This lot concerns a beautifully accurately recreated 1:2 version of the original Panzer III tank. The model is powered by a petrol engine, but it also has a number of very special features such as a rotating turret, moving cannon, lighting, fans, etc. The model makes a very realistic impression and absolute defining ‘toys for boys’! Imagine driving an almost 10 feet tank by remote control. It can be operated via wireless control, which makes it very impressive show piece at military shows and fairs, but it is also a very nice asset for tank collectors on a smaller budget.

The Panzerkampfwagen III, commonly known as the Panzer III, was a medium tank developed in the 1930s by Germany and was used extensively in World War II. The official German ordnance designation was Sd.Kfz. 141. It was intended to fight other armored fighting vehicles and serve alongside and support the similar Panzer IV, which was originally designed for infantry support.
Initially the Panzer III had the same 3.7 cm gun as the infantry used for anti-tank work, but later models were given 5 cm gun. However, this was the largest gun that could be fitted within the limitations of the turret ring, and it was insufficient against Soviet T-34 and KV-1 tanks. Instead, the Panzer IV which had a larger turret ring, was redesigned to mount the long-barreled 7.5 cm KwK 40 gun and became the main German tank.
The Panzer III effectively swapped roles with the Panzer IV; from 1942 the last version of the Panzer III (Panzer III N) mounted the short barreled 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24 that the first Panzer IVs had been fitted with.
Production of the Panzer III ceased in 1943 but the Sturmgeschütz III assault gun which had been developed from the Panzer III chassis continued in production until the end of the war.
