Russian SU-76i Tank Destroyer
The Russians captured around 200 Panzer IIIs of various marks during the battle for Stalingrad and decided to re-arm them with a standard Soviet weapon. A simple armoured box was welded on top of the Panzer III hull and an F-34 76.2mm gun fitted. This kit is based on the...

le FH 18/2 auf. GwII Wespe
The large distances and harsh conditions of war on the Eastern front dictated the need for self-propelled artillery systems. A number were trialled, but the "interim solution" decided upon was to mount the Army's standard light field howitzer on modified Panzer II chassis.
This unique conversion was built by the field workshops of Schw. PanzerjÃ¤ger Abteilung 653 in Galicia / Poland in late Spring 1944 and was used to provide AA protection for the headquarters.
The turret was constructed from armour plates salvaged from wrecked halftracks and housed a...
Long before the start of World War II, the Wehrmacht had identified the need for a weapon capable of demolishing houses with two or three rounds, to be available in street-fighting situations. The 15cm sIG could do the job, but earlier attempts to mount it on an armoured chassis had not...
