Pojazdy 1/35 — ’39-45′ Series
6781 — Panzerjäger I Ausf.B mit 7,5cm StuK 40 L/48 w/ Gun Crew — Smart Kit
As WWII progressed, Germany was forced to desperately cobble together whatever armored vehicles it could to get them onto the field of battle. One such vehicle was the Panzerjäger IB mit StuK 40 L/48, a tank hunter based on the chassis of the old Panzer I Ausf.B light tank and mounting a 7,5cm StuK 40 gun from a StuG tank destroyer. This vehicle is believed to be a one-off field conversion that appeared late in the war, with photographic evidence placing it in the vicinity of Berlin.
Dragon is now offering a 1/35 scale kit of such a Panzerjäger I Ausf.B mit StuK 40 L/48. The Panzerjäger I Ausf.B receives DS Tracks to make assembly a bit easier. Additionally, the vehicle has a full interior in fighting compartment. The ultra-slim small gun shield is made to accurate dimensions, and there is judicious provision of photo-etched metal parts to represent more delicate elements. Such a novel vehicle platform requires a unique model, and this 1/35 scale kit from Dragon allows the Panzer I to punch well above its weight class!
