Now, this comprehensive set, done in collaboration between Tamiya and Master Box Ltd., lets you create your own diorama with 7 figures in realistic poses, a vehicle and accessories all thrown in one box!

During WWII, the German Army produced and operated the Marder III series, which was equipped with the Czech built obsolete 38(t) tank chassis, to combat the Soviet T-34 tanks. First version of Marder was armed with improved spoiled Soviet 7.62cm Pak36 anti-tank cannon which was replaced with German 7.5cm Pak40 gun on H version, and the last version, the Marder III M was put into production in May 1943. Unlike former types the M's cabin was transferred to the rear by mounting the engine in the middle, and a 7.5cm Pak40/3 was also employed. 942 M's were produced until the thoroughbred tank destroyer Hetzer assumed much of the Marder's role.

British Churchill Mk.Vii

Despite the serious teething problems in its mechanics, the British Infantry Tank MK.IV or the "Churchill" went on to earn a high reputation among the WW2 British armored fighting vehicles. Following the tradition of the rhombic-shaped predecessors during WW1, its design priority was placed on heavy armor, a wide trench crossing capacity and the ability to travel across the shell-torn battlefields. Speed was not considered to be essential, since its main role would be to escort and support the infantry. Christened the "Churchill" after the Prime Minister of England, it began to arrive at the Tank Regiments in June 1941. The Churchill tank stable is classified into several types according to the main armament used, or the hull and turret construction. The MK.VII was radically different from the earlier models, with the hull and turret completely new in structure. The entire hull was welded, rather than being riveted. The maximum armor thickness was increased from 102mm to 152mm. Consequently, the weight augmented to 40 tons, resulting in a reduction in top speed from 18 to 13 mph. The turret was redesigned for higher strength and improved productivity. The four walls were a single casting of varying thickness, onto which the roof plate was welded. The powerful 75mm gun was adopted as the main armament. The active service of the Churchill tanks, especially from D-Day onwards, is worthy of the name of the principal British tank.

Israeli Tank M1 Super Sherman

Over 50,000 Shermans of all types were produced during WWII. The Shermans which the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) initially procured from various sources were a mix of different variants featuring different hulls, turrets, suspensions, and armaments. However, Israel was eventually able to negotiate the purchase of about 250 M4A1 and M4A3 Shermans from France, and these were armed with the M1A1/A2 76.2mm main gun which could better counter the Arab armies" Russian made T-34-85s. Shermans were also produced with two different types of suspension: VVSS (Vertical Volute Spring Suspension) and HVSS (Horizontal Volute Spring Suspension). The latter offered better performance and the IDF eventually modified their tanks to the HVSS standard. Thus the IDF designated its 76.2mm gun-armed HVSS-equipped Shermans as M1 Super Shermans and many of these saw their first action during the Sinai Campaign in 1956.

Part#: TAM35335

This is a highly detailed model of the WWII German tank destroyer Nashorn. The full size vehicle featured an 8.8cm gun also known as a PAK 43 and it was fitted to the upper surface of a light turret less chassis. Even though the vehicle was lightly armored, the PAK43 weapon was capable of penetrating 190mm of armor at 1,000 meters. The Nashorn saw action with German heavy antitank battalions fighting Soviet and Allied forces during much of the conflict. Due to its relatively low cost and superior mobility compared to heavier tanks it remained in production until the end of the WWII war. 

Decals Included
Photo-Etch Parts Not included
Scale 1/35

The model accurately recreates the powerful form of the Nashorn, thanks to detailed research performed using an actual example of the vehicle in a museum in Russia.

Features faithful reproductions of the 71-caliber 8.8cm gun and complex fighting compartment.
Metal parts are used to ensure that the gun has authentic movement and weight.
Comes with 3 marking options, including winter and Eastern front versions.
4 included figures depict driver and 3 crew members in a variety of realistic poses.

Part#: TAM35265

Tamiya presents a plastic assembly kit for the M113, a veteran Personnel Carrier that played an important role in the 2003 Iraq War. With the fear that important supplies would not reach the advancing U.S. personnel, the U.S. army called on the reliable and mobile M113. This detailed replica of the actual carrier also features extra attachments such as personnel equipment and ammunition cases.
Of the various M113 type personnel carriers developed, the M113A2 began production in June 1979. Based on combat experience in Vietnam, this version was made with improved transmission, operating equipment and cooling system as well as reinforced suspension. Detachable fuel tanks were moved to the rear and external sides of the vehicle, smoke dischargers were mounted on the front, and the trim vane was enlarged. M113A2 units were deployed to the Gulf War in 1991, and in the 2003 Iraq War. The most recent M113A2 active in Iraq was also equipped with Combat Identification Panels (CIP), the latest friend and foe recognition device to prevent friendly attack.
Overall length 153mm
Large trim vane, smoke shell launcher, and external fuel tanks have been accurately replicated.
CIP attached on both sides.
Gun shield can be attached to M2 machine gun.
Plenty of extra attachments including personnel equipment and ammo cases.
Commander and driver figures included Decals for 3 different vehicles deployed to Iraq and one vehicle deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Apart from decals for the vehicles deployed in the Iraq War, 1 set of decals for the NATO vehicle deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina is also included in the kit. To accurately replicate the vehicle we recommend using Tamiya"s NATO Green, NATO Brown and NATO Black colors.
