The Norfolk Tank Museum’s Armourfest show gets better each year. A new attraction was the 2pm arena show of two Stug III Ausf.G German assault guns. It was the first outing for one of the Stugs, the latest and probably the best one built by master builder Harold Marillier of HCM Associated Enterprises. The attention to detail is superb.

The new Stug III was expertly painted by David Hoyle in the Normandy ‘Ambush’ camoufl age pattern.
