[About the actual vehicle]
--The Bison II is a self-propelled artillery for fire support that produced only 12 cars from 1941 to 1942 during World War II.
――It was developed to increase mobility by mounting the 15 cm heavy infantry gun s.IG33 with high reliability and power on the vehicle and making it a self-propelled gun.
――The 15cm heavy infantry gun is fixed to the chassis by removing the wheels of the mount in order to lower the center of gravity and mount it.
――The body to be mounted is based on Panzer II, and its components have been used to develop a body that has been extended and expanded in overall length and width in order to secure space for mounting guns and shells.
――Because the body is extended, the number of wheels has also been increased from 5 on each side of Panzer II to 6 on each side.
--In addition, the engine has been changed from an in-line 6-cylinder engine to a V-type 8-cylinder engine to ensure mobility due to the increased weight.
――The power is as high as 15 horsepower.
――All 12 cars produced will be put on the North African Campaign.
――We fought hard against the British, but all the vehicles were lost in each battle on the North African Campaign or captured by the British.
[About the model]
-A plastic model assembly kit that reproduces Bison II, a self-propelled gun equipped with a 15 cm heavy infantry gun in an open top battle room, on a 1/35 scale.
――This kit uses a prefabricated magic track that allows you to enjoy a realistic finish on the tracks.
-The lower part of the car body is an integrated part using a slide mold, and details such as the panel on the underside of the car body are firmly reproduced.
--Of course, the wheels and suspension arms, which are one more on one side than the Panzer II, are accurately modeled.
-Suspension arms are separate parts one by one. You can enjoy a three-dimensional finish.
――The open-top battle room is modeled with various equipment such as communication equipment, shells, MP40, etc., including the central 15 cm heavy infantry gun, and the finish is attractive with a tightly packed sense of density.
-In addition, in-vehicle tools and jerrycan racks are set not only inside the battle room but also on the outside of the armor plate. It makes the unique style stand out even more.
--The driver's hatch and engine grill hatch are reproduced as separate parts, and can be assembled by selecting opening and closing. The range of scene production will also expand.
――It is one that becomes more attractive with a magic track.
