A New German Halftrack Trundles Out Of Plastic Soldier Company

Plastic Soldier Company bolster the fighting potential of the Germans in World War II with a new Halftrack model, the SdKfz 251/C. See what you think of it complete with crew and stowage…

These vehicles were integral to the German war effort and it wouldn’t be surprising to see these popping up in many German armies. The fact that they were decently armoured, had machine guns for mobile fire support, and could also push forwards with troops made them a reliable addition to the army.

Model-wise this kit is a 20mm one in plastic, as you might have guessed from the sprue above! It comes with seven crew and all the stowage options that it would have had back in the day.

One thing I’ve been interested in when looking at World War II is the extent to which crews would personalise their vehicles. Was it a big thing for them to do?

Let me know in the comments!
