Dragon Armor recently released a Kfz.70 6x4 truck towing a 3.7cm PaK 35/36 anti-tank gun. Now, this fantastic vehicle line offers something else of unique interest to collectors – an Sd.Kfz.251 halftrack pulling the same small anti-tank weapon. The Sd.Kfz.251/1 Schützenpanzerwagen armed with a 7.92mm machine gun was designed to transport panzer-grenadiers into battle, and more than 15,000 examples of all different variants were produced during WWII. This item depicts an Ausf.C type, which appeared in mid-1940. Production of the Ausf.C featured a simplified forward engine armored plate, although its many angled plates still made it difficult to manufacture efficiently.
This 1/72 scale model features a halftrack combination from the famous “Großdeutschland” Division, an elite unit of the Wehrmacht supplied with the best equipment. In 1942 it became a motorized infantry division, supporting the fatal assault on Stalingrad and becoming a mobile reserve on the north bank of the Donets River. It’s from this period that this Dragon Armor item emanates. The Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.C and PaK 35/36 are finished in a typical early-war panzer gray paint scheme. The halftrack possesses the recognizable German helmet marking of the division, as well as additional tactical markings. Here Dragon Armor has come up with an inspirational model for the enjoyment of WWII military vehicle collectors!
