In recent weeks Dragon Armor launched a fully built-up 1/72 scale model of the Kfz.70 Personnel Carrier (Item No.60427). Dragon Armor is now following up this popular release with another important German soft-skin vehicle from WWII. The new item is a Heavy Uniform Personnel Vehicle Type 40. This 4x4 heavy car served in all theaters of WWII. The original Type 1a had four-wheel steering, while the later Type 1b produced from 1940 onwards had regular front-wheel steering. This vehicle possessed four-wheel drive, but production ceased in 1941 as part of German efforts to standardize production. The personnel carrier was powered by a V8 Horch engine of 3.823-litre capacity.

Dragon Armor’s 1/72 scale miniature version naturally makes use of 100% new toolings. The open-topped body containing three bench seats (able to accommodate five passengers and the driver) is full of detail. Even the tread pattern on the floor plate is replicated! There is also an MG34 machine gun provided on a pintle mount for antiaircraft duties. The model beautifully captures the look and stance of the 4x4 heavy car. The vehicle is finished in the standard Panzer gray color of German vehicles from the early-war period, while small details like the “WH” license plate are also present.
