Art.-Nr.: 500777510

Art.Nr.: 500777510
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 Churchill Mk. III, Dieppe 1942

The Churchill infantry tank is a most distinctive design with its extremely long chassis and wraparound tracks. Named after the British Minister of Defence of the time, the Churchill tank was very well armored. It was produced in a series of versions that offered heavier armor and more powerful armament as the war progressed. The Mk.III, weighing in at 39,626kg, arrived on the scene in March 1942. It featured a 6-pounder gun in the all-welded turret, and the hull-mounted howitzer fitted in previous variants was deleted. The Churchill Mk.III was famously involved in the failed landing at Dieppe in northern France on 19 August 1942. The raid landed more than 3,600, mostly Canadian, soldiers, of which 60% were killed, wounded or captured.

Dragon is issuing a 1/72 scale kit representing a Churchill Mk.III of the type that went ashore at Dieppe. To create this variant, many new components such as a complete upper hull have been newly tooled. A very obvious addition is the extended exhaust pipes for deep wading, with these aiding tanks disembarking from landing craft on Dieppe’s beach. The Churchill Mk.III is beautifully detailed, and it assembles quickly and easily into an accurate model thanks to time-saving elements like one-piece DS tracks and single-piece bogies. These early-type tracks are brand new. This is not just a rehashed Churchill Mk.III kit, for it offers modelers something quite unique with its multiple new parts.

1:72 Panzerfähre Gepanzerte TEN

Art.-Nr.: 500777490

Art.Nr.: 500777490
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 Panzerfähre Gepanzerte TEN

Last year Dragon released a stunning 1/72 scale plastic kit of Panzerfähre Prototype Nr.I, and it justly received international recognition by winning the "MODELL FAN" award in 2012. That kit is now being joined by another identically scaled model, this time depicting Prototype Nr.II. It’s destined to be just as hot! The Panzerfähre (abbreviated to ‘PzF’) was an amphibious tractor conveniently based on the chassis of a Panzer IV Ausf.F tank. Development of the Panzerfähre began in early 1941, and by mid-1942 Magirus had delivered two prototypes. The lightly armored, fully tracked vehicle had a boat-like bow and a propeller at the stern. The amphibian’s main function was combat supply on land and in water. It could tow an amphibious trailer, or alternatively it could work in tandem with another Panzerfähre as a floating ferry platform capable of carrying a 24-ton load. However, because heavier tanks were appearing on the scene, the PzF never went into production because of its inadequate payload.


The new 1/72 scale kit makes clever use of parts from Dragon’s Panzer IV models – for example, the wheels, suspension and tracks. Many aspects are obviously shared with the earlier PzF Nr.I kit, with changes inserted where necessary for the later vehicle. Details such as hull rivets are delicately rendered, while slide molds are widely used to improve the quality of molding. Modelers will thus find that it assembles easily. The kit includes the craft itself but not the ferry pontoon. The finished item is a spectacular vehicle, and the smaller scale allows space for modelers to place it in a suitable diorama showing a river or riverbank.

1:72 Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.N w/Schürzen Ten

Art.-Nr.: 500777407

Art.Nr.: 500777407
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 PZ.KPFW.III Ausf. N w/Schürzen Ten

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!

Art.Nr.: 500777386
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 PZ. KPFW. III Ausf. N DAK

