CHRIS CLIFFORD explores ICM’s recent 1/35 Krankenpanzerwagen armoured ambulance half-track.


As a theme, half-tracks offer heaps of fun due to their open-topped nature, whereby more detail can be seen. There are also many different variants to build. The fact is not lost on Ukraine’s ICM, which has reworked its 1/35 Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.A to provide a Krankenpanzerwagen (armoured ambulance) – the Sd.Kfz.251/8.

All weaponry was taken away, red cross symbols were applied externally and a water canister was installed on top of the transmission housing.
