280026 – SdKfz 305 3-ton 4×2 Cargo Truck “Opel Blitz”

 20.95 incl. VAT

The Opel Blitz series of 3-ton trucks (designated as SdKfz 305) proved the true backbone of German military strength in World War 2. Production began in Apr 1937 and proceeded into Jul 1944 to which some 70,000 4×2 Opel Blitz trucks were delivered out of German factories.

Seven main variants which include heavy ambulance, radio or telephone communication van, standard truck, fire truck, emergency vehicle, and fuel tanker. Some were converted to mount AA guns to guard against low-flying aircraft.

This is a 2-sprue base kit for the 3-tonner. It includes a single piece engine & driver cab for ease of assembly and model integrity without scarifying details. It also comes with a detachable canvas top with an open or close rear tarpaulin. Other features include optional benches, searchlights, spare tire, under-carriage storage boxes and fuel cans. Driver and passenger included!

280047 - SdKfz 305/3a Expansion Set - Box Body (Einheitskoffer)

One of the variants of the SdKfz 305 Opel Blitz and the SdKfz 3a Maultier was the box body (Einheitskoffer).  The design of the Einheitskoffer was identical for all trucks in terms of dimensions, position and number of windows, doors and stowage boxes, and was made of plywood and hard-fibre panels.  This design approach offered a wide variety of potential usage.  It was used for a number of roles including workshop, laundry, laboratory, command, communication, cipher office, ambulance, kitchen and many other purposes.

This approach created many small differences in details, including the superstructure frame, telescopic antenna mast, stowage space, stowage boxes, internal lighting, and additional tools.  Worth mentioning, the Luftwaffe alone introduced no less than 137 variants under the designation Kfz 305.
