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!

Art.bezeichnung: 1:72 He219A-0 UHU / He219A-7 OWL (2in1)

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!

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!

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

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.

1:72 WWII Dt.Tra.-LKW Krupp Protze m.PaK

Art.-Nr.: 500777377

Article number: 500777377
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!

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!
