Hanomag Sd.Kfz.251 Schutzenpanzerwagen   7.25"   2.75"

Die cast metal and plastic replica of the Sd. Kfz. 251/1 Hanomag in 1:32nd scale. The Sd. Kfz. 251/1 Hanomag was the first in a series of highly mobile armored German transport vehicles. It embodied the fast pace advances of the blitzkrieg war. Over 15,000 Sd. Kfz. 251 half-track vehicles with many variants were manufactured during WWII and they saw many improvements and changes during the course of the war.

Hanomag Sd.Kfz.251 Schutzenpanzerwagen

Designed to meet a need for a vehicle that could safely transport infantry to the battlefield, the Sd.Kfz. 251 served Germany from 1939 to 1945. This half-track had a large track area and characteristic "slack track" design, with overlapping/interleaved main road wheels. It had an open top, which left the crew vulnerable to high explosive rounds and aircraft attack, but for practical purposes the design was so successful that it was produced in four models with no fewer than 23 variants. The "Hanomag" proved to be one of the most reliable half-tracks of the war and a total of 15,252 were built.

Each release features rolling rubber tracks with working suspension on each track wheel and a variety of battlefield accessories. The front wheels are steerable with details of the steering linkages visible below. The engine hatch opens to reveal a highly detailed Maybach 6 cylinder engine. The large, wide-open crew compartment provides a clear view of a fully rendered interior. The model's hull features opening rear doors and storage compartments and a rotating rear machine gun.
