Dragon Models 1:72 Armor Collector Series 60427
Krupp Kfz.70 Protze Truck Display Model
German Army

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Krupp Kfz.70 Protze Truck   2.75"   1"

Dragon Armor has come up with a fantastic new German soft-skin vehicle, the first ever in this exciting range! Utilizing detailed research and molds from a recently released 1/72 plastic scale kit of the Krupp Protze Kfz.70, this is certainly a delightful truck model. The fully built-up miniature incorporates full detail both above and below the chassis. For example, the wheels and independent coil spring suspension are masterfully represented. The Kfz.70 Personnel Carrier is finished in a typical camouflage scheme of early-war gray, and it is registered with its very own Wehrmacht "WH" number plate. This Dragon Armor item is an excellent representation of the 6x4 truck that was a workhorse of the German military during WWII. This first German soft-skin vehicle in the Dragon Armor collection is a fine companion to the wide range of German tanks and armored fighting vehicles released to date.

Krupp Kfz.70 Protze Truck

Designed primarily as an artillery tractor, the 6x4 Krupp Protze was a workhorse of the Wehrmacht. It eventually saw use in a variety of roles, including that of mobile anti-aircraft artillery platform and more commonly, as an infantry carrier. An air-cooled 3.3L flat-four cylinder engine configuration gave the vehicle's nose its distinctive low, flat shape and provided the driver with superb forward visibility. Four-wheel drive coupled with independent six-wheel suspension made the vehicle ideally suited for light cross-country duties. Almost 7000 units were produced between 1933 and 1941.

Dragon's 1:72 scale Krupp Portze truck is constructed entirely of plastic to allow for maximum scale detail. The open-top cab is framed with a delicate transparent windshield and side mirrors and provides a clear view of driver's controls and instrument panel. The cargo bed is wonderfully detailed with simulated wood-grained sides and bolt-head construction details visible upon close inspection in addition to separately applied, hand-painted equipment. The hidden beauty of this model though, is found on the underside with accurately reconstructed details of the coil spring suspension on the rear wheels and leaf-spring suspension on the front wheels.