Die letzte Produktionsvariante des mittleren Panzers III war die Ausf.N. Dieser Typ verließ die Produktion im Juni 1942, doch war der Pz.Kpfw.III zu der Zeit den feindlichen Panzern bereits deutlich unterlegen. Seine Aufgabe wurde deshalb auf die Unterstützung der Infanterie herabgestuft, weshalb er mit einer kurzen 7,5 cm KwK 37 L/24 Kanone niedriger Geschwindigkeit ausgerüstet wurde. Bis zur endgültigen Produktionseinstellung im August 1943 wurden insgesamt 663 neue Panzer III N gebaut und weitere 37 auf Basis der Modelle Ausf.J/L/M umgerüstet. Der Pz.Kpfw.III N wurde in der Regel den Tiger-Bataillonen zugeordnet, weshalb einige nach Nordafrika verlegt wurden, um dort das Deutsche Afrikakorps (DAK) zu unterstützen. Die Expeditionskräfte des DAK unter ihrem berühmten Befehlshaber Erwin Rommel führten einen mutigen Kampf in Nordafrika, bis ihre Restbestände schließlich im Mai 1943 zur Aufgabe gezwungen waren.
Dragon ist stolz, in seiner Armor Pro Reihe erstmals einen Bausatz des mittleren Panzer III im Maßstab 1:72 auf den Markt zu bringen. Dieser Bausatz bietet dem Modellbauer speziell die Möglichkeit, einen Panzer III Ausf.N bauen zu können, der mit dem DAK in Nordafrika kämpfte. Als erstes der neuen Familie verwendet dieses Modell absolut neue Spritzformen, die in Technik und Technologie an die Smart Kits im Maßstab 1:35 anschließen. Die einteilige Oberwanne ist in Slide-Mold-Technik gefertigt, ebenso die sehr präzise Unterwanne. Der Turm basiert auf einer multidirektionalen Slide Mold, und die Luken können je nach Wunsch offen oder geschlossen dargestellt werden. Das gesamte Laufwerk - einschließlich Kettenräder, Laufrollen und Leiträder - ist absolut neu. Außerdem werden passende Fotoätzteile wie z. B. ein Netz für das Deflektorgitter angeboten. Dieser DAK-Bausatz ist ein überaus gelungenes Debüt für Dragons Panzer III Familie im Maßstab 1/72!

Art.Nr.: 500777385
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.

When it released its first 1/35 Tiger I kit, Dragon created a milestone because of its extreme degree of detail, multimedia components and engineering excellence. This same level of detail is available in 1/72 scale, and the newest small-scale edition of the Tiger I is an Initial Production tank of s.Pz.Abt.502. This heavy tank battalion is distinguished by the fact that it was the first to deploy the new Tiger I tank in combat. Formed in August 1942, s.Pz.Abt.502 arrived at the Leningrad front and it was soon using its Tiger tanks in battle. Dragon’s new kit allows modelers to produce the specific vehicles that was operational in the Leningrad region in February 1943 – a Tiger I with tactical number "3".

This new release of the Tiger I Initial Production tank assures model-makers of user-friendly assembly and enhanced detail and quality. It sees the introduction of newly tooled parts like brand new stowage bin. Even the tiniest details - for example, a reversed pistol port on tank is carefully reproduced. For modelers wishing to recreate a specific tank from this historically important tank battalion, this 1/72 scale kit will prove indispensable.

1:72 PZ.Kpfw.IV Ausf. F2 (G)

Art.-Nr.: 500777359

Art.Nr.: 500777359
Art.bezeichnung: 1:72 PZ.KPFW.IV Ausf. F2(G)

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!

Art.bezeichnung: 1:72 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf. F1

"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!

Art.Nr.: 500777290
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 Pz.KPFW.III Ausf.M w/wading muffler

Dragon is able to offer 1/35 scale versions of all major variants within the popular Panzer III family, and now the 1/72 scale family is also being expanded. The latest 1/72 plastic model is the Panzer III Ausf.M. This tank version succeeded the Ausf.L, and it shared the same 5cm KwK39 L/60 main gun. Among its modifications was a deep-wading muffler with a series of associated hatch seals that allowed fording of water obstacles up to a depth of 1.3m. This performance represented a significant fording improvement over earlier Panzer IIIs. The hull-mounted smoke generators were also replaced with three 90mm NbK dischargers mounted either side of the turret. A total of 250 new Ausf.M tanks were produced from October 1942 to February 1943.

Inside the box bearing the Dragon logo lie all the necessary ingredients to create a spectacular Panzer III M with its deep-wading exhaust system. Benefiting from the precision achieved with the larger 1/35 scale version of the Panzer III M, the kit’s extremely well engineered and the parts separation is cleverly handled by the engineering team. In addition to the obviously new exhaust and muffler system, there are DS tracks and a set of photo-etched parts. Cartograf has produced an excellent set of slide decals with different tactical markings so that modelers can select an appropriate unit. This stunning 1/72 plastic kit offers a perfect balance of accuracy and ease of assembly - the perfect project for modelers to wade into!

1:72 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G Early Production

Art.-Nr.: 500777278

Art.Nr.: 500777278
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:72 Pz. IV Ausf. G

Although the Pz.Kpfw. IV was initially designed as an infantry-support medium tank, it was soon up-armored and up-gunned so it could take over the Panzer III’s primary tank-fighting role. The Panzer IV eventually became the most common German tank of WWII, with more than 9000 produced from 1939 to 1945. This gave it the distinction of being the only German tank to remain in continuous production throughout the war. Obviously there were a number of different variants introduced during its lifetime, with one of these being the Ausf. G. A total of 1687 of this version were built in 1942-1943.

