Kfz.18 Horch 4◊4 Type 1a Persnnel Carrier, Dragon 7378, 1:72 Scale Two Models
The Schwere Einheits PKW A.U. Horch is a 4◊4 heavy car†produced by Auto Union and Horch from 1938 onwards, and it served in all theaters of WWII. The original Type 1a had four-wheel steering, while the later Type 1b produced from 1940 onwards had regular front-wheel steering. This vehicle possessed four-wheel drive, but production ceased in 1941 as part of German efforts to standardize production. The personnel carrier was powered by a V8 Horch engine of 3.823-litre capacity.
†As the first Horch vehicle in the 1/72 kit set range, Dragonís model naturally makes use of 100% new toolings. The open-topped body (which contains three bench seats able to accommodate five passengers and the driver) is made as a single slide-molded piece in order to simplify construction and ensure perfect alignment. So as to produce an incredible level of detail, the floor plate and its tread pattern is made of photo-etched metal. There is also an MG34 machine gun provided on a pintle mount for antiaircraft duties. The kit beautifully captures the look and stance of this Horch 4◊4 heavy car. When modelers realize there are two, not just one, models inside the box, the kit becomes even more compelling!
