tankette Tristar Marder III Ausf H

Finally the long awaited Tristar Marder III ausf H

Thanks to Pat for the kit.

Here's the picture of the front of the box. Box art is by Yuji Asano


This is the rear of the box


The box is 8cm deep since it's filled right up to the top with plastic!

Photos of the sprues will follow in a day or two.

Looks like a nice kit. I like the boxart. Is this the kit in conjunction with AFV Club? If so can you see witch parts are AFV?

Yes, there are two sprues from AFV and they are labeled with the AFV club mark. One sprue is the gun cradle and the other is 75mm ammo plus ammo boxes. The gun barrel is from Tristar.

Tristar Marder III H

Hi Guys,

Yes, it's a stunning kit without a doubt.
Part one of a detailed comparison with the Dragon and Italeri Marder III H kits dealing with the exterior will be posted on PMMS tomorrow or the day after with part two on the interior/gun to follow not long after that time permitting.

Cheers
Terry A
