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.

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.

Part#: TAM35356

This model assembly kit recreates the British Army’s Archer. As WWII progressed, British troops found that their 2-pounder and 6 pounder guns were being rendered obsolete by German armor, and planners decided to develop a vehicle using the powerful 17 pounder (76.2mm) gun. The vehicle chosen to mount the gun on was the Valentine; the turret was removed and replaced with a fighting compartment – this would be known as the Archer. Interestingly, as there was little time to re-organize the cramped layout, the 17-pounder had to be mounted pointing rearwards to fit it in. As a result, the Archer moved and fired in opposite directions. It offered strong performance, however, and served with British and Commonwealth units from October 1944 till the end of WWII, the British using it until the early 1950s.

• 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length:191mm
• Details include armor plates and realistic weld lines.
• The powerful 17 pounder gun is depicted with excellent detail, including breech details.
• The open top fighting compartment showcases numerous other interior points such as shell racks and radio equipment.
