DR60498 - 1/72 Sd.Kfz.222 DAK


Item : DR60498 - 1/72 Sd.Kfz.222 DAK

Prior to WWII, Germany introduced a wide range of tracked and wheeled armored vehicles to equip its powerful military. One family of wheeled vehicles introduced in 1936 was the Leichter Panzerspähwagen (“Light Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle”). These vehicles were based on a Horch 801 heavy car chassis to which an armored body was added. Early in WWII they performed well as a reconnaissance vehicle for panzer divisions in Western Europe, the Balkans and North Africa. Dragon Armor is introducing a further Sd.Kfz.222 model from the Leichter Panzerspähwagen family. The Sd.Kfz.222 is armed with a 2cm KwK.30 cannon and MG34 machine gun in an open-topped turret. A crew of three operated the Sd.Kfz.222.”.

Possessing a superb level of detail, Dragon Armor’s 1/72 scale model of the Sd.Kfz.222 is impressive in appearance. Different to previous releases, this model is finished in the sand-colored camouflage of the Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) that fought in North Africa from February 1941 through to May 1943. The vehicle also bears the palm tree symbol common to DAK vehicles. The little model has been especially weighted with internal ballast to give it a more realistic and satisfying ‘feel’. Dragon Armor’s fully assembled Sd.Kfz.222 is full of detail such as a photo-etched mesh screen covering the open-topped turret and a hollow gun muzzle. This little DAK model is ready to rove across sand and desert!
