Sorry, but i am unable to find word "included" in this topic.
STL files are not released yet.
Its described in the bottom part of the first post:

Assembly guide is almost finished, basic STL files are ready.Just need to print this test vehicle.
Model will be ready like STL files for print or like a full kit (soon).
3D printer with at least 350x350x350mm buildplate is needed for print.


So - yes, files are ready, assembly guide is ready too, but i am not going to release that files before test.
It need to be fully tested - printing and assembly.
Have found 3 imperfections in the assembly and its only started.

Of course, i can contact you when ready.

Nice work, but you really need to include something in the photos to give an idea of the size.
Here’s one I prepared earlier

I swear, I always attach something to it.From now, forever.

Thank you for the picture, Wayne.
You can see a lot of changes inside of the hull in the new version.
Guards for the belts are removed.Actually, whole drivetrain is much simplifier now, there is a lot of space inside.
Dont need that belts anymore.

Thank you.

Still need to make pictures of some new parts.
Have new periscopes with possibility of installing transparent sheet.
It will look more realistic with this.
Going to cut a lot of them with laser.Even rounded one for the gunners eye and one special for tail light.

Another (i think) great thing - complete machinegun assembly with shield is attached to the servo using magnets.
It can be easily removed for transport.

Saukopf is now fixed to the gun with two worm screws etc...
As i have said - its not just a simple rescale.Its deep rework and i am really enjoying possibilities of this scale.

Have one question, Wayne:
How much paint do you have spent for this one?

If I remember correctly, I think I used one can of white & 2 cans of red oxide. I use the white as a base coat so that when I’m wet sanding the red oxide I can see when I’m sanding too much off.
Cheers

Those 3 cans were for primer only, my Hetzer has had to go into storage while I have my cellar converted into a new workshop. It’s taking a lot longer than I was expecting.
I was told 9 days, it’s now been 4 months....
