In 1938, the German Army decided to develop an armoured personnel carrier on the basis of the 3-ton half track (HL-KL-9p). Hanomag Hannoversch Machinenbau (AG) in Hannover was ordered to develop the running gear and Bussing-NAG in Berlin was to develop the superstructure to be armoured. Design work was hastened on the model of existing armoured cars and a prototype was completed at the end of 1938. The Germans tested the prototype in the Kumahsdorf Proving Ground and accepted it for mass production. Thus was born the Armoured Personnel Carrier Hanomag Sdkfz 251/1 which, we may safely say, was a synonym for the German mechanized corps that showed activity in all battlefields throughout the war.

Great Model
By gohawksblake February 26, 2013
This is an amazing kit. I had almost no problems with the construction, and the figures are pretty good. It includes a good, detailed interior and markings for two different fronts: Russian and North African. I would reccomend it to beginners, but advanced modellers can easily create an impressive halftrack.

Tamiya and Italeri Teamed Up
By johncpo41 July 19, 2013
The original Hanomag was the mainstay of German transport and modifications for many roles. I chose the first of the series for a diorama incorporating the Italeri Smoke Projector or infamous Nebelwerfer which was a very potent weapon used against the Allies. Crew served by Tamiya figures from the 75mm Anti Tank Gun set I was able to re-create a loading scene and the Hanomag as the vehicle to tow and supply the Nebelwerfer. As with the 251/9 and other 251 variants the tracks and road wheels go together quite well when you follow the sequence in the directions. This kit has been re-issued over time as far back as I can remember and along with over 50 military models finds its home.

By Al December 12, 2013
This German Armored car was an easy build and had authentic figures. It did need some tweaking to get some of the parts to fit but when completed fit right in with the rest of my German vehicles. Great for a beginner.

Cool model
By Brodericklj01 September 24, 2013
This was a really fun build for me. Even though it was cool, it does have its drawbacks. The machine gun on the back is really difficult to mount and the antennas kept breaking. I suggest painting the seats a tan color.

WWII Armor Main Stay
By james.minkler November 17, 2013
I think anyone building armor in the WWII arena is bound to come across one of these. This is a fun and relatively simple build all together, however there were some areas that I found to be lacking. First the front fenders and side skirts seemed to be a bit ill fitting. This could of been due to the tooling or maybe just a bad mold? The interior could of been done a bit better, maybe it is just due to the fact that it is not a highly technical model, but my investigation into this vehicle during the build showed some very cool features that I feel could have been easily incorporated in the kit. Don't get me wrong, it was a great and fun build. I just had higher hopes I guess. Maybe I will try again but this time invest into some of the large quantity of aftermarket items out there.
