M based on the chassis of the Czech-designed Panzer 38 t. M stands for Mittelmotor, referring to the mid-engine layout. M was the most widely produced Marder variant, with vehicles built from April to May Marders fought in all theaters, and some Ausf.
M were still in service in February M Initial Production vehicle. No detail has been spared on this kit, and it is bulging and rippling with fine detail. The open-topped fighting compartment is crammed with components such as ammo racks and rounds that will allow modelers to really go to town. In order to minimize the time of testing and implementation into production, the Marder III was created with the chassis of the PzKpfw 38 t tank, which was then decommissioned, and in the original version the main armament was the captured Soviet F gun.
Three variants of this vehicle were produced in series production. The first was designated Sd. H, which was equipped with the German 75mm PaK 40 cannon and a hp engine. Finally, the last mass-produced version was the Sd. M, which still had the PaK 40 gun, but already had a closed crew compartment and a hp engine. Marder III vehicles of all versions were used primarily on the Eastern Front in the period , where especially in the period proved to be a very effective weapon.
A small batch of about vehicles went to North Africa at the turn of If an item is marked as available, does that mean that it is in stock? Usually yes, but whether we send the order the same day we receive it depends on many other factors. For this reason, more important is the estimated shipping date. This is shown in the table above, which also indicates inventory availability, reservations for other orders, delivery schedules, courrier pick-up times, and more.

The separate etched louvers can then be added but if you want to show these at an angle you will have to bend the end connectors to get the correct sit preferably before attaching to the etched panel. The intakes fit neatly into the hull cut-outs with the detail on the plastic intakes being perfectly adequate but the top engine deck inspection hatch is a tight fit and I shaved a very small amount off the sides and front to get a perfect fit but this is only very minor.
On the real hull panel there is a choice of the original two piece exhaust pipes or the newer one piece pipes parts M6 and it is best to use these for the kit. Note there is a raised seam along the top of the exhaust pipes to represent the welded seam and you should take care to leave this in place. As the sprue attachment is right on this raised seam some careful knife work is needed during cleanup to ensure the seam remains intact.
I also drilled out the pipes for a better appearance as while they are indented at the end this is not very deep and drilling out does improve the look and another small issue is these exhausts while having the better detail extend too far out from the armoured covers and trimming these a little will give a more accurate appearance. Other details added to the hull are the fender storage boxes with separate etched latches plus etched grouser tie downs and straps for the separate snow grousers supplied.
You should cut away all the other moulded on details from the hull sides as these were quite bare on these Factory vehicles with the instruction illustrations showing the details gone but they don't actually mention to remove the details. The steel wire provided is used for the tow cables that fit into plastic cable eyes and have etched securing brackets on the fenders.
The separate periscope covers unfortunately can only be fitted in the open position with the periscopes in place so if you want to show the covers closed you should leave out the clear periscopes altogether. The separate hull machine gun coaming has excellent weld bead detail and fits perfectly to the hull and drilling out the MG barrel will provide a better look. The head light has a separate clear lens and alternate plastic or etched mounting post but if the etched post is used you will have to fill in the hull locating hole for the plastic post afterwards.
There are additional details provided in the form of the finely moulded grab handles that were added along the hull sides and on the engine deck as well as the turret splash guards fitted to the later early Factory produced vehicles but here is no actual locating points for the grab handles and you will have to be careful when adding these. The large rear hull mounted box fuel tanks are provided in three parts each and these are added to the rear hull plate without any problems to add a different look to these vehicles.
There is a new style cast turret provided that differs slightly from that in the T No. The main difference being the rear escape hatch is eliminated with a fully cast turret but there are two large mould seams where the hatch has been filled in on the moulds and you will have to clean these up but this may result in the surface texturing being compromised and may have to retextured after cleanup.
The new cast turret is moulded in one piece with virtually no cleanup required but unfortunately the turret is attached to the sprue by a single attachment point at the back and this resulted in some minor damage on the rear lower lip that needed filling but this may vary between kits. The gun shield and housing is made up of four parts which fit together well and have excellent weld and bolt head details and you should note there is a weld bead along the top join seam and adding this will cover up the join would be a better option.
Again there is a choice of two F32 The roof is also new for this kit with the original roof still included so make sure you use the correct one part U14 with a choice of two turret hatches, both moulded commendably thin with excellent contours without any hint of pin marks and includes additional etched parts for the interior details but to use these you have to trim off the moulded on plastic detail and care will be needed with this.
There is a small error in the location of the inner bracket etched part MA10 and it should be fitted under the hatch rim and butted to the lip as the instructions indicate. If fitting the desired hatch in the open position you will have to trim the small bracket on the front for holding the hatch open slightly as this will stop the hatch sitting properly into the hinge recess on the right side and test fitting will show what is needed.
As with the previous kits there is the full gun breech and mountings which gives you all the basic structures for a nicely detailed gun as well as two crew seats and there are additional etched parts for the inner visor mountings and the large top hatch will allow most of the detail to be easily seen. You have to take care when bending the inner visor parts to get these done but as there are hard to see afterwards is not really an issue.
As with the hull you also get the fine plastic grab handles to add around the turret if you are building the kit with these fitted but again the lack of locating points will need care in getting these in the correct positions and if Dragon had added the small paint spots we have seen on other kits it would make the job a lot easier. Another thing to watch is the part numbers of the grab handles are transposed and parts P12 should be the shorter front handles and P14 the longer rear handles and not the other way around as shown in the instructions.
There are also two small plugs added to the underside of the turret bustle and you may also want to add weld beads around the underside part join seams to add further detail here. The fit of the turret shell and the turret ring is quite good but the side join will need a little work as it is not perfectly even but this should be easy to remedy with the trusty 11 blade.
These are the usual exploded view drawings and as there are no real complicated sequences to contend with there shouldn't be any problems but the usual careful study before gluing should avoid any problems arising. The decal sheet just a good selection of turret numbers and slogans as well as the large coloured crest and flag emblem although the instructions don't actually show you where this is used.
There are 5 vehicles shown in the instructions but as we have seen with previous kits 3 are just marked "Unidentified Unit" and there is no indication of the colours to be used other than the exhaust pipes but I guess you "should know" they are painted in Russian Green overall but you would think from all research we are told goes into these kits a little more info could be given here.
Overall this is another excellent T kit of the Factory produced T but as mentioned is has more middle production features than the late production as labelled. You may also wish to add the additional armour plate panels to the glacis as seen on many of these Factory vehicles. There are some minor issues along the away as there are with any kit but overall this will build easily into another excellent T kit in this series from Dragon.
