Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The adoption of blitzkrieg tactics in the German Army prior to the start of World War II meant that Germany needed a new kind of fighting vehicle to transport troops around the battlefield in support of the Panzer spearheads. It was in response to this requirement that the armored halftrack was developed during the mid-1930s. The SdKfz 251 halftrack soon became one of the most numerous vehicles in German service during World War II, with over 15,000 produced. This title provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to build some of the most popular SdKfz 251 variants in both 1/72 and 1/35 scale. It also includes camouflage paint schemes and markings.

Synopsis:

Expert advice on how to get the most from your modelling. Each book is a complete guide to building, detailing, converting and customizing all kinds of models. Illustrated with step-by-step color photography throughout. One of the most abundant vehicles in Germany's World War 2 arsenal, the SdKfz 251 half-track was developed in response to the blitzkrieg requirement for a tank able to transport troops to support the Panzer spearheads on the battlefields. Serving on every front from Russia to France, the SdKfz 251 appeared in a range of theatres and camouflage schemes that makes it an appealing challenge for modellers of all abilities--written by Robert Oehler, consultant editor of the Osprey Modelling series, this is the first volume ever dedicated to modelling the SdKfz 251.
