Dragon has released a new 1/35 scale plastic kit of the Sd.Kfz.265 Kleiner Panzerbefehlwagen, and this latest one is better than ever. The kit depicts an Initial Production version of this small command-and-control tank. The Sd.Kfz.265 was converted from Panzer I Ausf.B training tanks, and as Germany’s first ever dedicated command tank, it served widely in the early phases of WWII. Such a vehicle was vital in order for Germany’s panzers to fulfill their visionary Blitzkrieg tactics. Thus the interior was fitted out with a more powerful FuG36 radio transmitter and map boards. A distinctive frame antenna was mounted on the hull of early vehicles so as to increase the range of the vehicle’s radios. Daimler-Benz converted approximately 190 of these Pz.Bef.Wg.I tanks between 1935 and 1937. Eventually the Sd.Kfz.265 was replaced in combat service as the vehicle was just too cramped and lightly armored.

Dragon’s 1/35 kit is a 2-in-1 version, allowing modelers to select either an Initial or Early Production version. The large frame antenna is a brand new creation, and this is one distinctive feature of this early type. It also receives new antenna supporter and new tooled Cupola specially for early production. For greater convenience and speed of assembly, this kit uses Magic Tracks in place of the previously used individual track links. There is also a useful amount of photo-etched metal components for areas like the muffler cover and rings for detailing the road wheels. Once painted, high-quality Cartograf decals will give that final touch to this small but impressively detailed model.