Modelers have been eagerly anticipating the release of Dragon’s 1/72 scale Panzer IV Ausf.G kit since the first short-barreled Ausf.F was launched a while ago. The Ausf.G kit has a long-barreled 7.5cm KwK40 L/43 gun, made as a single piece by slide mold, so the kit has a distinctive appearance. However, the kit’s designers have ensured the Ausf.G inherited the accuracy and ease of assembly of the earlier kit. This is reflected in items like one-piece DS tracks and a one-piece lower hull. Besides these important characteristics, it comes with a brand new turret, engine deck, fenders, mantlet, grenade launchers and headlights. The larger 1/35 scale Ausf.G was a roaring success amongst the modeling fraternity, and the smaller scale 1/72 Ausf.G should be no different. Not only that, but the kit has benefited from the level of amazing detail found on its 1/35 counterpart. Because the Pz.Kpfw. IV G was used in every theater of Germany’s war, including important battles like those in Kharkov, it is versatile enough to fit into any setting selected by the modeler.

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

1:35 German Super-Heavy Self-Prop.Mortar

Art.-Nr.: 500776946

Art.Nr.: 500776946
Art.bezeichnung: 1:35 German Super-Heavy Self-Prop.Mortar

Germany manufactured some huge war machines in WWII, and few were more impressive than the six super-heavy Mörser self-propelled howitzers that were manufactured by Rheinmetall-Borsig in 1940-41. Weighing in at 124 tons and measuring 11.37m long, these siege mortars were fitted with either a 54cm- or 60cm-diameter short-barreled barrel. These weapons were known as the Gerät 041 and Gerät 040 respectively, and they were engaged in such operations as the invasion of the Soviet Union, the Battle for Sevastopol and the Warsaw Uprising. Now Dragon is offering, for the first time, a 4-in-1 kit of this fearsome weapon.
Why is it labeled a 4-in-1 release? Well, both the 54cm and 60cm versions are available, with the correct mortar barrels provided for both types. Furthermore, the chassis of the weapon is available in a lowered version for firing mode, and a higher one configured for transportation. Thus, modelers have any of four options when choosing to build their Mörser self-propelled howitzer. To cap it all off, Dragon also offers a bonus set of German crewmen to operate the weapon, each figure specially designed to fit the Mörser as he goes his business around the artillery piece. The original self-propelled siege mortar was huge, and Dragon’s totally versatile 1/35 scale kit makes the options as wide as possible too.

1:35 Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.K

Art.-Nr.: 500776903

Art.Nr.: 500776903
Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.K

Dragon has a new variant of the Panzer III in its 1/35 scale series of kits. This item is a Panzer III Ausf.K, a tank type that didn’t actually make it all the way into series production. The Ausf.K was basically to be a Panzer III Ausf.J chassis combined with a Panzer IV Ausf.F2 turret that mounted a KwK.40 75mm gun. After receiving orders to prepare such a tank design, Krupp had completed sets of drawings by 27 December 1941. However, such a vehicle faced serious problems in terms of the Panzer III being able to cope with the extra weight, new suspension, new tracks and a changed center of gravity. By March 1942, Krupp had been instructed to drop the project and to keep arming the Panzer III with a 50mm gun instead.

Dragon’s 1/35 scale kit of the Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.K is a smart combination of subassemblies from previous top-quality kits. Thus, it mates a turret from a Panzer IV Ausf.F2 to a Panzer III chassis and hull. Also included in the kit is the upper hull plate from Dragon’s latest Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.K command tank, which would have allowed a larger turret to be fitted on this tank. Although this ultimately remained a "paper panzer", the Pz.Kpfw.III K is a unique-looking and well-armed tank. Modelers seeking something a little different from a run-of-the-mill Panzer III will therefore find this kit rather appealing!

Dragon launched a 1/35 kit of a Panzerbefehlswagen III Ausf.H (Item No. 6844) last year, and while it was lapped up by modelers, there was also clamor for a Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) version of the same vehicle. Dragon has now obliged by creating a special DAK configuration of the Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.H! This specialized command tank containing long-range radios was created based on a standard Ausf.H gun tank, the first Panzer III version to be fitted with a 5cm KwK L/42 cannon. However, on the Pz.Bef.Wg. version there was no 5cm gun fitted, with just a single MG34 for self-defense and a dummy gun to fool the enemy.

