Tippco Military Truck No. 217 with detachable anti-aircraft gun No.240

In 30s,Tippco, German toy company, mainly produced war and propaganda toys and grew to become the largest manufacturer of tin toys in Nuremberg. The Tippco military half-truck model No. 217 with clockwork and 9 soldiers represents Sd.Kfz. 7 - a half-track military vehicle used by the German Wehrmacht Heer, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS during the Second World War.Sd.Kfz. 7 was intended to be used mainly as the tractor for the 8.8 cm Flak gun and the 15 cm sFH 18 150 mm howitzer. Elastolin and Lineol also produced their own (and more advanced) versions of the Sd.Kfz. 7 truck in 1/24. The Tippco Sd.Kfz. 7 clockwork model is made in 1/32. Tippco didn't produce own composition soldiers and supplied its toys with crews produced by Leyla and Froha.My photos shows the Tippco half-truck with detachable anti-aircraft gun No.240 (the 8.8 cm Flak gun) that can be used for amorces.
