The standard anti-tank gun of Germany’s forces in September 1939 was the 3.7cm PaK, which is often but apparently erroneously referred to today as the PaK36. This was an excellent weapon that 1st saw real action in the Spanish Civil War, but by the hostilities of 1940 it was largely obsolete as tank armor was now thick enough to resist it. Replacements like the PaK38 & PaK40 were on their way, but the numerous 3.7cm guns were still used until they could be withdrawn, increasingly in secondary roles, garrisons or for training. One attempt to improve its potency & prolong its life was the stielgranate 41, a fin stabilised hollow charge rocket propelled grenade that was fitted into the muzzle of the gun. A special propellant cartridge was fed into the chamber which threw the grenade at the target when fired. This did improve the destructive power of the weapon but was not without drawbacks & in the long term the higher calibre weapons remained the way ahead.

The guns in this set are made up of only eight pieces, making them quick to put together. Of course some detail is lost by this simplified approach but it is faithful to the general appearance of the gun and looks pretty good to all but a detailed examination. The stielgranate 41 charge pictured with the crew does not, of course, fit into the muzzle, but can be glued on to produce the desired effect, and its inclusion in this set is a thoughtful extra that is welcome.

This gun and crew is not a collector’s model, but anyone wanting to supply their 1/72 scale Wehrmacht armies with good numbers of this gun quickly and cheaply will find this set very useful.
