Great book, got mine some while ago, the good info is that one can use the Tamiya GEPARD model for correct resemblance.
Despite having to stretch the lower hull etc., the rear with the big "Biber-style" storage doors was in service, Germany having utilized the original prototype/testbed hulls for some of the series vehicles.
Also the ROLAND/Marder would be a kit I would certainly build, I know the one being offered by Elite-Models but sadly their quality isn‘t up to date.

Good review!

It was my pleasure! I have to say I'm impressed with the Tankograd books I've seen so far. I thought the dual-language text was a wasteful gimmick at first, but it certainly doesn't reduce the usefulness of the information. And it is improving my grasp of technical German...

This one looks to be a big plus mark for Tankograd. Thank you for the review.

Tom Cromwell takes a look inside Tankograd's reference book on Modern German Anti-Aircraft Tanks, written by Peter Blume.
