This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Includes 2 vehicles. The kit is made of styrene and needs to be glued to be assembled and is not a snap together kit. It is meant mainly to be a wargaming kit, i.e. you can mass assemble a platoon/group/regiment/corps in a short amount of time. However, the kit is still designed to be accurate, especially as far as scale is concerned, and as accurate as can be within the confines of a two part mold.
Combining the already proven Sd Kfz 251 half-track with the short 7.5cm tank gun created the Sd Kfz 251/9C. The guns were left over from converting the Panzer IV to the longer KwK 40 gun. They were quickly issued to heavy gun companies of Panzergrenadier Regiments where it provided fast and effective fire support allowing them to smash through enemy defences as StuGs and other fully tracked assault guns could not always be available when the Panzergrenadiers needed them. The Stummel first saw action on the Russian Front in June 1942 when two prototypes were issued for testing. They were successful and a further 150 were ordered.
