The Sd.Kfz.232 accommodated extra radio equipment and a large frame antenna for longer-distance communication. It featured a hexagonal-shaped turret mounting a 2cm KwK 30 cannon plus one MG34 machine gun. Production of the Sd.Kfz.232 ceased in 1943 in favor of the newer Sd.Kfz.234/2 Puma.
The large armored car is composed of many irregularly shaped and angled plates, so the kit obviously requires extremely precise tolerances when it fits together. Thanks to the use of CAD drawings and high-tech molding techniques, the kit's parts fit together flawlessly. The unique shape of this 8x8 armored vehicle is beautifully captured, and the distinctive antenna frame is finely rendered. The upper and lower hull sections are made as one-piece lements via slide molds. Dragon already has an enriched line-up of 1/72 scale Panzers kits available, so the inclusion of the Sd.Kfz.232 now gives these early-war panzers a valuable reconnaissance capability!
