This was an attempt by Alkett to create a low profile tracked platform for the 15cm Infantry Gun. The Panzer II chassis was lengthened and widened to accomodate the gun - the result being a vehicle too heavy for it's engine. The 12 produced were sent to North Africa where they were mostly lost to breakdowns due to overheating and a lack of spares. At least one of the guns and shields were transplanted in Africa onto a Panzer III chassis, which is probably what should have been done in the first place.
So not a successful vehicle, but an interesting design.
The Revell kit has been cut up so much there isn't much left - the lower chassis, suspension and tracks. Build details are here
if you want them.
