The Dragon German Sd.Kfz.261 Kleine Panzerfunkwagen Model Kit in 1/72 scale from the plastic military model kits range accurately recreates the real life German light armoured reconnaissance vehicle with telescopic radio antenna.

This Dragon armoured car model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Dragon plastic models range.

For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.

We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.

Dragon has been constantly expanding its popular 1/72 scale range of model Leichter Panzerspähwagen light reconnaissance vehicles. An Sd.Kfz.260 was released a short time ago, and now Dragon is offering yet another interesting variant. This time it is an Sd.Kfz.261. The Sd.Kfz.260 and 261 were similar in that they were both designed for signals units, with a total of 493 produced from November 1940 through till April 1943. They were designed specifically as armored (but unarmed) radio communication vehicles. The Sd.Kfz.261 was fitted with a FuG.12 long-range radio set connected to a frame antenna and also a telescopic antenna. In due course the Sd.Kfz.260/261 family was replaced by halftrack radio vehicles.

Dragon’s 1/72 scale model makes use of the newly tooled Sd.Kfz.260. It has brand new parts such as the frame antenna and the exquisitely produced telescopic antenna mounted on the left side of the hull. These radio components provide the Sd.Kfz.261 with a unique silhouette and cause it to really stand out from other members of the Leichter Panzerspähwagen family. The hull-top opening is made of plastic, this material being much easier to work with than photo-etched parts. After painting in appropriate colors, modelers can apply Cartograf high-quality decals to finish off their distinctive-looking Sd.Kfz.261!

    I thoroughly enjoyed building this one. The subject matter is great, it shouts diorama at you. As we have come to expect from Dragon, the kit is well-produced, well-detailed and with parts and stowage left for the spares box.
