Really nice!

" The Kfz.69 was used to tow the 3.7cm PaK.36 anti-tank gun, designed originally in 1924 as a horse-drawn artillery piece. In the early 1930's the carriage was redesigned for motor transport and the Kfz.69 developed as its primary tractor. The PaK.36 could penetrate 31mm of armour at 500 meters, which was more than enough to penetrate most of the lightly armoured tanks of the period. It was used in Poland, France, North Africa and Russia up until 1942 when it was replaced by larger guns. With the demise of the PaK.36, the Kfz.69 was often used to tow small 2cm and 3.7cm anti-aircraft guns."

There are some really good kits out there this is perhaps one of them Would make a nice display piece for a war games room.

Display piece yes. Bit finicky as a gamer's model.

I have three from Tamiya in 1:48 scale in different configurations, which are used for my WWII Chain of Command gaming. Dunno what is meant by finicky as a gamer's model? To support the plastic wheels, I mounted the model vehicle on a base, and flocked like any other model I place on the table. Works like a champ!
