DML Sdkfz. 234/2 Puma   Leave a comment

The Sdkfz. 234/2 was was one in a line of 8-rad recon armored fighting vehicles used by the Germans in WWII.  They featured independent steering and both front and rear driving stations for speedy getaways.

Dragon Limited Models made a fantastic line of 234s in 1/35 (standard military scale).  The 234/2 is named the ‘Puma’, and features an enclosed turret with a light cannon.  The DML kit features a modest interior that is missing some features (such as ammunition storage racks and the battery) because there was no record of the ‘real’ interior of the vehicle.  I added the battery based on conjecture and photos of the rest of the 234 series, but the ammo storage is pretty much a mystery.  The kit does feature both the front and rear driving positions, which are pretty neat.  I also added some gear to the interior to give it a ‘lived in’ feel.
