Dragon Armor is following up its earlier release of a 1/72 scale Kfz.70 6x4 truck with a second version. This type of vehicle served throughout WWII after mass production commenced in 1933. A total of about 7,000 trucks were produced up till 1942. This 6x4 vehicle was powered by an air-cooled 3.308-liter flat-four engine. The horizontal engine gave rise to the truck’s distinctive sharply sloped nose, and also to its nickname “Boxer”. The truck was used for all kinds of purposes, and it was commonly employed for towing light artillery pieces such as the 3.7cm Pak 35/36 antitank cannon. However, Dragon’s new item shows the truck in its Kfz.70 Personnel Carrier configuration.

The fully built-up 1/72 scale miniature incorporates full detail both above and below the chassis. For example, the wheels and independent coil spring suspension are masterfully represented. The Kfz.70 Personnel Carrier is finished in a whitewash camouflage scheme so commonly encountered during winter on the Eastern Front. This scheme has been carefully brushed onto the truck, giving it a realistically worn look. This winterized Dragon Armor item is an excellent representation of the 6x4 truck that was a workhorse of the German military during WWII, and it’s a fine companion to Dragon Armor’s growing range of German soft-skin vehicles.
