Ammunition Set for
12.8cm Sf. L/61 (Pz.Sf.V) "Sturer Emil"

ABER 1:35 Set #35 P-06
Review by Terry Ashley

Trumpeter Following on from the "Sturer Emil" Ammo holders and boxes set #35 182 ABER have now released this set of turned brass and aluminium ammunition for the Trumpeter 12.8cm Selbstfahrlafette L/61 "Sturer Emil" (kit #00350).

The set consists of 6 turned brass shells which are hollowed out slightly and have separate etched brass end caps to add details as well as etched covers when stored in the ammo lockers as they are carried separate from the shells.

Additionally there are 12 turned aluminium rounds of two types, 6 Standard Armour-piercing (AP) Pzgr. rounds and 6 Standard high-explosive (HE) Spgr rounds with a small decal sheet with stencilling for the rounds and shell cases plus the small etched fret.

The quality of the machining is excellent with just a small burr to be filed off the base of the shell cases to fit the etched base cap with the fit of the shells to the cases being very snug and not requiring any filing or other alterations.

Included is a small instruction sheet showing the alternate colours for the shell cases and rounds plus the location of the decal stencilling as well as diagrams showing how the rounds fit into the etched racks in set #35 182.

An excellent set for your "Sturer Emil" and to add that final touch if using the etched ammo racks and lockers provided in set #35 182 or just to the kit as it comes.

All that is needed is to paint the items and add the decals for a very simple update set.

Highly recommended.
