JTFM is a Canadian company specializing in 1/56 scale and

28mm vehicles that are ideal for Bolt Action wargaming. The

company trades under the name Die Waffenkammer and can

be found at the following link: JTFM

This particular vehicle is a Stug iii with the late 75mm gun. The kit

comes withy various options allowing 3 types of guns, Schurzen, different

Mg manlets and loads of stowage. You also get two crew figures.

The kit is resin and compared to the Bolt Action Tiger which I

assembled in a previous post its a much better fitting and offers

a lot more detail.

Overall it was a really easy kit to assemble and the most detailed

at this scale I have seen to date.

One minus point and its worth mentioning. I got hold of this kit

via a swap with a friend who basically wanted shot of it after

the trouble he experienced buying the model in the first place.

Apparently customer relations are not what they should be at JTFM

and it would of been quicker going to Canada and getting the item

himself via canoe than waiting for it to come by post. Perhaps

something to work on JTFM ?

Anyway leaving that aside an excellent model.

Enjoy the pictures of the Stug stalking the Normandy hedgerows:
