January Grand Finale
NEW ON MODELEXPO
Out-stretching even the 1/35 U.S. 40 Ton Tank Transporter Dragon Wagon (Item 35230), this kit is impressive in both size and intricacy of detail. Tamiya invites you to enjoy both mammoth vehicles and compare how WWII Germany and the U.S. tackled the pressing need of tank recovery and repair! The trailer of the Tank Transporter Sd.Ah.116 was suspended between two bogies, the rear of which was equipped with a separate steering mechanism. This model offers a great insight into the construction and operation of German's giant beast-of-burden. After the impressive debut of the FAMO kit, Tamiya began to receive many requests for variations. Among the several types of FAMO to appear during WWII, the most frequently requested was the Sd.Ah.116 trailer-towing version. ?Stretching over 640mm, Tamiya's new beast-of-burden is 50mm longer than the Dragon Wagon and is the longest kit in the MM series. ?The massive trailer unit consists of both the front and the rear wheeled pieces on either ends of the long platform piece. ?Real rubber tires for heightened realism. ?This kit features ample metal and metal plated parts for various accessory pieces such as a chain for fixing the tank in tow to the platform. ?This kit brings back the eight figures of four poses included in the original "FAMO" kit, plus four all-new figures of three poses acting out a tank loading scene at the rear of the trailer. Vehicle for loading is not included in kit.
