Art.bezeichnung: 1:700 H.M.S. Type 42 Destroyer Batch 1-3

The Royal Navy built 14 separate guided-missile destroyers in its Type 42 class, and the type served from 1975 till 2013. Construction was actually separated into three batches. The first six destroyers in Batch 1 were commissioned from 1975-79. Batch 2 added four more destroyers from 1980-83, while the final third batch was also a quartet of ships commissioned from 1982-85. Each batch featured slight modifications. The Type 42’s operational peak was during the Falklands War of 1982, where seven destroyers deployed to the South Atlantic to help recapture the islands from Argentina. However, two of them – first-of-class HMS Sheffield, and the fourth vessel HMS Coventry – were hit and sunk by an Exocet air-to-surface missile and an iron bomb respectively. Another destroyer, HMS Glasgow, was also disabled by an unexploded bomb that passed through the aft engine room.

Dragon’s latest 1/700 scale ship model represents the entire class of Royal Navy Type 42 destroyers. Indeed, it can be described as a 3-in-1 kit since either of the three production batches can be built. Ship modelers can examine each of the batch types in turn, and then build whichever one catches their fancy. Furthermore, a range of Cartograf decals allows model-makers to also select which vessel within the class they want to depict. In addition to the wonderfully well-engineered plastic parts, there’s an upgraded set of photo-etched components that elevate this kit to a whole new level of finesse. This 3-in-1 1/700 destroyer kit is superbly specified to give the modeler the widest range of options possible.

Art.bezeichnung: 1:35 Sd.Kfz.181 Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf.E TigerI

Dragon has a fantastic new 1/35 scale kit representing a mighty German Tiger I tank. This kit carries the title of Gruppe Fehrmann, and the plastic model represents Tigers from this rather interesting ad hoc unit that was formed towards the end of WWII. Indeed, at that time Germany was being squeezed from both east and west by the Soviets and Allies respectively, and Wehrmacht units were being disbanded and re-forged regularly. One such provisional unit formed in early 1945 was Gruppe Fehrmann, named after Oberleutnant Fehrmann who led a formation of six Tiger Is and five Panthers. These tanks bore an "F" prefix to denote their unit, and they were numbered from F01 to F13. This unit fought against the Allies in the area of the Ruhr Pocket on the Western Front and, in various engagements, the German tanks were knocked out or broke down one by one.


This new 1/35 scale kit allows modelers to produce a Tiger I specific to Gruppe Fehrmann. The kit makes use of tried-and-true parts from previous Tiger I releases from Dragon, which is entirely apt considering the ad hoc nature of the unit and of the half dozen Tiger I tanks used by it. Thus, the Tigers reflected a mix of early and late features in an eclectic hybrid kind of tank, such as an Early-Production turret and a Late-Production chassis/hull. Straight from the box, this highly detailed Tiger I from Gruppe Fehrmann is ready to foray into combat and to defend home soil against the Allies.

Art.bezeichnung: 1:35 StuG.III Ausf.F/8 Early Production

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!

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!
