The Marder III was a self-propelled anti-tank weapon that was basically an answer to new heavy Soviet tanks. This version had the motor in the middle and gun compartment in the back with a 75mm PaK 40 anti-tank gun. The rear was closed but it still had an open top to allow the crew to fire an MG 38 or 42 out of the compartment as there was no hull-mounted machine gun. This high-quality model shows all the rivets and bolts holding the tank together. It even includes two sprues of etched brass detailing. The tracks are supplied link by link and must be assembled piece by piece.
