This 1/72nd scale howitzer is in glueable plastic from Zvezda.
It is the late war version with the PAK 75 type carriage and muzzle break.
The early war versions were towed by horses and this version was towed by vehicles.
A comparison shot of the new and old howitzers, Revell on the right side.
The Zvezda has a base and two crewmen. The Revell kit has a large crew, and a full 6 horse team, gun leader with riding horse and cassion and loads of little bits. Both are easy to build. I got four of the Zvezda ones.
