Announcement: DW16001 StuG III Aus.G early

We are happy to present our next product to you today!

For the first time we dedicate ourselves to the large 1:16 scale, with our StuG. The kit is a brand new plastic model in this scale.

To celebrate this, the entire first production run comes with an optional free metal barrel.

We are currently planning to start deliveries in mid-December 2021.

You can find more information, much more pictures and the first videos here: StuG III Aus.G early (Sturmgeschütz III / Sd.Kfz. 142)

    Excellent gift to myself this Christmas.

    Maybe a PAK 40 gun and ammunition in 1/16 scale in the future?

    At last some one produces stug III in 1:16 scale! I have long expected a kit like this, thank you!

    This is very good news, I ordered one already.
    I hope this is the start of a great line of german tank variants in 1/16 scale.
    Pay attention what Trumpeter in 1/16 scale is producing and don’t do that then, or just be the first one to release a new 1/16 tank variant.
    Fab news.

    I am very pleased to se a StuG III in 1/16. Hope to see a later version as well. It would be very nice if the side skirts that was a so prominent feature of the StuG III would be avilable as an aftermarket item.
    While I am at it. A Jagdpanzer 38 "t" "Hetzer" would make a very nice kit in 1/16.
    Other than that I preordered mine yesterday.

    Gibt es vielleicht späterhin ein Ergänzungsset für das Interior? Auf jeden Fall ganz große Klasse!

    Ich würde gerne sehen, ob ein zusätzlicher electr. antriebssatz separat erworben werden kann. Erweiterbar mit Drehturm und/oder Rauch und Sound. Ich habe einen Tiger 1/16 von HobbyBoss gebaut, der vorbereitet, aber nicht verfügbar ist.

    Fantastic heading in the right direction.

    please for the future, consider doing the ww1 British and German line of tanks in 1/16.

    I have been looking forward to a detailed STUG in 1/16 and now its here. Well soon to be. A merry Christmas I think it will be. Ho Ho Stug :-)
    Maybe Das Werk could consider several late war HEER figures to go with this work of art. Well I can dream.

    Thank you Das Werk.

    It is important that the pieces are not small to be able to assemble it well and less at this scale, there are other brands that working in 1/16 scale make very small pieces and they do not like it. this kid is very good

    Excellent news, but will you consider a range of German armoured cars/ half-tracks they were very common in all theatres of war, many people I know only model in 1/16 .well done on the stug though

    II could not resist therefore Stug will come to me soon :)

    If we go through what Panzer are available in 1:16, we immediately notice that there is a lack of Panzer II, III and a good Tiger I.

    Maybe with this Stug it is worth to think about Panzer III ?

    I was wondering if in this scale it would be a good idea to sell the base model without interior and interior as a separate kit. Surely more people would buy the base model because it would be at a more affordable price.

    In the future please think about Sturmtiger and Ferdinand/Elefant - these beasts will always attract attention.

    Ich habe es heute erhalten.... der 38 T Hetzer in 1/16 war gut aber der StuG III von DAs Werk ist sehr gut... freue mich auf den Panzer III. “mit winterketten” :-)

    Bought mine as my Christmas present from Andy's. Its fabulous. Started work last night but I will not close it up until the full interior kit is released. I can simply build upper and lower for now.

    Hi there! Some basic dimensions of the new 1/16 Das Werk Stug 3 would be helpful. I would like to put it in a display case when I do buy one. Length, width and height in milimetres/centimetres would be very helpful, please. I am one of those who will buy this model in due course. Regards Sandor.
