Will PP Stug 3 Crew and Stowage fit the PSC 15mm Stug G?
« on: September 05, 2020, 04:44:42 PM »
Hi guys,
As the title says really, will the Peter Pig Stug crew and stowage pieces fit the Plastic Soldier Company 15mm Stugs?

I really like the Peter Pig crew and stowage for stugs and I already have a box of the PSC 15mm stugs and would really like to use the PP parts to pimp these models.

If they aren't compatible I'll have to sell the PSC box and buy some PP stugs.

Thank you and best wishes,
Martin Buck

They will go fine martin.
I assume that PSC are using 1/100th?
Because the crew have hatches moulded to them they need a flat surface.
This means you will need to carve off the raised hinges on the STUG hatches.
The hatches do not need to be cut out as the crew are surface mounted.

Yes, PP, PSC, FoW and Skytrek all generally fit together, and like I found with the Churchillís last year I was swapping Hulls and sides with each other companies. With the Engineering tanks when I was mounting something on the hull, I needed to use either Metal Hull and or Metal tracks to help balance the tank. I know I ve swopped over Pz 111 and Panzer 1V bits with each of the other companies, as well as Sherman and Cromwells tanks.
I generally use what ever companyís vehicles best suited for the purpose of the model, as I am Model maker first these days over Wargamer second.

PSC StuG slightly smaller according to this comparison but close enough I'd say

Thank you Miles and Nigel, I'll order some in a fortnight and see how I get on. The PSC Stugs come with two upper hulls, one for a G and one for the F8 so no great loss if I damage one experimenting.

Best wishes,
