This basic 251/1 Ausf. C version is loaded with multi-material parts, with ultra-fine detail, and with parts that can be posed open or closed. This kit is every bit as detailed and accurate as its 1/35 cousin!
The Sd.Kfz. 251 half-track was an armoured fighting vehicle built by Germany during World War II.
There were four main models (A - D), with many variants. The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a squad of troops to the battlefield protected from enemy fire. The open top meant that the crew was still vulnerable.
The first 2 models were produced in small numbers. The C variant had a larger production run, but was a quite complex vehicle to build, involving many angled plates that gave reasonable protection from small arms fire. The D version utilized a much simpler design, and can be easily recognized by its single piece sloping rear (with flat doors).
