Model Description

Hobbymaster 1/72nd scale HG5006 Sd. Kfz. 7 German 8 Ton Half Truck WL-427172, WWII winter. Available to pre-order at Flying Tigers.

The concept for the Sd.Kfz. 7 dates back to 1934 when the need for this type of vehicle was realized. It wasn’t until 1938 before the first vehicle actually left the factory. The vehicle had theater-type bench seats capable of carrying up to 12 men. There was stowage room at the rear for ammunition for the large guns it usually towed. These vehicles required a lot of maintenance and were prone to tracks breaking. The on road speed wasn’t very good but it off-road abilities made up for it.

Hermann Goring wanted to be part of the land victories as well so he created an elite Luftwaffe armored division called the Fallschirm-Panzer-Division 1. Hermann Göring. As German bomber activity became less viable the crews were assigned to ground units. At the beginning of WWII it was a flak unit that steadily grew to include armored vehicles. The Sd.Kfz.7 was largely used to haul the heavy 8.8 cm Flak gun and up to 12 gun crew. This vehicle was under the command of the Luftwaffe Luftgaukommando IV (Drezden).
