Dragon is proud to announce the arrival of its long-awaited kit of a 1/35 scale Sd.Kfz.10 halftrack. This important kit helps fill an important gap in model coverage of Germany's numerous halftrack types. The Sd.Kfz.10 was a light design in the 1-ton-payload class that was intended as a prime mover for small towed guns such as the 3.7cm PaK 35/36 or 2cm FlaK 30. Its total capacity was eight troops. Demag delivered the first vehicles in 1938, but eventually seven factories were involved in producing approximately 14,000 examples. Dragon's kit represents an Ausf.B model from the 1942 time period. While the Sd.Kfz.10 was conceived as a prime mover, it was also commonly used as a personnel carrier, as shown in the box top artwork.
As already mentioned, Dragon's 1/35 scale kit depicts a halftrack built in 1942, one that still possessed a semiautomatic transmission. Certainly compared to tanks and many other halftracks, this is not a large vehicle. However, although it may be small in stature, it is big on detail. For instance, it possesses a full interior in the driver's and troop compartment, and even the engine and transmission hidden under the hood are fully present. The crew seats even possess a textured surface. The middle tier of interleaved road wheels is new especially for this kit. The Sd.Kfz.10 was used in all theaters of WWII, thus giving modelers unlimited scope as they explore their creative impulses. It was a versatile vehicle, and modelers will find the same when they combine it with other panzer kits or figure sets from Dragon's impressive collection.
