1:35 German 7.5cm ANTI-TANK Gun Pak 40/L46 from TAMIYA

The 7.5 cm Pak 40 was a German 75 millimeter anti-tank gun developed in 1939–1941 by Rheinmetall and used during the Second World War. With 23,303 examples produced, the Pak 40 formed the backbone of German anti-tank guns for the later part of World War II, mostly in towed form, but also on a number of tank destroyers such as the Marder series. Depending on the source, the Pak 40 may be referred to as the 7.5/L46, referring to the barrel's length in calibers.

A cracking kit for the money as you get everything you need here including the crew and ammunition accessories. The gun is a joy to build and is well detailed. The kit features 75mm shells as well as spent cartridges and a metal ammunition case. The limber arms are moveable, but for "in transport" version the braces should be cemented into position. For most hobbyist content with having it for personal enjoyment, with careful painting it can look very nice.
