Dragon is reprising a 1/35 scale kit of the German schwerer Panzerspahwagen as a Premium Edition offering. The specific vehicle type is an Sd.Kfz.234/1. This 8-wheeled reconnaissance vehicle had a 2cm KwK38 L/55 cannon and an MG42 machine gun mounted in a hexagonal turret. A total of 200 vehicles were produced between June 1944 and January 1945.

Dragon's 1/35 scale kit Sd.Kfz.234/1 has been upgraded to contemporary standards as a Premium Edition kit. One of the chief improvements is the addition of three wheels that assemble with sandwich-type construction. These multiple-part wheels ensure maximum detail. Another advantage of this new Premium Edition kit is that the driveshafts and tie rods are constructed in such a way as to allow all eight wheels to be depicted in any steering direction that the modeler chooses. At the same time, the original photo-etched parts for the anti-grenade screens on the turret are supplied. Now that the Sd.Kfz.234/1 has received a stunning makeover, modelers will be able to embrace the comeback of this German 8x8 armored vehicle after such a long drought.
