Griffon Model 1/35 SdKfz 7/2 radiator armor






Dragon Kit


Scott Van Aken

Now this is a really simple and effective etched brass upgrade set from our friends at Griffon Model. Often, the flak carrying SdKfz 7 half-tracks would have a section of armor built to cover the radiator. This prevented it from being punctured by strafing planes or ground troops and making the vehicle immobile. Griffon has provided two different versions. One is for the vehicle with the wooden side panels in the back and the other is for the version with the mesh panels.

The set  comes with instructions on how to assemble and attach whichever version you choose to build. A folding tool would be quite handy. One thing for sure, having this included with your next project that requires it will really add to the overall look of things.
