Sd.Kfz.7 8t Typ HL m 11 Casual observers might think the 1943 Production type is identical to earlier ones, but in fact there are significant differences that connoisseurs will immediately spot! Unique features found on this kit are brand new hull sides, plus a new rear plate with reduced dimensions that also eliminated the door for the spare-wheel compartment. Beginning in March 1943, certain features such as turn signals, sidelights and brake lights were all deleted. Also new are the fenders/track guards, and a preheater for the engine coolant that was installed in the footstep on the front-right side of the halftrack. All details are accurately replicated in this kit, of course including those unique to the 1943 Production variant, and careful engineering design means parts fit together with consummate ease. This 1/35 scale model of the Sd.Kfz.7 is set to become another Dragon success, and it will fit well into any mid- to late-war diorama scene. Indeed, it’s a perfect match for the s.FH.18 artillery and 8.8cm FlaK kits that Dragon already offers in its impressive range.
