IT0-6490 - Italeri Models
In 1935 the Austrian Boehler company developed a lightweight antitank gun called the M 35, which was a 47mm weapon that was small and light enough to break into five separate loads for use with pack animals. A later model, built in Italy, the M 39, used a slightly different design of carriage and was some 130 pounds lighter. It saw wide use with the Italian army, as it was light and could throw a 3 pound high-explosive projectile for infantry support.
The kit's components for the gun consists of 52 parts and includes all of the necessary parts as well as six rounds and a case for the ammunition.
When constructed the kit has the gun with trails and spade deployed for combat with the wheels removed to lower the silhouette. There is a sprung axle mount which comes with the wheel mounts in place. Stub axles are then glued to the wheels for display in the removed position.
There are 5 crew figures, with the gun commander and two of the crew have been sculpted with beards and moustaches and all with good expressions. They appear to be wearing Italian airborne helmets from what I can determine with the officer in a "tent hat". The four crew figures cover the gunner, loader and two "other numbers" with extra rounds.
