German WWII Pak 40 75mm Anti-Tank Gun: 1:18 Scale
The scourge of Shermans and T34s, Germany produced and deployed more than 23,000 Pak 40 7.5cm anti-tank guns during WWII. With the first examples sent to Russia in 1941 to combat increasing thickness of armor on Soviet tanks, by 1943 PaK 40s formed the bulk of the German anti-tank artillery. The PaK 40 was the standard German anti-tank gun until the end of the war, and was supplied by Germany to its allies.The detail and painting on these models are awesome! As a 40-somthing guy, I have to say, these are painted and detailed way cooler than I was ever able to produce as a modeler. New-in-the box 1/18 scale plastic model kit includes a Pak 40 with gun that swivels and elevates, trails that open for deployment and close for limbering, three ammunition crates (each with three highly detailed rounds--nine rounds total), and one fully posable Army crew member with full accouterments and optional overcoat and arms to convert into an member of the SS Division Deutschland. Minor glueless assembly required. There are lots of small parts. Recommended for ages 5+. These models are out of production so don't hesitate to buy! When these are gone, that is it. Don't be left out in the cold with no anti-tank defenses like the 6th Army at Stalingrad!
