Tamiya Marder I @ 1/35

November 27, 2020 · in Armor · · 6 Comments

I've been modulating between aircraft and armor. This kit looked interesting. WW II was changing for Germany and as the prospect for victory was fading, the Wehrmacht moved from an offensive to defensive posture in armor. Basically, their industry could build three Jagpanzer tank killers for every two tanks produced. This kit was up to Tamiya's usual standard although I did have some problem with the track and link assembly. Even at 1/35 scale, the tracks are kinda tiny. But I had fun with the assembly and the finishing. I also wanted to add one more Marder to the site catalogue. Thanks for looking.

  1. Your Marder looks amazing, David!
    Painting and weathering rock!
    Armor modeling looks marvellous, myself slowly motivated towards expanding there.
    Well done!

  2. Smashing. Great job overall, nice operational look. Have a thing for these German lash-ups meself. Got it 3 weeks ago, now have incentive.