Dragon’s new 1/35 scale DAK kit is different to the preceding Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.H kit in some noticeable ways. For example, it bears a large storage box on the engine deck, plus a smaller storage box on the front left of the fender. Another modification is a spare-track rack on the glacis plate. The sprockets and idler wheels are also different to that on the predecessor. And unchanged, is the characteristic large frame antenna for the long-range radio. Plus the vehicle looks most impressive when the turret-mounted telescopic antenna is shown extended. This Panzerbefehlswagen III H nicely complements lately-reproduced DAK items in Dragon’s line-up, including: Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf.A Early Production (Item No. 6289), Pz.Kpfw.III (5cm) Ausf.H Late Production (6642), Bison II 15cm s.IG.33 (6440), Kübelwagen Workshop w/DAK Troops (6338). With the arrival of this command tank, modelers now have even more options for creating a North African diorama.

Dragon is offering a fine 1/35 scale kit of the Sd.Kfz.250/9 Ausf.A le.S.P.W. (2cm) as a complement to its formidable Sd.Kfz.250 family lineup. The le.S.P.W. was a reconnaissance halftrack fitted with a 2cm KwK 38 cannon and a coaxial machine gun in an open-topped turret. The original Ausf.A halftrack featured the same turret as the Sd.Kfz.222 armored car, while the newer Ausf.B adopted a different Hängelafette 38 turret. Several Sd.Kfz.250/9 halftracks were sent to the Russian Front in July 1942 for evaluations, with mass production commencing later. Indeed, the type proved successful and this halftrack variant came to succeed the Sd.Kfz.222 thanks to superior cross-country mobility.

To create this variant, there are a number of brand new parts. These include a newly tooled turret – the complex shape had no less than ten armored faces – to accommodate the 2cm cannon and machine gun, plus the new photo-etched mesh for the turret top. This particular turret has no vision blocks. The FuG 12 radio and turret basket are also new for this item. Although the turret may be small, it’s very complicated, yet it has been faithfully recreated in this kit. To fit the turret, the upper-hull plate was extensively modified as well. As part of Dragon’s facelifted Sd.Kfz.250 series, Dragon’s famous Magic Tracks are available. The Sd.Kfz.250/9 was a small vehicle, but this effective reconnaissance vehicle is now ready to commence patrols on modelers’ dioramas!

Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 IJA Type 97 Medium Tank "Chi-Ha"

Dragon has previously released superb 1/35 scale plastic kits of Japanese armored and amphibious vehicles from WWII, including the Type 2 Ka-Mi, Type 95 Ha-Go and Type 4 Ke-Nu, but the time has finally come to unveil what was the most important tank type! It is the Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank as used by the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA). The Type 97 was Japan’s most widely produced medium tank of WWII. Boasting a 57mm main gun and two Type 97 machine guns, this tank was intended to serve as an up-scaled version of the Type 95 for infantry support. A total of 2,123 tanks were produced from 1938-43, most of which had the low-velocity 57mm gun. The Chi-Ha was used in combat in Manchuria and China, as well as in fighting against the Allies.

The new 1/35 scale model specifically depicts an Early-Production variant of the Type 97 medium tank, possibly the most well-known Japanese tank of WWII. The kit was thoroughly researched by a Japanese design team, based on investigations and measurements of several surviving tanks. This level of research ensures that it will be undeniably the most accurate and precise Chi-Ha available on the market. The engine deck layout, toolbox, shovel, rear-plate brackets and distinctive flaps on the engine deck are all correctly depicted for an early-production tank. The kit resorts widely to slide molds so that fewer parts are needed. Naturally, this leads to a perfect balance of easy assembly and accuracy, which is what Smart Kits are all about! This Japanese tank kit allows modelers of 1/35 scale AFVs to field a tank widely used by the Japanese throughout the Asia-Pacific theater.

Art.Nr.: 500776848
Art.bezeichnung: 1:35 Kingtiger Porsche Turret w/Zimmerit

Entering production in mid-1944, the Kingtiger weighed 69.8 tons and was armed with a highly lethal 8.8cm KwK 43 L/71 gun. Fifty Kingtigers featured the so-called Porsche turret rather than the more common Henschel turret. Both turret types were manufactured by Krupp, but the Porsche turret was much more rounded in shape. All tanks with such a Porsche turret were coated in the German anti-magnetic paste known as Zimmerit. Dragon is now offering an exciting 1/35 scale plastic kit of such a Kingtiger with Porsche turret and replete with Zimmerit.

