German 1943 SdKfz 251/1 Ausf D Half Track.

SdKfz 251/1 Ausf DSdKfz 251/1 Ausf DThis is our replica SdKfz 251/1 Ausf D half track. It is a post war variant of the iconic WW2 half track which has been reverse engineered to look like it’s wartime counterpart.

These half track came in many variants. Ours is the standard troop carrying type 1. Capable of transporting 10 Panzer Grenadiers plus all of their campaign equipment. The half track is fitted with an MG34 in the front armoured screen and also has an MG 42 on the rear anti aircraft mount.

Although seen in many different colour schemes, we have finished our half track in the standard “Dankelgelb” yellow-brown colour as stipulated in 1943 for all vehicles leaving the manufacturing plants. Later, in the field and on campaign, individual units would apply their own camouflage to the base colour.

This example is in full working order and can be supplied with fully operational guns. Weighing in at 7.5 tons, it is a big but of kit which truly enhances any film set.
