This is a 1/72nd scale vehicle from the Hobby Master series. In June 1941 when Germany invaded the Soviet Union it wasn’t long before they realized the T-34 and KV-1 were formidable weapons against their panzers. The Wehrmacht needed many anti-tank weapons and one solution was the creation of the Sd.Kfz. 139 Marder III anti-tank gun using captured Soviet 7.62 cm guns mounted on older Czech-built 38(t) tank chassis. The Marder III didn’t offer much protection for the 4-man crew but it was a mobile anti-tank weapon that was much needed in 1942 and 1943. There were 363 Marder IIIs produced.
