The 15th Panzer Division was formed in late 1940 and went to Libya in February 1941. The 15 Pz.Div. fought during Operations Battleaxe, Crusader, the Battles of Gazala and El Alamein. The 15 Pz.Div. and the rest of the Axis forces surrendered on May 13, 1943. Some remnants of the 15 Pz.Div. managed to escape to Sicily and became part of the new 15th Panzergrenadier Division. They eventually found themselves on the Western Front where they surrendered to the British at wars end.

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.
