StuG III casemate screws

Postby Dario Risso » Sat Aug 13, 2011 5:39 pm

I've see some StuGs III has the casemate roof fixed with hexagonal bolts and other with ranurated screws. I wonder which it depends? From the factory (Alkett, MIAG)? Or the existence of screws?

Thanks

My guess is the later had the bolts and the early had the screws?

If I don't misunderstand, there was no Ausf. F - F/8s with hexagon head screws? :shock:

I got Dragon's 9013 kit and it has the casemate roof with hexagon head screws: No big deal, but I want to be sure before fix that

Thanks
