Stug IIIG Steel Return Rollers

I am thinking of converting an early Stug IIIG to a late and would need steel return rollers. Are these extras in any kits or does someone make an aftermarket set? Thanks for any replys. -Bill.

Couple of options

February 9 2007, 6:33 PM 

Hello Bill,
There are a couple of options as steel return rollers go. Tank Work Shop makes a set along with the shot deflector for the commander's cupola for your early to late conversion. There is also a set of white metal return rollers made by Model Kasten. The only place I have seen them was in Osprey's Modelling the Stug III. Then the final option is using the ones from a DML Stug III Ausf G, however the "axle" between the two halves is to wide and needs to be narrowed for a correct width return roller.

TWS 2060 STUG III Detail Set w/Late Mantlet

As for the Model Kasten ones I am not sure where to find them. I looked on several online stores in the U.S. with no luck. I hope this helped.

two assembly plants

Hi you all,

On the pic above the problem is that the gun mantlet (Saukopf) is an Alket one and the retur rolers from Miag plant.

Ok, I know that this mix is possible (I´ve seen a picture), but not very common.

These rollers go better with the Miag-type block mantlet.

CMK has a set that comes with two types of all steel return rollers. Inclded is a Saukopf mantlet which is not a very good one.

Dragon kits ?

You could take them off of the Dragon kit of the Stug G late with the 105mm gun.
