Dragon has turned its attention to the 1/72 Warbirds range for its next 2-in-1 kit releases. First up is the Luftwaffe’s Heinkel He219, which was known as the Uhu (Eagle-Owl), an advanced German night-fighter that flew in the latter half of WWII. Either of two variants is possible: an He219A-0 or He219A-7. The former was initially a pre-production aircraft, but it ended up as the first main production variant. A total of 104 were built from 1943 through till the end of November 1944. The later He219A-7 model was the final production version of the Uhu. Typical armament on the A-7 was four 20mm MG151/20 cannons plus two 30mm MK 108 cannons. Production of 210 units of the A-7 was supposed to start in later 1944, but actual numbers finished are uncertain.

The capable radar-equipped He219 had an enviable reputation as a "Mosquito-killer", but production was never sufficient to have a significant impact on the air war. It has been some time since either of these 1/72 He219 has been available individually. But now Dragon has created a useful 2-in-1 box that allows modelers to flexibly choose later on which variant to build. All the necessary to parts to assemble the exact variant is included. Furthermore, the complex radar array of antennas on the nose is reproduced with the help of photo-etched parts. This accurate 2-1in-1 model set is ready to take to the air and to own the night!

New releases keep on coming in Dragon’s 1/35 scale Neo Smart Kit range. The most recent subject is a StuG.III F/8 in its Early-Production variant. The StuG III Ausf.F was fitted with a longer-barreled 7.5cm gun. This marked its first true emergence as a tank destroyer rather than as a mere infantry support vehicle. Whereas the first Ausf.F vehicles featured a 7.5cm StuK 40 L/43 gun, a more potent L/48 gun was also introduced on a chassis similar to that of the Panzer III. Ausf.J and L. These new tank destroyers were called the F/8, since it was the eighth version of the StuG.III. Some 334 of these F/8s were produced from September-December 1942.

This fantastic 1/35 scale kit builds on the highest-quality parts already available in Dragon’s StuG.III kit series. Naturally, a prominent feature of Dragon’s Neo range is the remarkable Neo Smart Tracks, which include pre-molded lengths of track to make life much easier for the modeler, as well as individual links that allow appropriate sagging effects. For these first-edition kits, each vehicle features bonus interior parts such as the transmission and fighting compartment, which makes them especially attractive. This is a splendid Neo kit, and with the StuG.III F/8 Early-Production vehicle used on all different frontlines, including the titanic Battle of Kursk, modelers have almost infinite creative options available to them!

Considering the fact that the Panzer III was a product of the 1930s, this German medium tank did well to serve so long in WWII. It was obviously supplanted by the Panzer IV and later the Panther in the tank-versus-tank role, but it did find a niche in the infantry support role. This is most clearly expressed in the final Pz.Kpfw.III variant to enter service – the Ausf.N, of which 700 were manufactured or converted. The Panzer III N entered service in June 1942 and production continued until August 1943. Key characteristics of the Ausf.N were its basis on the Ausf.J or M chassis, and the fitting of a short-barreled 7.5cm KwK37 L/24 gun. Ironically, this was the weapon fitted to older Panzer IV A-F1 tanks. Thus equipped, the Panzer III N was used in the close-support role in Tiger battalions or Panzergrenadier divisions.

Dragon’s Armor Pro series is releasing its second 1/72 scale kit of the Panzer III Ausf.N. The first item to be available (No.7386) was a vehicle serving with the Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) in North Africa, and since this new kit is based upon that successful release, it can be expected to assemble easily and accurately. Amongst the many features of this latest kit is a full set of turret and hull Schürzen – 5mm-thick armored skirts that were fitted to original vehicles from March 1943 onwards to protect against enemy anti-tank weapons. On this kit, the hull and turret Schürzen and associated support brackets involve brand new toolings. This is an exciting new 1/72 kit of an important Panzer III variant – an ideal vehicle to accompany a Tiger tank into battle!

Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.L Late Production

Der Panzer III war ein mittelgroßer Panzer, der bei Ausbruch des Zweiten Weltkriegs als die wichtigste Plattform der alles bezwingenden Panzerdivisionen konzipiert war. Doch mit dem Auftritt von stärker gepanzerten und besser bewaffneten feindlichen Panzern musste der Panzer III gegenüber dem Panzer IV zurücktreten und die Produktion wurde schließlich im Jahr 1943 eingestellt. Eines der späteren Modelle war der Panzer III Ausf.L, der mit einer längeren und kampfstärkeren 5-cm-Kanone des Typs KwK 39 L/60 ausgerüstet war. Auch die Panzerung dieses Modells war dicker ausgelegt und verfügte über eine zusätzliche 20 mm dicke Schicht an Turm und Wannenfront. Insgesamt wurden im Jahr 1942 in deutschen Fabriken 653 Panzer der Ausf.L gebaut.

