Item No. DR60637 - "Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.C + 3.7cm PaK 35/36 Pz.Gren.Rgt 12. 4.Pz.Div Kurland 1944"

Dragon Armor released a 1/72 scale model of an Sd.Kfz.251/1 Schützenpanzerwagen towing a 3.7cm PaK 35/36 anti-tank gun earlier. Now this fantastic combination is being reoffered, but this time the model portrays a different unit. Armed with a 7.92mm machine gun, the Sd.Kfz.251/1 transported and supported German panzer-grenadiers in battle. More than 15,000 examples of the Sd.Kfz.251 halftrack were produced during WWII, and this Dragon Armor 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 and anti-tank cannon combination from Panzergrenadier-Regiment 12 of 4. Panzer-Division. The 4th Panzer Division fought on the Eastern Front before being trapped as part of Heeresgruppe Nord at Kurland on the Latvian coast in late 1944. The Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.C is finished in an attractive three-color camouflage scheme while the PaK 35/36 wears a plain sand yellow coat. It is interesting that this weak 3.7cm anti-tank gun was still being used at this late point of the war, and perhaps reflects those desperate days. With this release, Dragon Armor has come up with yet another inspirational military combination!
