RUBICON MODELS 280047 1/56 SdKfz 305/3a Expansion Set – Box Body (Einheitskoffer
One of the variants of the SdKfz 305 Opel Blitz and the SdKfz 3a Maultier was the box body (Einheitskoffer). The design of the Einheitskoffer was identical for all trucks in terms of dimensions, position and number of windows, doors and stowage boxes, and was made of plywood and hard-fibre panels. This design approach offered a wide variety of potential usage. It was used for a number of roles including workshop, laundry, laboratory, command, communication, cipher office, ambulance, kitchen and many other purposes.
This approach created many small differences in details, including the superstructure frame, telescopic antenna mast, stowage space, stowage boxes, internal lighting, and additional tools. Worth mentioning, the Luftwaffe alone introduced no less than 137 variants under the designation Kfz 305.
