7.5cm PZGR. & G. Patr. Kw.k. 40 Shells With Ammo Boxes
1/35th scale
Kit No #35381
Miniart has a new set of two different types of German ordinance used in a majority of their Panzers & guns during World War Two. Not only the ammo, but spent cases and the ammo boxes they come in are included in this set.

The two types of ammunition included are the 7.5cm PZGR & G. Patr. Kw.k. 40. The Panzergranate 39 or Pzgr. 39 was a German armor-piercing shell used during World War II. It was manufactured in various calibers and was the most common anti-tank shell used in a majority of German tanks that used the 7.5 cm KwK 40 (7.5 cm Kampfwagenkanone 40).

This new boxing from MiniArt includes:
Six plastic ammo boxes textured to resemble wooden ammo boxes that can be displayed as an open or a closed box type, and to fill them you get a total of sixteen shells of both the 7.5cm PZGR. & G. Patr. Kw.k. 40 types. Also for the action scene you get three empty shells with that "just fired" aroma - but of course in burnt plastic ­čśü...

The decals supplied in the kit are markings for not only both types of shells, but also the stencil decals for the ammo boxes also.
