. This casemate featured a new commander’s cupola fitted with 7 periscopes and an SE14Z scissors periscope. Numerous changes were made throughout production of the series. The first came early with the addition of a hinged armored gun shield in front of the loader’s hatch. In February 1943 a set of three smoke dischargers were fitted to each side at the front of the casemate, only to be removed again in May. In April 1943 armored skirts were installed to protect its flanks against anti-tank rifles and hollow charges. In May 1943 the frontal armor was improved with a single 80mm plate in place of the previous combined 50mm & 30mm plates bolted together. Later in 1943 the cupola was given an armored deflector to increase protection, and the 75mm StuK 40 L/48 gun mantle was replaced with a ‘Saukopf’ or ‘Topfblende’ casting. In March 1944 a remote controlled MG34 was fitted, and in May a Nahverteidigungswaffe close range defense weapon was installed in the roof. These vehicles became ubiquitous during WWII, not only fighting effectively for the Germans from Normandy to Kursk, but also with the armies of Finland, Italy, Bulgaria and Romania. Some examples fought on well after the war, when Syrian vehicles were destroyed by superior Israeli forces during the Six Day War in 1967.

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
