This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

The Sd.Kfz.250 that saw widespread use in WWII was a light armored halftrack developed by Germany. Built by Demag, delays in production meant it did not enter wartime service until 1941. It was adapted to various roles, and a range of variants appeared. One of these was the Sd.Kfz.253 leichter Gepanzerter Beobachtungskraftwagen (usually abbreviated to le beob.Pz.Wg.). This particular vehicle was a light armored vehicle designed for artillery observation, and the half-tracked vehicle was to accompany Sturmgeschutz units. A total of 285 of these vehicles were manufactured from 1940-41. It differed from the standard open-topped Sd.Kfz.250 halftrack in that the rear compartment was fully enclosed with a roof, and the armor overall was thicker. A large circular roof hatch lent itself to observation tasks. The Sd.Kfz.253 was operated by a crew of four and it weighed 5.7 tons.

Cyber-Hobby's newest Orange Box selection features a plastic kit version of the Sd.Kfz.253 le beob.Pz.Wg. The vehicle is based on the legendary Dragon kit but it has been improved even further by the addition of a set of Magic Tracks. This means assembly of the little halftrack is even more straightforward for modelers of all skill levels. To make it even more attractive, the Orange Box set comes with a set of four plastic figures. This is Dragon's set of commanders depicted in a field conference. The figures are dressed in winter uniforms, and they provide the ideal match for the early-war artillery observation vehicle. Now, with one convenient set, modelers can create an instant diorama without putting a dent in their wallets!
