Take a moment to admire Tim''s latest creation. Dragon''s Marder II, detailed with Cyber Hobbies update kit and scratched details.

Wow, makes me hesitant to even begin my Marder II kit. Mine will be OOB with hardly any of the nice weathering and detailing Tim's done. I've been fond of this vehicle since building the old Tamiya kit with the little pirate head markings.

Thanks gentlemen! After building this kit, I can admit, it was very enjoyable, and actually is my favorite Dragon release so far. Though Im sure with all the new stuff comin out they can top it. Now that Ive seen the new Voyager set and the engine set from Tank Workshop, Im gonna have to build another of these!

Excellent work Tim, with everything I see of yours I am getting more and more impressed.
I recently got one of these with the Cyber-Hobby update set, if mine turns out half as good I'll be very happy.

Hi guys, (and gals?? )
I've been fortunate enough to see this one in person and not that I need to, but I can assure everyone it looks just as good in the "flesh". It won best Axis armor in a local contest, and at least in my mind was the best armor model on the tables! Once again, nice work Tim!

Best,
Mike

Excellent Tim. I fell in love with this, when I first saw the radio set up in the intial reviews and then sam Dwyers interior. Classic kit and you┤ve done it justice. Love the radio wiring and the final weathering. One of your best to date!

Yes i remember seeing this in one of threads.

Fantastic work on the interior, especially with the weathering and all over scratching.

Excellent work Tim!

Great build!! Very good job on the details and the weathering. I like the way you have "busy'ed up" the fighting compartment without overdoing it.

Thanks for sharing
