Marder, Marder, Marder
« on: May 07, 2015, 03:44:25 PM »
Hello,
I´m new here. Some years I´m looking sometimes here.  And I Know, here shown kits from my collection. Now I register here. My favorites are tanks: testvehicles and sometimes "what if".  I begin to preset my Marder collection. I have over 40 vehicles from this family.

Wow, just wow!

You are definitely committed, or is that addicted?

Anyway I have always had a soft spot for the Marder, being an ex-RAAC M-113 Crewman driver I would have loved it if we had something as cool as the Marder instead of our old buckets.  Just as an aside have you ever seen the conceptional Rapier Marder from the 1970s with a fully retractable Rapier systems with 4 ready to fire missiles?

I remember seeing it in an old Janes of some description when I was at uni but the thoughtful people at secret projects have put it all together for us.

Hello Diethelm,

While I am not the first to welcome you to Beyond The Sprues, I have been following your work at modellversium.de for many years and always enjoy seeing your models.  So it is like seeing an old friend once again after many years apart. 

Seeing all of your Marder models in one image is quite impressive.  Will you be doing the same with your Leopards and Unimogs as well? 


Real or whatif, all of your models are more than welcome here at BTS!

glad you found us, Didi !  Have seen your work before but couldn't find a site with good pic of your models until now. :)

Your Feuerlöschpanzers made me start my own !  Maybe I'll get my half-converted Marder out again ...... and now that Takom has its Luchs out, I'm wondering what to do with the old Revell kit ;)

Thank´s for your interest. I have only the family-photo from my Marders, not from the Leo´s. Because my projekt was in 2011: 40 years Marder- 40 models. All my tanks in 1/35.
Weaver, I see your "Marder" here before. Good idea.
Volkodav, I see a sketch from the Marder-Rapier in a Marder-book. But i don´t know, if it was a real testvehicle.
raafif, old Revell-Luchs? No Revell, the old VACU-formed, over 20 years old.

And  the "ChernayaAkula" has years before speak on a model-show with me.
I´m a member in other comunitys. So I put slowly.

Just a concept I believe, sketches and a brochure, probably not even a mock up.  Does that exclude it from your project?