This is a 2-in-1 kit because the tank comes with something special in the box. That special addition is a three-legged crane that can be installed on the turret, and which was used for such tasks as removing the engine or transmission. The chains for the pulleys of the jib crane are made from photo-etched metal for maximum realism. Thus, modelers can depict this tank as ready for combat, or as undergoing maintenance. Of course, the hull and turret have finely crafted Zimmerit already pre-molded on, meaning that modelers don’t need to engage in the long and messy process of applying the sculpted layer with putty. No one does Zimmerit better than Dragon, with the texture realistically crafted to scale. This 2-in-1 Kingtiger kit will have viewers craning their necks in fascination!

1:35 Jagdpanzer IV A-O

Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 Jagdpanzer IV A-O

Germany based its Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer on the chassis of the ubiquitous and reliable Panzer IV tank. The vehicle mounted a lethal 75mm main gun in a fixed superstructure or casemate. The low-profile vehicle was actually designed as a replacement for the successful StuG.III, and it was built in three variants, the first of which was the 0-series, essentially a Jagdpanzer IV pre-production version. The 0-series is easily identified by the rounded front corners of the superstructure, a feature that was dropped for production and ballistic reasons once manufacture began. It mounted a 7.5cm PaK39 gun, plus ports for two 7.92mm machine guns in the glacis plate. The first 0-series vehicle was produced in January 1944.

This Dragon 1/35 scale rendition of a Jagdpanzer IV A-0 is well engineered and carefully crafted to accurately recreate the original pre-production vehicle. Indeed, it has no connection with old item No.9059 that Dragon released ages ago. This is a brand new kit that employs parts such as the chassis and road wheels from Dragon’s current generation of exemplary Panzer IV kits, combined with easy-to-assemble tracks made from DS. Furthermore, the superstructure and roof are brand new. It has the correct superstructure with distinctive rounded corners that makes it stand out from production Jagdpanzer IVs, while the 75mm PaK39 gun is fitted with a muzzle brake. In fact, Dragon has made the 1/35 kit even more attractive by offering two different options in the box. These options allow either of two different vehicle configurations to be created as modelers wish.

Art.bezeichnung: 1:35 Bergepanther m.Pz.Kpfw.IV Turm

The Panther was one of the most important tanks used by Germany during WWII. It was also converted into an armored recovery vehicle known as the Bergepanther. The Bergepanther was actually transformed into one other unusual vehicle when a Panzer IV Ausf.H turret was added to an early Bergepanther hull to create a command tank. This was a one-off conversion performed by the heavy tank destroyer battalion s.Pz.Abt.653, and the resulting vehicle was called the Bergepanther mit Aufgesetztem Pz.Kpfw.IV Turm Als Befehlpanzer. It had a fixed turret and dummy gun, with the extra space inside the turret used for radios and map boards. The vehicle was used in the Ukraine on the Eastern Front in 1944 alongside the battalion’s Elefant tank destroyers.

Dragon has created a 1/35 scale kit of the phenomenally named Bergepanther mit Aufgesetztem Pz.Kpfw.IV Turm Als Befehlpanzer. As one would expect, the kit utilizes principal components from previously issued Panther and Panzer IV kits. These have extremely high standards, so the main parts come with a fine pedigree. Customers can thus look forward to an accurate, easy-to-build kit thanks to Dragon’s smart engineering processes. For example, the track links are made from DS plastic for simple assembly, plus there a number of photo-etched parts such as the engine deck grills. This unique command tank from s.Pz.Abt.653 does have a most distinctive look, so modelers can now expand their 1/35 scale Panther (or should that be Panzer IV?) families.

Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 Sd.Kfz. 143 Pz. Beob. WG. III

The Panzer III was a medium-weight tank that, at the outbreak of WWII, was designed to be the primary platform of the all-conquering panzer divisions. However, with the advent of more heavily armored and up-gunned enemy tanks, the role of the Panzer III became secondary to that of the Panzer IV and production finally ceased in 1943. A number of specialized variants were created based on standard gun tanks, and one of these was the Panzerbeobachtungswagen III (Sd.Kfz.143). This was a dedicated forward artillery observation tank for Wespe and Hummel artillery batteries. From February 1942 to April 1944, some 262 examples were converted from Ausf.E/F/G hulls. The Pz.Beob.Wg.III featured a dummy main armament and an MG34 machine gun mounted in a Kugelblende (ball mount) in the turret. A crew of five operated the vehicle and it contained powerful radio equipment.

