Down by the riverside - StuG conversion rebuild completed

Hi all,
Here's my rebuilt StuG conversion finally with a base and some figures. I had this old Modelltrans early Ausf G hull together with Revell lower hull and running gear standing on the shelf and thought I'll give it new life. Since my goal, a Stug Abt 202 vehicle, was one of those built on Pz III Ausf M hulls I had to covert my conversion set. I rebuilt the overhang with a scratchbuilt deep wading muffler and reworked the forward hatches to have the flat sealable ones. Besides that I added a new muzzle brake, a makeshift stowage rack at the back and those wooden side skirts made of sheet styrene. The tracks are PE from Part, something from pre-OKB times. I had a bit of a problem sculpting my figures, bare body is susceptible to proportion faults (at least for me). It doesn't take much to have a forearm or thigh too thick or the waist too small, doing figs in uniforms seems a bit easier. This was also my first time sculpting loose clothing, it could probably look better but for now this is all my skills allow.
Anyway here are the photos, all feedback welcome as always.
