Recreate the influential German WWII anti-tank gun, the 37mm pak35/36, with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
The 3.7cm gun, which was 45 calibres long had a muzzle velocity of 762 metres per second (when firing an armour piercing projectile) and penetrated a 48mm armour plate standing erect at a distance of 457 metres.
The 3.7cm anti-tank gun was immediately accepted by the German Army and officially designated Anti-tank Gun Model 35/36 (PAK 35/36). In 1936, the Germans began to deliver the gun to the anti-tank gun company of each division as its standard equipment. It is reported that the excellent design of the then typical anti-tank gun exerted a great influence on the progress of anti-tank guns in the Soviet Union, the United States and Japan.
Clear instructions, however be careful with the positioning of various control handles as they may foul the breech elevation movement, some parts very small so watch they dont escape unto the floor. German gun crew are good and nicely modeled unlike the UK Universal carrier 1/35 by Tamiya crew, looks like they are on a picnic but a nice kit.
