Have a load of pics on my computer from the last time I was at Kevin's place. They might be useful to someone, so will post a few now and again. Would really appreciate you guys filling in the description blanks or correcting errors.

88mm for the 36/37 version I suspect

The STUG could also be a StuH 42, but seeing as the gun missing, its hard to tell..... BTW, the Finn's used them, so its possible that's where it came from

Think you might have hit the nail on the head there Daz. The Duxford one looks similar and has the concrete too. That came from Finland I believe.
