My friend, COL Jim purchased a couple sets of the HaT German Ddkfz 251/1 halftracks when we visited Larry Pegasus the other day. There are two 1/72nd scale halftracks in this box.
As you can see from the illustration, the assembly is very straight forward.
The parts are flash free and there are not very many of them, just enough to make a good kit.
This thing would probably go together in about a hour of concentrated work. And kits this simple lend themselves to mass production. It even comes with both machine guns, not always the case with simple models.
The rear tracks are one piece assembly, as can bee seen here. A very good model.
