280040 – SdKfz 250/251 Expansion Set – SdKfz 251/16 Ausf C/D

 9.95 incl. VAT

The SdKfz 251/16 (based on the SdKfz 251/1) was fitted with two flame projectors and initially a rear mounted flamethrower (Ausf C only), detachable but still connected to the vehicle, to be operated by dismounted infantry.  This was in addition to the standard forward machine gun mount.
Six SdKfz 251/16 Flammpanzerwagens were authorised for issue to each Panzergrenadier regiment or in the Pioneer battalion.  Though vulnerable, they were used very successfully at night to quickly attack enemy infantry who had just captured German trenches, hitting the enemy before they could consolidate and bring up the heavy weapons that would make them much costlier to defeat later.
EXPANSION KIT ONLY – Requires SdKfz 251 BASE KIT* to complete full model.
* Base Kit includes one of the following:
280031 SdKfz 251/1 Ausf C

280031 - SdKfz 251/1 Ausf C

The SdKfz 251 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251) half-track was an armoured fighting vehicle designed and first built by the Hanomag Company during World War II.  Used by the Wehrmacht, the SdKfz 251 was designed to transport the panzergrenadiers of the German mechanized infantry corps into battle.  SdKfz 251s were the most widely produced German half-tracks of the war, with at least 15,252 vehicles and variants produced by various manufacturers, and were commonly referred to simply as “Hanomags” by both German and Allied soldiers.

 

There were four main model modifications (Ausführung A through D), which formed the basis for at least 22 variants.  The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a single squad of panzergrenadiers to the battlefield protected from enemy small arms fire, and with some protection from artillery fire.  In addition, the standard mounting of at least one MG34 or MG42 machine gun allowed the vehicle to provide support by fire for the infantry squad once they had disembarked in battle.

 

Variants were produced for specialized purposes, including with anti-aircraft guns, light howitzers, anti-tank guns and mortars or even large unguided artillery rockets.

 

The C model, which started production in mid-1942, featured a simplified hexagonal-shaped forward armoured plate for the engine.  Models A through C had rear doors that bulged out.  The C model had a large production run, but was quite complex to build, involving many angled plates that gave reasonable protection from small arms fire.

 

This highly detailed plastic kit depicts an SdKfz 251 Ausf C version.  It comes with two machine gun choices; open or close rear access door, and a half open or fully closed canvas top (tarp) option.

280018 - SdKfz 251/D

The SdKfz 251 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251) half-track was an armored fighting vehicle designed and first built by the Hanomag Company during World War II.  Used by the Wehrmacht, the Sd.Kfz. 251 was designed to transport the panzergrenadiers of the German mechanized infantry corps into battle.  Sd.Kfz. 251s were the most widely produced German half-tracks of the war, with at least 15,252 vehicles and variants produced by various manufacturers, and were commonly referred to simply as “Hanomags” by both German and Allied soldiers.

There were four main model modifications (Ausführung A through D), which formed the basis for at least 22 variants.  The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a single squad of panzergrenadiers to the battlefield protected from enemy small arms fire, and with some protection from artillery fire.  In addition, the standard mounting of at least one MG34 or MG42 machine gun allowed the vehicle to provide support by fire for the infantry squad once they had disembarked in battle.

Variants were produced for specialized purposes, including with anti-aircraft guns, light howitzers, anti-tank guns and mortars or even large unguided artillery rockets.

From early 1943, the D model was developed with the purpose of halving the number of angled body plates, simplifying the design and thus speeding up the production.  D models can be easily recognized by their single piece sloping rear (with flat doors).

This highly detailed plastic kit depicts a SdKfz 251 Ausf D version.  It comes with two machine gun choices; and a half open or fully closed canvas top (tarp) option.
