Synopsis

Modelling the Marder Self-Propelled Gun by Sam Dwyer

The term 'Marder' (loosely translated, meaning 'weasel') was the name given to the family of open-topped tank destroyers. Combining high mobility and heavy firepower, they saw significant combat action in several theatres, most notably on the Eastern Front. This self-propelled gun series embraced a great diversity of chassis types, from the French Lorraine tractor chassis of the Marder I to the Czech 38(t) chassis of the Marder III, and featured a wide variety of armament, such as the 75mm PaK 40, the PaK36(r), and captured Russian 76mm guns. Such diversity makes the Marder a perfect subject for a how-to modelling guide, and this book offers diverse challenges to modellers of different abilities.

Lovereading are lovely people who send me lovely books. What's not to love?

Gavin Dimmock

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
