This kit is a collaboration of Tamiya and Italeri. Most of the vehicle is a reissue of an Italeri kit, with new parts supplied by Tamiya. The kit goes together nicely, with good detail, and is a fun model to build. The kit includes 3 figures and many diorama accessories.
The German Horch Kfz.15, a 4WD transport vehicle that was equipped with a liquid-cooled 8-cylinder engine capable of producing 85hp. Production of the vehicle began in 1937, and it saw action with the German military in a wide range of combat zones from Russia to North Africa. This particular kit has marking options for two dark yellow North Africa versions and one German gray version used in Russia.
Vehicle parts on sprues A & B are from Italeri’s earlier kit, which is about 20 years old. New parts by Tamiya include a folded roof, cargo area surface, rear-view mirror, taillights, tires, and front window. Tamiya also provides three figures, weapons set, and many diorama accessories.
