Dragon has already released Initial Production and Early Production versions of the Sonderkraftfahrzeug 7 (more simply known as the Sd.Kfz.7), and they received a very positive response because of their incredible level of accuracy and full detail. Now another 1/35 scale halftrack family member is being released, and it’s a 1943 Production vehicle. The Sd.Kfz.7 was a halftrack employed by all branches of the German military during WWII. Designed primarily as a tractor for towing artillery pieces like the 8.8cm FlaK gun and 15cm s.FH.18 150mm howitzer, the Sd.Kfz.7 could accommodate a 12-man gun crew. Like all military vehicles, it received modifications as production progressed.

Casual observers might think the 1943 Production type is identical to earlier ones, but in fact there are significant differences that connoisseurs will immediately spot! Unique features found on this kit are brand new hull sides, plus a new rear plate with reduced dimensions that also eliminated the door for the spare-wheel compartment. Beginning in March 1943, certain features such as turn signals, sidelights and brake lights were all deleted. Also new are the fenders/track guards, and a preheater for the engine coolant that was installed in the footstep on the front-right side of the halftrack. All details are accurately replicated in this kit, of course including those unique to the 1943 Production variant, and careful engineering design means parts fit together with consummate ease. This 1/35 scale model of the Sd.Kfz.7 is set to become another Dragon success, and it will fit well into any mid- to late-war diorama scene. Indeed, it’s a perfect match for the s.FH.18 artillery and 8.8cm FlaK kits that Dragon already offers in its impressive range.