Dieser neue Bausatz bietet dem Modellbauer die besondere Gelegenheit, eine späte Variante des Panzer III Ausf.L zu bauen. Auch neue Spritzformen kommen zum Einsatz, z. B. die langläufige Kanone. In Technik und Technologie hat das Modell das größere 1:35 Smart Kit zum Vorbild, einschließlich vollständiger Detaillierung und Einfachheit im Zusammenbau. Die einteilige Oberwanne ist in Slide-Mold-Technik gefertigt, ebenso die sehr präzise Unterwanne, die beide gestochen scharfe Details aufweisen. Der Turm basiert auf einer multidirektionalen Slide Mold, und die Luken können je nach Wunsch offen oder geschlossen dargestellt werden. Außerdem werden passende Fotoätzteile wie z. B. ein Netz für das Deflektorgitter angeboten.

Product: 1/72 WWII Ger.Truck Krupp Protze w/PaK

Dragon has come up with a fantastic new German soft-skin vehicle! Appearing in 1/72 scale for the first time from Dragon comes a Kfz.70 Personnel Carrier. This popular truck design served throughout WWII after mass production commenced in 1933. A total of about 7,000 trucks were produced up till 1942. This 6x4 vehicle was powered by an air-cooled 3.308-liter flat-four engine. The horizontal engine gave rise to the truck’s distinctive sharply sloped nose, and also to its nickname "Boxer". The truck was used for all kinds of purposes, and was commonly employed for towing light artillery such as the 3.7cm Pak 35/36 antitank cannon.

Everything is newly tooled on this delightful truck model. The parts separation on Dragon’s Kfz.70 is smartly done, allowing full detail to be reproduced both above and below the chassis. The wheels and independent coil spring suspension are masterfully represented. The raking hood is produced in one piece with the front fenders to simplify construction and to increase accurate assembly. The front windshield is made from transparent plastic to allow more realism. To make the model even more appealing and valuable, the kit comes with a 3.7cm PaK 36/37 antitank cannon. Modelers can thus portray the truck towing this gun, even though it remains a Kfz.70 version. This 6x4 truck was a workhorse of the German military during WWII, and Dragon has come up with an equally robust and versatile model to populate dioramas or to cart German soldiers around the battlefield!

Dragons berühmter 1:35 Tiger I Erste Produktion, Art.-Nr. 6252, war ein Meilenstein. Bei seiner Herausgabe war er hinsichtlich der Qualität und der Vollständigkeit von Modellbausätzen aus Kunststoff ein riesiger Sprung nach vorne. In der Tat hat dieser Tiger I einen Meilenstein gesetzt, dem alle qualitativ hochwertigen AFV-Modelle noch nacheifern. Der Bausatz porträtiert einen Panzer der s.Pz.Abt.502, einer Einheit, die im August 1942 eingerichtet wurde, und direkt an der Front in der Nähe von Leningrad zum Einsatz kam. Sie war die erste Tiger I-Einheit, die in das Kriegsgeschehen eingriff. Sie kämpfte bis Kriegsende tapfer an der Ostfront.

Zur Freude zahlreicher Modellbauer wurde dieser bemerkenswerte und sehr begehrte 1:35 Bausatz nun in Form von Art.Nr. 7370 auf den Maßstab 1:72 verkleinert. Zum Glück sind keinerlei Einzelheiten des großen Bruders verloren gegangen. Dieser Bausatz verfügt über die genauen Details des Fahrzeugs Nr. 100 der s.Pz.Abt.502, der Panzer-Einheit „Mammut". Dieser besondere Panzer aus der ersten Produktion kämpfte an der Leningrad-Front, bevor er von den Sowjets erbeutet wurde. Diese bemerkenswerte Kriegstrophäe wurde weithin von seinen fröhlichen Eroberern fotografiert. Dragons neuer Bausatz in diesem kleineren Format ist bemerkenswert detailgenau und besteht weitestgehend aus schiebergeformten Komponenten, um diese Detailgenauigkeit zu erzielen. Der Tiger I ist ein legendärer Panzer, und Tank Nr. 100 ist darunter eine eigene Legende. Modellbauer erhalten also zwei Legenden auf einmal!

