Hanomag Sd.Kfz.11 Half-Track   3"   1.25"

September 1, 1939 Germany invaded Poland without any formal declaration of war. While the Germans moved in from the west the Soviet Union moved in from the east and between the two invaders carved up the entire country. The Blitzkrieg was so fast and overwhelming along with superior equipment and training the Polish forces found themselves severely outnumbered and outclassed. Many Polish units were cavalry still using horses and they didnít stand a chance against tanks and heavy artillery. The invasion of Poland was completed on October 6, 1939.

Hanomag Sd.Kfz.11 Half-Track

Designed as a prime-mover for medium towed guns, the Sd.Kfz.11 entered production in 1937. By German standards, the Sd.Kfz.11 was a relatively small half-track, weighing in at 16,000lbs and approximately 18 feet in length. It proved extremely versatile on the battlefield though, and was capable of carrying up to eight troops while towing a trailer or gun (typically anti-tank or anti-aircraft guns). In total more than 9,000 examples were produced, although the same chassis and drivetrain formed the basis of more than 15,000 Sd.Kfz.251 armored personnel carriers that were also produced.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Sd.kfz.11 half-track has a plastic body that allows for accurate replication of details, and a diecast metal chassis that provides weight and feel. The body features a crystal clear windshield with separately applied headlamps up front and fine scale rivet details at the rear. With both the front and rear rag-tops in the down configuration, a clear view of the half-track's interior is provided, including a pad-printed instrument panel, a complete set of driver's controls, and simulated front and rear leather covered bench seats. The model's simulated torsion-bar suspension of its six interlaced road wheels is visible on the underside.