Dragon’s new 1/35 scale Smart Kit accurately depicts this special Panzerbeobachtungswagen III observation tank. It contains a number of new parts, including the revised gun shield (mounting the MG ball mount and dummy gun), and additional armor on the hull front (photo-etched parts) with new associated brackets. The rear hull plate is new too, as is the dummy gun. The new observation periscope on turret top, through which observers spotted artillery fire, is accurately depicted too. This kit allows modelers to fill another gap in the Panzer III family tree with a kit built to Dragon’s highest contemporary standards. Modelers will want to keep a sharp lookout for this Pz.Beob.Wg.III on their model shop shelves!

Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 3.7cm FLAK 43 Flakpanzer IV Ostwind

With Allied aircraft increasingly dominating the skies over Europe as WWII progressed, there was a need for more effective self-propelled antiaircraft guns. One solution was the Flakpanzer IV/3.7cm Flak, a vehicle nicknamed Ostwind, or "East Wind" by the Germans. In August 1944 an order was placed for 100 Ostwind vehicles, with this vehicle featuring a more capable 3.7cm FlaK43 cannon mounted inside a hexagonal turret. The turret was open-topped to allow fumes to dissipate. The turret rotated 360º, and the quick-firing gun could be used with equal devastation against both air and ground targets. A crew of six operated the 25-tonne Ostwind, and a total of 43 such weapons were produced mostly on rebuilt Panzer IV tank chassis.

Dragon has produced a fantastic 1/35 scale plastic kit of the Flakpanzer IV Ostwind. Owing to the turret being open-topped, all the relevant details on the gun and inside the turret are well represented. The cannon is particularly well defined and the barrel can be posed in any one of several different angles depending on whether the modeler has an aerial or ground target in view. The hull also carries a readymade Zimmerit coating that is masterfully represented. Inside the box, modelers will find many slide-molded plastic components. This latest kit from Dragon allows modelers to create the Flakpanzer IV Ostwind that was used by Flugabwehrzug (antiaircraft platoons) to protect units from marauding aircraft late in the war.

Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 Gebirgsjägers Crete 1941

Operation Mercury, the Battle of Crete, was joined on 20 May 1941 when German airborne troops parachuted onto the Mediterranean island. The bloody battle lasted eleven days, but at last it resulted in the German capture of the Allied-controlled island. Crete had offered valuable harbors for the Royal Navy and airfields for RAF bombers, so its loss was keenly felt. What is perhaps not so well known is that German Gebirgsjäger (mountain troops) played a significant part in the operation alongside their airborne brethren. The 5th Gebirgs-Division had a force of 15,000 men in three infantry regiments (85th, 100th and 141st) and an artillery regiment (95th), and it was inserted by air and sea as a follow-up force. This task was made easier by the capture of Maleme airfield on the second day of the battle. The Gebirgsjäger were ideal for the task as they had light weapons, were easily moved by air, and could handle the mountainous terrain of Crete.

Dragon’s latest 1/35 scale figure set features four Gebirgsjäger soldiers from the Battle of Crete. The plastic German soldiers are sharply molded and their uniforms and personal equipment are accurately depicted. To suit them for summer combat in the Mediterranean, they are all wearing cotton shorts instead of their usual battledress. These shorts give the soldiers a unique appearance. On their heads are distinctive caps with the edelweiss emblem, while their feet are shod in typical mountain boots. They carry a complement of light weapons such as Kar98k rifles and an MP40 submachine gun. The poses of these Gebirgsjäger are lifelike, with two taking a brief rest from combat, while another two prepare to move further over the rough terrain. These versatile German figures from Dragon are ideal for a Crete scene, or even for some other warm-weather battle elsewhere.

You can't afford to miss it!

