This is a Dragon Models 1/35 scale assembly and painting required plastic model kit of the World War II era German Raupenschlepper Ost (literally "Caterpillar Tractor East" and abbreviated: RSO)/PaK 40, a 7.5 cm PaK 40/1 anti-tank gun mounted on top of a RSO chassis. Dragon has produced an exciting new 1/35 scale kit of this fascinating specialist vehicle. Apart from the 7.5cm antitank gun, the rest of the kit is brand new. Just like German engineers before them, Dragon was able to fit its existing gun kit onto a new platform! The chassis comes as a single component to ensure correct alignment and ease of assembly. The vehicle is actually quite small, but this doesn't mean it lacks detail. In fact, it is brimming with interior detail such as the gearbox, driver's compartment, engine and transmission. The gun platform is fully represented along with the new gun mount. The construction allows modelers to traverse the gun in any direction. The road wheels are produced to scale thickness, over which the specially designed RSO Magic Tracks are fixed. The result is a vehicle that looks remarkably different to a standard RSO cargo variant. It is sure to be a hot item, as modelers have been waiting a long time for such a high-quality kit of this potent "tractor"!
