This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
During World War II, the German army developed and introduced a large number of armored troop transport vehicles to increase the mobility of accompanying infantry of tank units. Among them was the Sd.Kfz.251, which was based on the 3-ton half-track; it had tires on the front and tracks in the rear, as well as an open-top armored body. It was deployed starting in 1939, and various types of this vehicle were made and used during the war. Among the variations was a type with rocket launchers mounted on both sides of the vehicle, attached to three square launch frames on the body. Three sizes of rockets -- 28cm, 30cm and 32cm -- could be loaded into the launchers.
This kit from Italeri is packed with an intense level of detail, even at 1/72 scale; the highlight of the kit are the six Wurfrahmen 40 rocket launchers, three mounted on each side of the vehicle's body. The tracks are the partially integrated type. Other variations of the Sd.Kfz.251 are offered by Italeri at the same time -- get yours now!
