Just wondered if the Wespe is a replica? I assume so, but it looks very genuine!

 

There was also an original Stug? (as well as the replica 432 based one)

I think the top one is a Marder 3. It is using a 38t running gear (which might be post war, but the same pattern), mated to a genuine Pak40 and genuine Marder 3 armour plate that was recovered from Russia. Looks very nice.

 

The STUG is genuine, ex Africa Korps, captured in N Africa sent to the UK for testing and eventually ending up on a range before going to Wheatcroft collection. Swapped for A schimwagen and then restored but fitted with a 432 drive train. A super machine.

Interesting! Thanks for the info.
