German Steyr Type 1500A/01

  1. Description

    Tanks may be the stars of the battlefield, but the "soft" vehicles supporting the front lines play an
    equally important role. With the release of the 1/48 MM Steyr Type 1500A/01, Tamiya gives
    modellers another interesting subject to add to their WWII armor and aircraft dioramas.
    Prior to the start of WWII, the German army used a variety of vehicles in preparation for their
    mobile Blitzkrieg tactics. However, the "Schell" Program of 1940 called for a standardization of
    vehicles for more efficient production, and one of the vehicles chosen for use was the Austrian
    Steyr 1500A/01. With its air-cooled 3.5 liter V8 engine and 4WD, the vehicle proved to be
    rugged and reliable, and was produced as a light truck, soft top infantry carrier, and staff car. It"s
    versatility made it a useful transport vehicle on all battle fronts.


    • 1/48 scale assembly kit model of the Steyr Type 1500A/01.
    • Distinctive shape of the engine hood and features such as the side mounted spare tire accurately
      reproduced.
    • Front doors may be modeled in both open and closed positions for increased display
      possibilities.
    • Die-cast chassis provides added weight that gives the model greater realism.
    • One driver figure included.
    • 3 types of high-quality markings are also included.
    • A great display in and of itself, it is also perfect for dioramas with other Tamiya 1/48MM vehicles,
      aircraft, figure sets, and accessory sets.
