Tamiya German Self-Propelled Wespe "Italian Front" Howitzer Plastic Model Kit, 1/35 Scale

This model faithfully recreates the German Self-Propelled Howitzer Wespe. It is a classic model from within the Tamiya catalogue, but this version includes updated parts and new marking options for vehicles that fought on the Italian front.

Originally designed as a stopgap, with a production run of 676, this Pz.Kpfw. II chassis-based howitzer exceeded German expectations. Intended mainly for infantry support, the Pz.Kpfw. II’s moving turret was replaced with a boxy stationary superstructure equipped with the Type 18/2 10.5cm L/28 howitzer. While the crew of 5 were not blessed with overwhelming protection, their vehicle was a mobile threat to Allied forces nonetheless.
