Panzer II Flamm (Flamingo)
This is 1:56 scale model of the Panzer II (F) Flamm (Flamingo) (SdKfz 122) with commander figure. This model is intended for resin printing only.
To meet the requirement for a flamethrower tank prior to the invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, The PZ II Ausf. D chassis was chosen as the vehicle base due to its fast speed and good cross country performance. While good in theory, the Pz II Flamm’s light armor made it vulnerable to enemy fire and its volatile flamethrower fuel. The PZ II Flamm was pulled from service in 1942 and all remaining chassis converted into Marder II Ausf. Ds. The PZ II Flamm began production in the winter of 1940 and ran through March 1942.
