Tamiya 32534 1/48 scale 6x4 Truck Krupp Protze (Kfz.70).
Every characteristic of this truck, such as its low-profile bonnet, infantry carrier on rear and double wishbone suspension, has been realistically reproduced. Set also includes driver and infantry passenger figures to heighten realism and atmosphere. This vehicle was popularly known as the "Boxer" because it had an air-cooled flat-four square engine. This, in turn, allowed a flat sloping engine cover of a quite unmistakable shape which also gave excellent forward visibility and a low silhouette. The Krupp "Boxer" was quite ubiquitous in the application and the chassis carried bodywork for a considerable number of different roles. Aside from its air-cooled engine, the "Boxer" also had an independent suspension system, differing from the conventional springing systems of other six-wheelers in German service. Die-cast under panel adds weight and realism. Separately molded suspension spring for extra realism. Includes accessories such as Jerry cans, rifles and jack. Comes with 8 figures, including driver and passengers. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one plastic model kit. The set requires both glue and paint in order to be completed. Paints and glue are not included. For modelers aged 14 and older
