1/35 DRAGON SD.KFZ. 252 LEICHTER PZ.BEF.WG DR6571
The Sd.Kfz.252 was a lightly armored ammunition carrier that accompanied Sturmartillerie batteries. From June 1940 through to September 1941, a total of 413 Sd.Kfz.252s were built, though, a small number of these Sd.Kfz.252s were later adapted to the command vehicle role. The Sd.Kfz.252 Leichter Bef.Wagen version is easily identified externally by the presence of a star antenna on the right side of the vehicle. It is precisely this variant that is represented in Dragon's newest kit. The star antenna and a new antenna mount are present, while the halftrack interior has been completely revamped. All the ammunition racks have been stripped out of the vehicle interior, and a radio set and bench seat have been fitted in their place. As a member of Dragon?s updated 250 Alte series, the kit naturally features a one-piece upper hull and a one-piece chassis. Convenient and easy-to-fit Magic Tracks are supplied too. The Sd.Kfz.252 Leichter Bef.Wagen was a rare vehicle, so this splendid 1/35 scale kit allows modelers to create something different.
