SD Kfz184 Ferdinand & 16t Strabokran. Scale 1:35
AMU35A030 - Amusing Model
From Amusing Hobby comes a 2-in-1 kit of the Ferdinand Jagdpanzer Sd.Kfz. 184 and 16t Strabokran.
The characteristic feature of the JagdPanther Ferdinand was that it was generated by two gasoline engines and driven by an electric motor. By using a motor as the driving unit, no transmission was required. In the past, this vehicle was said to have a lot of breakdowns for this reason, but some recent documents have reported that there were fewer breakdowns than some vehicles equipped with transmissions. On the Eastern Front, the Ferdinand's appearance had a great impact.
Strabokrans are gate-type mobile cranes used by German field maintenance teams during tank maintenance and repairs. About 100 units were manufactured and used in German armored divisions and heavy tank battalions.
The Model Kit
The Ferdinand's interior layout can be enjoyed even after completion thanks to the included transparent parts. The kit recreates the precise details of the Strabokran, and it can assembled in its working state.
The kit includes photo etched brass parts as well as clear sections to allow view of the tank interiors. The Ferdinand has working tracks and the suspension can be posed to match a diorama's terrain. Mouldings come in various colours to suit their position. All parts included to complete the full interior include motors.
The box is enormous with a second standard size box within the outer box containing the Strabokran, measuring 395mm x 265mm x 195mm and is chock a block with sprues and parts.
Glue and paint are required to complete this model (not included).
