1/35 Marder Plastic Model Kit

The Marder I was a German World War II tank destroyer, armed with a 75 mm PaK-40 anti-tank gun on a Lorraine chassis. The Marder I was developed in May 1942 by Major Alfred Becker. As the gun was relatively large, the original crew compartment superstructure was removed to create the space needed to work the gun. The gun was then mounted atop the chassis. Alkett, working in conjunction with Becker, produced the angled armour shielding for the crew compartment. The shielding was relatively light, and was open from above. The shielding provided the crew with protection from blast and small arms fire, but was not intended to stop armour piercing rounds. The vehicle's primary function was to provide mobility to the anti-tank gun. It was not intended as a replacement for a tank.

Between July and August 1942, 170 Marder I's were built on the Lorraine chassis. The Marder Is initially served in infantry divisions on the Eastern Front and met with good success. They later made up a significant component of the armoured fighting vehicles of the reformed 21st Panzer Division in Normandy.
