Trumpeter 1/35 German SdKfz 8 Gepanzerte 12-Ton Halftrack (New Tool)

During the production of the Sd.Kfz.8, DB 10 type, an armored body was designed & tested to protect the artillery tractor. The armor was 14.5mm thick AND had double doors at the rear of the hull, possibly for ammunition stowage. It is a rare variant and probably a prototype as only three photos of its use on the Eastern Front have been published. In the photographs, one can see that they were issued to the Luftwaffe and were used to tow 88mm Flak guns. One was found in a river at Pilica, in Poland, and restored. Kit consists of over 700 parts on 21 sprues plus upper & lower hulls, rubber tires, individual track links and photo-etched detail parts.
