1/35 Aufklarungspanzer 38(t) mit 2cm Kw.K.38 ~ Smart Kit

Dragon’s 1/35 kit of the Aufklarungspanzer 38(t) is based on thorough and exhaustive research. The design team took innumerable measurements of the chassis of an actual vehicle in order to ensure comprehensive accuracy. Slide molds are widely used to render maximum detail and to minimize the chore of assembly. There are even interior details inside the fighting compartment of the Aufklarungspanzer 38(t). This kit mates Dragon’s existing 2cm turret masterpiece with the chassis of the Czech 38(t) in an extremely smart combination.

About the Aufklarungspanzer 38(t):
Production of the Luchs (Lynx) tracked armored reconnaissance vehicle ended in January 1944 after only 100 were built. Therefore, an alternative was needed by Germany, and the chassis of the Czech-built Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) was selected. The result was the Aufklarungspanzer 38(t), which featured a 2cm KwK 38 gun mounted in a Hängelafette (“swivel mounting”) turret. (Incidentally, this is the same turret as mounted on the Sd.Kfz. 250/9, 251/23 and 234/1). In the end, only fifty of these reconnaissance vehicles were produced.
