SD KFZ 2 Kettenkrad History:
The Sd.Kfz.2 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 2), better known as the Kleines Kettenkraftrad HK 101 or Kettenkrad for short (plural Kettenkräder; where Ketten means “chains” or “tracks” and krad is the military abbreviation of the German word Kraftrad, the administrative German term for motorcycle), started its life as a light tractor for airborne troops. The vehicle was designed to be delivered by Junkers Ju 52 aircraft, though not by parachute. The vehicle had the advantage of being the only gun tractor small enough to fit inside the hold of the Ju 52, and was the lightest mass-produced German military vehicle to use the complex Schachtellaufwerk overlapped and interleaved road wheels used on almost all German military half-tracked vehicles of World War II.
Steering the Kettenkrad was accomplished by turning the handlebars: Up to a certain point, only the front wheel would steer the vehicle. A motion of the handlebars beyond that point would engage the track brakes to help make turns sharper. It was also possible to run the vehicle without the front wheel installed and this was recommended in extreme off-road conditions where speed would be kept low.

About Cobi Brick Sets:
Cobi brick sets are compatible with all other top quality brick brands. Cobi Bricks are made in Poland (European Union) and the sets are full of unique parts made just for adding realism to each set. These sets may require more attention to build due to the numerous parts and “layered” approach that Cobi Brick sets use. Cobi Brick sets come with super detailed and easy to use colored instructions.

Really neat addition to your Cobi collection whether for an Afrika Korps themed collection or just your general Cobi collection.

This set is so good that I bought two of them. It is very detailed for its size and a huge improvement from the old version. The build goes pretty fast for this one but its a lot of fun!

Purchased this to see what all the hubbub was about these Cobi kits. Have to admit it was fun build, but sadly the small tracks lack traction and it’s very difficult to get them to move easily.
