The Marder III Ausf M tank destroyer, which made its first appearance in mid 1943, was based on the out-dated Czech-built 38(t) chassis.
By most accounts the Marder IIIM was an effective tank hunter, with its 7.5cm Pak40/3 gun firing armor piercing and high explosive rounds.
Replacement tracks for the Marder are worth the expense in my opinion because the tracks are highly visible in the finished model, and the realistic sag is difficult (but not impossible) to achieve with vinyl tracks.

First the rear-engined SdKfz139 with 7.62cm Russian gun (which gets a four-view 1/35 plan) and SdKfz138 with 7.5cm PaK40, then both rear- and mid-engined Grilles with the 15cm infantry gun, and then the mid-engined SdKfz138 Ausf M with its PaK 40.
