I have no info regarding the Marder III; however, Marquette kits are sometimes boxed by RPM and Alan. I have several and they are well detailed, but the instructions are simplistic. The quality is good, around early Italeri, and they have fine details and small parts.

Yes Bill, that kit along with their new release of the Russian T 26 4 light tank are original designs from Marquette.
I have yet to find any reviews of their kits. Being that they're fairly new, give it some time before reviews are released.

BTW, Welcome aboard here, glad to have ya!

I've got an RPM T-26T, I wonder if it is the predecessor to the Marquette T-26? I'm just very leary of kits that utilize the same hull and are boxed by companies that have a history of re-boxing each other. Not that there's anything wrong with the RPM kit.

I wonder if the Marquette kit is any better than the original Italeri Marder III? I would wager the Tamiya kit to be the better of the three 38t chassised Marder IIIs.
