The German 21st Panzer Division was an armored unit probably best known for their actions in North Africa between 1941 and 1943. In 1944 with the immanent Allied invasion Erwin Rommel wanted to have enough men and machinery to stop the invasion on the beaches but Hitler placed them too far back to make that possible. On the first day of the invasion the 21st faced British paratroops at Ranville and then moved to stop the British and Canadian forces near Caen. Sustaining heavy losses the 21st began to retreat toward Germany and was almost annihilated in the Falaise Pocket.

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.
