German Army, Eastern Front, 1941

Horch Horch 108   2.5"   1.25"

Dragon Armor has previously offered a fully built-up model of Heavy Uniform Personnel Vehicle Type 40 used by German in WWII. That particular 1/72 scale model of this heavy passenger car was depicted with no roof and with an open passenger compartment containing an antiaircraft machine gun. Dragon Armor is now following up with another version of this important German vehicle. The new model shows the heavy personnel car in its winterized configuration with a soft-top roof and window glazing. This 4x4 heavy car was produced from 1938 onwards, and it served in all theaters of WWII. This vehicle possessed four-wheel drive, but production ceased in 1941 as part of German efforts to standardize production. The personnel carrier was powered by a V8 Horch engine of 3.823-litre capacity.

Horch Horch 108

Designed in the mid 1930s as a personnel transport for the German Army and Medical Corps, the Horch 1A (also known as the Horch 108) served until the end of World War II. Virtually all German combat units employed a Horch 1A, which was used to tow the 20mm FlaK 38 anti-aircraft gun. The Horch 1A had several ahead-of-its-time features, including four steerable wheels and two spare wheels mounted externally on rotating stub-axles, which helped prevent the chassis from "bottoming-out" when crossing rough terrain. Produced from 1937 to 1940, variants of this vehicle included ambulances and luxury transport for German officers.

Dragon's 1:72 Horch 108 series trucks are constructed entirely of plastic to allow for maximum scale detail. This model has a roomy interior, with separately painted seat cushions, a simulated diamond plated floor board and delicate steering wheel and transmission shift levers. On the exterior, the side mirrors, headlights and bumper have all been separately applied. An exceptional amount of scale detail is clearly visible on the model's underside such as an intricately detailed wish-bone suspension and separately applied engine exhaust system. Releases in this series include open cab with a center mounted machine gun and a fully closed cab with a simulated canvas top and transparent windows.
