The 7.1-tonne Maultier, introduced from 1942 onwards, was largely successful although they weren't quite as mobile as purpose-built halftracks. Production of some 4,000 vehicles ceased in 1943 in favour of the RSO tractor.The Kit Contents Dragon/Cyber-Hobby has already released two versions of the Maultier halftrack.
In total there eight new sprues...although some of them are admittedly small. There's a brand new sprue 'L' which supplies the large parts that go together to make up the actual rear body, there are sprues 'P1' to supply new driver's cab steps and various parts at the base of the cab to allow the rear body to fit properly, and 'P2', to supply the cabinets that fit inside the ambulance body, and sprue 'M' for the doors and roof amongst some other parts.They're identical to the old ones...supplied on a new sprue as a result of the old sprue not being included in this version.Once the suspension components such as front leafsprings, axles and drive train parts are fitted to the slide-moulded chassis, the suspension bogies for the tracked part of the vehicle can be constructed.Previously, only experienced modelers could have attempted to scratch-build such an extensive ambulance conversion, but now Dragon has made this type available to all!For the modeler who wishes to depict a realistic Eastern Front winter scene, this Maultier Ambulance offers something different. Kfz.3 Maultier Ambulance Manufacturer: Dragon Models Scale: 1/35 Material: Styrene & Etched Brass Serial Number: 6766 Price: TBA Dragon: The famous semi-tracked Maultier, whose name means 'mule' had its origins dating from 1941 when German troops fighting on the Eastern Front quickly bogged down in the treacherously muddy conditions at the start and close of wintertime.The interior thus includes an elaborate rack for up to nine stretchers, and this rack can be fabricated in a configuration that suits the modeler’s requirements.
Indeed, the detailed exterior and interior of the rear body offer unlimited potential to modelers.
The rear ambulance body is completely new, including a delicate access ladder on the rear, as well as side doors and an associated footstep.
The rear door opens to reveal a completely outfitted ambulance interior, one that has been carefully recreated with details as accurate as possible using wartime photos as a reference.
Both cab doors are separate parts, with detail inside and out, including separate handles, and even window winders.
The rack and spare wheel for the cab roof, both of which are shown on the boxart, are supplied, yet the full load of Jerry cans in the rack..on the boxart..not. Construction then moves to the rear body, and the ambulance section.
Wheeled trucks couldn't handle the tough conditions, so the decision was made to obtain half-tracked trucks that could negotiate the mud.
