The Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) was originally a Czechoslovak tank of pre-World War II design. After Czechoslovakia was taken over by Germany, it was adopted by the German Army, seeing service in the invasions of Poland, France and the USSR. Production ended in 1942, when its main armament was deemed inadequate. In all, over 1,400 Pz. 38(t)s were manufactured. The chassis of the Pz. 38(t) continued to be produced for the Marder III (19421944) with some of its components used in the later Jagdpanzer 38 (19441945) tank destroyers and its derivative vehicles. The special vehicle designation for the tank in Germany was Sd. Kfz. 140.

CKD Sd.Kfz.140 Panzer 38(t)

Designed originally for the Czech military, the LT vz 38 was produced as the Panzer 38(t) after the German occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1938. In comparison to Germany's Panzer I and Panzer II tanks at the time, the Panzer 38(t) was well armed and extremely reliable, prompting Germany to produce more than 1400 examples. When it became clear that the design was outclassed by the Soviet T-34, its chassis and drivetrain continued to be developed into the Marder III mobile anti-tank gun and Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer tank destroyer.

Gaso.Line Master Fighter

The Gaso.Line "Master Fighter" model range presents ready made resin models of military vehicles.

Master Fighter display model vehicles feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Metal barrels, photo-etched metal grills and surface details.
  • Rotating turret and accurate hull.
  • Painted, fitted, non-moving tracks and detailed non-rotating wheels.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Clear acrylic display case to protect model.

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
