Zvezda ATG

This is the German counterpart to the Zvezda Soviet 45mm gun. It's 1/72nd scale plastic model.


This kit is almost identical to the Soviet gun. It is very nice. It comes with two sets of trails, one open that I used and one closed for being towed.




German gun in gray and Soviet gun in green.



There are subtile differences in each part but the two kits are very similar.



Soviet version has simulated spoke wheels. Both are good sturdy wargame models, easy to build and look great. There is a tiny pin on the feet of the troops, it fits into a hole in the base. I stick the pin in the base, then cut it off. That fills the hole and I glue it from underneath. Then I mount the crew on sheet styrene.

No surprise :) The russian M1937 (53-K) was developed with support of Rheinmetall, who built the german Pak 36.

Anyways, nice little buggers :)
