Dragon has released a fair number of Sd.Kfz. 251 halftracks in its 1/72 scale range. However, among the ranks there has never been an Sd.Kfz.251/22 variant up till now. This particular halftrack version mounted a 7.5cm PaK 40 L/46 antitank gun, and it was the last major variant to be built in this famous halftrack family. As Germany desperately sought weapons to counter the onslaught of Russian and Allied tanks, one expedient was to mount this potent antitank cannon on Ausf.D halftracks, with conversions beginning in December 1944.
Dragon’s new 1/72 kit is based on the existing high-quality Sd.Kfz.251 chassis, with all the necessary alterations enabling it to mount the 7.5cm cannon. The vehicle features a completely new gun mount, and details on the PaK 40 are delicately and accurately rendered. Additional details such as ammo cases are also supplied to populate the interior of this open-topped fighting vehicle. The Sd.Kfz. 251 has always been a popular subject amongst modelers, and this most powerful and lethal variant of all will ensure it packs a punch and is an instant hit with modelers!
