Well, hello from Estonia! I am new do, be easy on me I have never made a model before, and I just recently got an Italeri 1:35 Stug IV. Does anybody have any really newbie tips, such as which glue to use (PVA?) what tools I will need etc.

Welcome to armorama and to modeling! For your glue I'd recommend tamiya extra thin or Revell contacta. I'd also recommend you get something to remove parts from the sprues (nail clippers will do fine) and a regular nail file to remove the last bits of sprue still attached to the part. If the tracks are the 'rubber band' type, I'd suggest you get an office stapler to join the ends. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask- we'd all love to help!

Welcome to Armorama Jaak. Well, we all start somewhere, there may be disappointments along the way but just keep at it and you'll get the hang of it. To your tools list, I'd add a hobby knife (i.e. Exacto No 11 or similar), also tweezers. Yes I believe the Italeri kit comes with one-piece 'rubber band' tracks so the stapler will be handy as glue won't do. Post pics, ask questions, am quite sure you'll get people will chime in to help you. Cheers, Tat
