Amazing balance of build, accessory/armor composition, painting & weathering - plus battle damage. The level of detail and clarity of your pictures kept me captivated far longer than most models posted on this site. Good Work.

Fine StuG in a winter camouflage.

Wow, very nice build Ozgur! Looks a touch 'simple' at first glance, then after a good gaze a lot of detail comes into view-pretty much the exact way it happens with the real deal. The first thing you see from a scale 50' away shouldn't be a ton of paint chips, you see them once you walk up to it. Bravo, great weathering job!

Wow! That is really a great winter wash you have on that stug. I can almost feel the cold in Russia! Great finish. It would look great in a winter dio. Real cool!

Hi Ozgur. The white-washed camo is excellent, in the way its faded and scrtached very realistically. The stowage on the back contrasts nicely with this also. I also love the signs of wear and tear around the vehicle, especially on the side armor. Have you purposly kept this model free from mud or dirt? I would expect any vehicle, with such wear and tear, to throw up some mud and also expect the running gear and lower hull to show this. The wheels still bare a pretty clean whitewash, although its worn nicely like the rest of the vehicle. I know some modeller dont like to "model the country side" ... but Im curious!

Thanks friends.. Frank, actually its easy to apply. I used two different color typ for Base and White. For base I used enamel colors. But for white I choosed acyrl. These two colors have different solvent. And I used this attribute for washing. Before varnish, you can remove white color with alcohol or water without any damage at base color And here a few detail fotos..

Grammatically it's not correct, but it was more of a slang expression meaning something to the effect of "Young Men Stand Strong" , or hang in there or something along those lines. From what I understand that phrase was used in German propaganda, especially on the Eastern Front and during the final defense of Berlin. Here is a photo of a late StugIIIG on display at the Kubinka tank museum outside of moscow with that slogan painted on the back:
