"Terrific model from Tamiya"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As usual Tamiya has come up with the goods, the 6-wheeled SD.KFZ 231 is an excellent model, the parts are highly detailed and the whole kit is easy to assemble – what we have come to expect.


Tamiya 1/35 6-Wheeled SD.KFZ 231 – Model Kit

This model takes the classic Italeri model of the Sd.Kfz. 232 and transforms it into the frame antenna-less Sd.Kfz. 231, with new and updated parts from the Italian maker, plus Tamiya figure, metal gun barrel, decals and instruction manual, all packaged in a Tamiya box!

The 6-wheeled Sd.Kfz. armored cars were produced from the early 1930s as German forces rearmed and mechanized. Based on a civilian vehicle chassis, they utilized sloped armor and a 20mm cannon. Even though these vehicles were replaced by 8-wheeled counterparts during that time, they still saw action in Poland and France during WWII.


  • New separate parts are included to recreate the turret ground-to-air machine gun base plus hull front smoke dischargers.
  • Hull parts are updated, with new molding depicting weld lines
  • Molding has been improved to provide more secure parts fit.
  • Tamiya figure parts recreate crewman in relaxed pose
  • The included Tamiya metal gun barrel (originally in Item 35297) accurately captures the main gun.
  • 2 marking options (pre-WWII in Germany, and 1940 France) are provided with Tamiya decals.
  • Comes with Tamiya instruction manual and packaging
  • Vehicle parts are a product of Italeri.
