1/50th Scale.  Measures 5.25" long x 2" wide.

The model featured is a typical Sd. Kfz. 7 of the 12th Army, decorated in the traditional overall dark grey of the German artillery units in the West. This was used as a personnel carrier by the troops and was highly effective at overcoming the terrain of the Ardennes that had been considered as too big an obstacle for the spearhead of the German offensive.

Designed to meet a 1934 requirement for an eight ton armored half-track vehicle, The Sd.Kfz.7 first entered service in 1938. Its primary use was as a tractor for the 8.8 cm FlaK gun and 150 mm howitzer, but anti-aircraft variants were also produced. It could carry gun crews of up to 12 men and their gear, with room for ammunition storage as well. Used throughout the war, the Sd.Kfz. 7 appeared in the 1940 Paris victory parade, was featured in German propaganda films and became one of the most iconic half-track vehicles of its time.
