It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Does any one know what Tamiya paint best represents the gray primer the 75mm guns where paint in because in the instructions says to do the muzzle break to paint this in gunmetal.

What part of the gun? Inside the superstructure is was an off white colour, outside would be the same colour as the camo on the tank.

Can you show us a pic of the instructions?

I would paint the muzzle brake of the gun the same base colour as the rest of the StuG.

I'd add some red brown and olive green camo to it as well, rather than all over dark yellow.

Yep, what Andrew said. He knows!!! The blackened or gun metal idea is just fantasy.

Yeah I know paint the gun painted in gunmetal isn't very realistic and I could do it in the gray primer that the gun where paint instead.

Thanks Henry

You could paint the barrel (but not the muzzle brake) in a very dark grey to represent a replacement barrel for some visual interest

Those radio antenna are massively overscale. Maybe trim them off, and replace with some stretched sprue?

Field applied 3 tone will work fine. Either squiggly lines or patches of colour

You could wrap it around the spare wheels. You can also put spare track pins through those wheels too.
