According to Dragon Model’s web site, this model represents “a vehicle whose main function was combat supply on land and in water. It could tow an amphibious trailer, or alternatively it could work in tandem with another Panzerfahre as a floating ferry platform capable of carrying a 24-ton load.” However, other than the prototypes, no other vehicles were manufactured. Yet we get a lovely injection-molded kit of this weird vehicle!! The Golden Age of Modeling, indeed!
Thanks to the fact that this vehicle was basically a floating box, there aren’t many parts to it: just over 90, the largest by far being the upper and lower hull parts, D & Z. The majority of the remainder is for the Panzer IV-based road wheels, drive sprockets, and idler wheels, and the track return rollers. And speaking of track, there are two track pieces, one per side, and manufactured out of Dragon’s DS 100 “rubber” material. Detail on all the parts is very good for the scale, and there were no ejection pin marks or sink marks on any of the parts in my kit.
