The Aufklarungspanzer 38(t) (designation Sd.Kfz.140/1) was a reconnaissance vehicle based on a 38(t) tank fitted with a "Hangelafette" turret (20 mm KwK 38 L/55 gun and a coaxial MG 42 - adapted from the Sd. Kfz. 222 armoured car); a support version armed with a 75 mm KwK 37 L/24 (and MG 42) gun mounted in the modified superstructure was also designed. Seventy Aufklarungspanzer 38(t) with a 20 mm gun were built in February and March 1944; just two Aufklarungspanzer 38(t) with a 75 mm gun were built in 1944.
- Front of the upper hull has been reworked with the most accurate details available,
- Magic Tracks have been added for greater ease of assembly.
- There are interior details inside the fighting compartment, and the kit mates Dragon’s 2cm turret masterpiece with the chassis of the Czech 38(t) in this extremely smart combination.
- The mesh screens of the turret top are realistically recreated in photo-etched metal too.