The improved lethality of the long-barreled 7.5cm KwK40 gun of the Pz.IV Ausf.F2 and Ausf.G was greatly welcomed by German tankers during WWII. The Panzer IV G was supposed to be the first tank installed with the 7.5cm KwK40 L/43 gun in 1942. However, the Wehrmacht needed to urgently counteract the thicker armor of Russian T-34 and KV-1 tanks, so this gun was also fitted to some Ausf.F tanks (where it was known as the F2). A total of 175 F2 tanks were produced from March to July 1942 (with a further 25 converted from F1), while 1687 Ausf.G tanks were manufactured.

Dragon has already released a beautifully crafted 1/35 scale kit of such a Panzer IV Ausf.F2(G), and now it has been reproduced in 1/72 scale. Although the model itself might have been scaled down, there is no corresponding diminution in detail! It builds upon the intensive research and engineering done by the expert design team for the 1/35 kit. This new release has extremely well-detailed parts thanks to the clever employment of slide molds. The gun barrel is slide molded along with the muzzle brake and both fenders are brand new. Accurate markings for tanks operating in diverse theaters such as the Eastern Front, France and Tunisia are supplied in the form of decals created by Cartograf. Impressively easy to assemble thanks to clever mold design, and full of detail, this Panzer IV Ausf.F2(G) is destined to follow in the tracks of its 1/35 scale brother and thus enjoy instant popularity!

"Dragon has now released well over 100 models in its popular 1/72 scale AFV series. As if this wasn’t a milestone enough, Dragon is now pleased to announce a groundbreaking release. For the first time ever, Dragon has created a 1/72 scale Panzer IV tank! Building upon Dragon’s extensive experience and expertise in 1/35 scale Panzer IV kits, the first release is a Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.F1.

The Panzer IV (Sd.Kfz.161) formed the mainstay of German panzer divisions, and it holds the distinction of being the only German tank to remain in production throughout the course of WWII. This tank, numerically the most common with 8500 produced, underwent a series of improvements to improve its armament and armor protection. The Ausf. F1 was manufactured from April 1941 to March 1942. Armed with a short-barreled 75mm KwK37 L/24 gun, a total of more than 450 were produced, although a number were later converted to F2 status. Other unique distinguishing features were a new turret design (with thicker armor, and two-piece side doors), plus new drive sprockets and idler wheels to accommodate wider 400mm tracks.


Dragon’s new model accurately reflects all these key personality traits, and indeed, the model is completely new except for the road wheels! It has benefited tremendously from technical know-how and research conducted in creating its 1/35 scale brothers. Dragon is thus justifiably proud of this new Panzer IV kit, which is undoubtedly the best available on the market in terms of accuracy, detail and proportions. For those small-scale modelers interested in early Panzers, this kit will be an instant hit!

Cyber-Hobby is releasing another ship kit, this time of USS New York (LPD-21), the fifth San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock vessel to be built. The highly detailed kit is made in 1/700 scale. This kit’s being launched to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as the original ship has a close connection to that tragic day ten years ago. USS New York was partially constructed from 6.8 tons of steel salvaged from the rubble of the World Trade Centre in New York, and it was specifically named in memory of victims of the September 11 attack. Constructed by Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, this LPD can carry up to 700 Marines as well as LCAC hovercraft and MV-22B Osprey aircraft. USS New York was commissioned into the US Navy on November 7, 2009.

USS New York is a brand new tooling from Cyber-Hobby. The model comes with two hulls that allow either a waterline or full-hull version to be built. There is widespread use of slide-mold technology in the creation of this plastic ship, which results in a model that’s easy to assemble but yet one that doesn’t lack any essential detail. The hull is slide molded as a single component, and parts are cleverly separated to ensure maximum detail. The main superstructure, for example, is a single piece. An assortment of photo-etched parts includes items like the safety net around the landing deck. Cyber-Hobby also supplies helicopters, an LCAC hovercraft and even MV-22 Ospreys to populate the 1/700 scale replica. With a ship model that’s a breeze to assemble, USS New York is ready to take on terrorist or state enemies anywhere!

USS Longbeach (CGN 9) is a unique ship, principally because it was the only vessel in her class. And what US Navy class was she in? The Longbeach was a nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser commissioned on September 9 1961. It also had the distinction of being the USA’s first all-new cruiser design since WWII, and since cruisers since then have generally been based simply on up-scaled destroyer hulls, her crew aptly described her as "The Only Real Cruiser." USS Longbeach had a pair of 5-inch 38-calibre guns mounted amidships, and at the time of her decommissioning in July 1994, the upgraded cruiser had two Standard Missile launchers, two Tomahawk