Hauptsturmführer Michael Wittmann was one of Germany’s highest-scoring tank aces of WWII, with the credited destruction of 138 tanks and 132 anti-tank guns. He cut his teeth on the Eastern Front with a StuG.III, and latterly he took command of a Tiger I in time for combat during Operation Citadel at Kursk in July 1943. Dragon has created a magnificent representation of Wittmann’s Tiger I (turret number ‘S04’) with 88 kill marks on barrel. Dragon’s kit appropriately portrays an Early-Production variant, and it forms the important and much-anticipated last piece of Dragon’s exemplary Tiger I family.

This awesome plastic kit made precisely to 1/35 scale shows Wittmann’s Tiger I with 88 kill marks on the lethal 8.8cm gun barrel. These painted barrel rings illustrated the power of the Tiger I as well as the skill of tank ace Wittmann. This brand new kit stems from thorough research and it’s thus accurately designed to represent Wittmann’s ‘S04’ mount. To ensure the absolute highest levels of quality, the majority of components in this special release, like turret, upper hull, engine deck, rear panel, road wheels, spare tracks and etc, are newly tooled and engineered to achieve the engineering level of a Smart Kit, and to provide the unique appearance of this famous Tiger. Morever, a full set of Michael Wittmann's crew is included in first production run as a BONUS!

Art.Nr.: 500776695 Artikelbezeichnung: 1:35 German Wehrmacht BIVOUAC

There’s a saying – ‘The army sleeps under the stars, the navy navigates by the stars, and the navy chooses its hotels by the number of stars!" This newest 1/35 scale figure set well and truly represents the former. The box contains three German Wehrmacht anti-tank crewmen along with a temporary bivouac they’ve set up in the field. This is such a typical scene on any battlefield, but no kit manufacturer has bothered to represent it thus far. Such a shelter could be swiftly created by erecting a triangular M1931 pattern Zeltbahn (‘shelter quarter’). The Zeltbahn was a very handy and crucial item of kit, as it could also be used as a rain cape, emergency stretcher, flotation device, or combined together to form a complete tent. The kit includes such a beautifully detailed Zeltbahn in which a soldier can rest.

The three soldiers are sharply sculpted in casual poses as they await the war to reach them. Appropriately, they’re in various states of casual dress. One is wearing a woolen pullover while the other two are in shirts and braces. Various accessories such as a haversack and a range of personal gear are valuable for a diorama scene, though the 7.5cm leIG18 light infantry gun shown on the box-top isn’t included in the set. This domestic scene, especially with the erected M1931 Zeltbahn shelter, fills a gap in the range of plastic figures currently available on the market. While it would best suit an early-war scene, the figures are versatile enough to be mixed and matched to fit multiple scenarios planned by the modeler.

Dragon has already introduced later variants of the RSO to the modeling fraternity in 1/35 scale, but now comes the most common version of this German prime mover. The acronym RSO stands for Raupenschlepper Ost, which translates as "Caterpillar Tractor East". The terrible muddy and icy conditions experienced on the Eastern Front convinced Germany of the need for a highly mobile, tracked vehicle. Steyr proposed the RSO and it immediately became a popular vehicle thanks to its mobility and reliability. In all, about 23,000 RSO vehicles were produced by a range of manufacturers. The original version had a pressed-steel cab and a typical truck-style cargo bed at the rear. It was powered by a Steyr 85hp V8 engine that offered a top speed of 30km/h.

Art.Nr.: 500776653
Art.bezeichnung: 1:35 Allied Force ETO 1944

Operation Overlord was the Allied master plan to wrest Europe from the clutches of Germany. More than three million Allied troops were put ashore at Normandy from 6 June 1944 onwards. A slow, grinding battle ensued for the next two months as American, British and Canadian troops established their bridgehead against strong opposition. When the breakout from Normandy finally came, it was spectacular in its speed. By September there were three Allied army groups fighting against German forces, and General Patton was racing his forces across France to the very border of Germany. The last obstacle was the Rhine River, and this was crossed in March 1945, meaning war in the European Theater of Operations (ETO) was almost over.

Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale figure set features four soldiers from the ETO in 1944. Befitting the transatlantic nature of the alliance, there are three US GIs and one Royal Marine Commando in the set. Each figure is sharply sculpted in a realistic pose, and they are versatile enough to fit any number of scenarios. They obviously depict European combat in 1944, and the British and American soldiers can be deployed individually or even combined as a complete set. They carry weapons suitable for the period, as well as all pertinent uniform and personal equipment items. These figures are ideal for a Normandy scene, or indeed for the later race across France, and the set forms a useful addition to figure and diorama modelers.
