Over the years, the unarmoured German half-track vehicles have always been one of the focal points of the Nuts & Bolts series. 
Dr. Nicolaus Hettler had already dealt with every single type of these vehicles with one exception and with issue no. 45 he closes the last gap, the Sd.Kfz. 10, the 1-ton tractor. In addition to the well-known versions as towing vehicle and as self-propelled gun carriage with Pak and Flak, he also presents further developments by the Adler company, which were ultimately no longer built in the series. 

Nuts & Bolts #45 is presented in dual German & English texts in a softcover, A4 portrait format that encloses 449 photos - (of these, 290 historic photos (a number of them previously unpublished), 131 colour photos of the surviving vehicles in public and private collections. 
As usual in the Nuts & bolts series, the vehicles are presented with technical and colour drawings, as well as with historical photos and photographs of restored vehicles from private ownership.
There is also 16 coloured camouflage schemes and 69 scale drawings of different variants of this versatile vehicle.
For the modellers especially there are 28 colour photos of five models of the German forces from noted modellers.
The publishers are sure that there will be something for every interested reader on the 240 pages.
