Heavy Uniform Personnel Vehicle Type 40, Unidentified Unit, Eastern Front 1941 (1:72) by Dragon Diecast Armor
Item Number: DRR60516
Dragon Armor has previously offered a fully built-up model of Heavy Uniform Personnel Vehicle Type 40 used by German in WWII. That particular 1/72 scale model of this heavy passenger car was depicted with no roof and with an open passenger compartment containing an antiaircraft machine gun. Dragon Armor is now following up with another version of this important German vehicle. The new model shows the heavy personnel car in its winterized configuration with a soft-top roof and window glazing. This 4x4 heavy car was produced from 1938 onwards, and it served in all theaters of WWII. This vehicle possessed four-wheel drive, but production ceased in 1941 as part of German efforts to standardize production. The personnel carrier was powered by a V8 Horch engine of 3.823-litre capacity.
Dragon Armor's 1/72 scale model possesses an incredible level of detail. Even though the body is enclosed by a canvas roof, all the detail inside the passenger compartment is fully rendered. What's more, all the interior detail can be viewed through the transparent windows and windscreen. The car is finished in an early-war panzer gray color over-painted with a worn and scuffed layer of whitewash. This realistic paint finish, as well as the soft-top roof, gives the vehicle a whole new look.
