Details

The Panzer III was developed in the mid-1930's as the main light tank of the German army. It began production in 1937 but did not enter full manufacture until 1939 with the PzKw Ausf F. Originally armed with 37mm KwK L/46.5 gun, they were refitted with the 50mm KwK 38 L/42 gun from August, 1940. The Panzerbefehlswagen Ausf. K was virtually identical to the standard Panzer III Ausf. M - storage room for ammunition was taken up by new radios and there were extra vision ports - and was armed with the same 50mm KwK39 L/60 gun. The Ausf. K replaced the distinctive frame antenna with a star antenna. The Ausf K remained in front line service well into 1944. The model is incredibly detailed and comes with a large range of stowage (inc. a bucket!) and fuel cans as well as spare track pieces and a commander.
