The Sd.Kfz.2, more widely known as the Kettenkrad, is a unique German vehicle of WWII. This small vehicle built by NSU Motorenwerke AG is essentially a cross between a motorbike and a halftrack. Originally conceived in 1939 as a light gun tractor for airborne troops, it ended up being widely deployed by all kinds of German units. It also found a role in some specialist tasks such as an aircraft tug, and for laying communication cables. A total of 8345 wartime Kettenkrads were manufactured up until 1944, although production continued after the war too.
Some years ago Dragon released a couple of 1/35 scale plastic kits of the Sd.Kfz.2 Kettenkrad. Now this novel and fascinating vehicle has received a makeover to bring it up to modern-day standards. The new kit features a Late Production model with the appropriate modifications such as new front driving fork, side hull. The Kettenkrad was designed as a light towing vehicle, and this is exactly what it is doing in Item No.6446, for it is towing a 3.7cm PaK 36 antitank gun. Perhaps the most eye-catching feature of this new kit is the set of brand new DS tracks. The attractive set also comes with a set of German soldiers to create an instant diorama. To make their job easier, the soldiers have newly tooled hands, while the driver is a new figure as well.
