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.

1:35 Allied Force Eto 1944

SKU: 500776653

Article number: 500776653
Product: 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.

1:35 Pz.IV Ausf.H w/Zimmerit Mid Prod.HJ

SKU: 500776611

Article number: 500776611 Product: 1:35 Pz.IV Ausf.H Mid Prod. w/Zimmerit

Dragon offers a complete lineup of the popular Panzer IV family tree in 1/35 scale. Now it is time to fill in a gap with this special variant! It’s an Ausf.H Mid-Production, and it specifically represents a vehicle fighting in Normandy in 1944. One unit to field the Panzer IV H was the 12th Panzer Hitlerjugend Division, with the formation’s combat debut occurring on 7 June 1944 as German forces began a ferocious defense of Caen in the Normandy area against Canadian and British units. It was one of the closest divisions to the landing beaches. When the German division eventually escaped the Falaise pocket, it had lost 42% of its personnel and 94% of its armor.

This 1/35 scale plastic kit features a number of newly tooled parts, one example being the turret side skirts that have their own layer of readymade Zimmerit. Also brand new is the frontal armor plate containing the steering-brake hatches. This too bears a coating of Zimmerit, which is beautifully sculpted and looks extremely authentic. The inclusion of Zimmerit on this kit is certainly a highlight, as it saves modelers from the time-consuming task of recreating the texture themselves. The box comes with a generous selection of Cartograf decals, all of which cover those panzer divisions operational in Normandy, including the Hitlerjugend and 2nd Panzer Divisions. For those model-makers recreating a scene from Normandy, this is the perfect foundation on which to base it!
 

1:35 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.H Late Production

SKU: 500776560

Article number: 500776560
Product: 1/35 PZ.KPFW.IV Ausf. H Late Production

The Panzer IV Ausf.H (Item No.6300) is a sought after model in Dragon’s range of 1/35 scale series of kits. This particular Ausf.H production variant began rolling off factory floors in April 1943, and it experienced some improvements over earlier Panzer IV medium tanks. For instance, the front glacis plate was strengthened by being represented as a single 80mm-thick plate. Another notable aspect is that the Ausf.H was covered in a proprietary paste to prevent magnetic mines from adhering to vertical steel armor surfaces of the tank. The hull sides were further protected by the addition of 5mm-thick side-skirts, while the turret received 8mm-thick skirts.

During the course of production, the Ausf.H began receiving cast steel return rollers, plus the hull side-skirt brackets were strengthened. The addition of all this extra steel saw the weight of the Ausf.H expand to 25 tonnes, with a corresponding decrease in performance. When the Allies landed in Normandy on 6 June 1944, approximately half of German tanks in that theater were Panzer IVs. Tanks such as the Panzer IV Ausf.H wreaked havoc on Allied tank units as they sought to force their way through the thick Normandy bocage.

Dragon’s newest 1/35 kit allows modelers to depict such a Late Production Ausf.H tank fighting in a location such as Normandy. What sets this kit apart from its predecessor is the inclusion of molded Zimmerit. The patterned surface is accurately and realistically rendered, which required the completely new tooling of major parts like the turret, glacis, upper hull, lower hull, rear panel and front/rear fenders. When assembled the tank looks very lifelike, and of course it cancels any need for modelers themselves to undertake the unpleasant and onerous task of adding Zimmerit with putty. Naturally, this kit retains all the accuracy and ease of assembly of the preceding 6300. However, an

Antiaircraft defense became very important with the advent of powerful air forces in WWII. Germany employed a number of antiaircraft platforms, with low-level air defense being taken care of by weapons such as the FlaK 30 (Flugabwehrkanone 30) and FlaK 38. The former entered service in 1935 while the latter replaced it in production in 1939. This family of 2cm FlaK weapons was the most widely produced German artillery pieces of the war. They were used not only against airc

About the T-34
The T-34 was a remarkable tank. Continuous production between 1941 and 1958 made it the second-most widely produced tank of all time. A total of 57,000+ T-34 tanks were manufactured up till the end of 1945. The T-34 formed the stee

1:35 Sd.Kfz.171 Panther G w/Zimmerit

SKU: 500776384

Article number: 500776384
Product: 1/35 SdKfz.171 Panther G w/ Zimmerit

Germany was stunned when highly effective T-34 tanks were first encountered on the Eastern Front, and its own Panzer III and IV tanks were simply outclassed. The Third Reich’s response was to design and produce the Pz.Kpfw.V, more commonly known as the Panther. Some regard the Panther as being the best tank of WWII, with an ideal balance of mobility, firepower and armor protection. Weighing 44.8 tonnes and operated by a crew of five, the Panther was armed with a long-barreled 7.5cm KwK 42 L/70 cannon. Various modifications were made to the Panther design throughout WWII, with the final and most numerous variant being the Ausf.G, of which 2953 were produced from March 1944 till the end of the war. New features on the Ausf.G included redesigned hull hatches, removal of the driver’s visor on the glacis, tapered one-piece upper hull side plates, and some later vehicles also had a new mantlet chin to eliminate the shot trap.

Dragon has launched a much-anticipated 1/35 scale kit of a Panther Ausf.G, with the unique aspect of this kit being the molded-on coating of zimmerit. Zimmerit was an antimagnetic paste applied to German armored vehicles between August 1943 and September 1944 to prevent enemy combatants from attaching magnetic mines. The zimmerit on this model is highly crafted with an authentic pattern and true-to-scale appearance. The inclusion of zimmerit required a completely new tooling of the turret, mantlet, upper hull and lower hull in order to replicate its characteristic pattern. The molded-on zimmerit means modelers are saved the ponderous and time-consuming chore of having to create this feature from scratch. Normally such a texture is only available in resin at a high cost…but zimmerit on this Panther comes at no extra charge! The rear stowage boxes made from DS are another exciting innovation on this kit, with these items showing realistic battle damage. This

1:35 Panzergrenadier, Italy 1943-45

SKU: 500776348

Article number: 500776348
Product: 1:35 Panzergrenadier, Italy 1943-45

The Allied invasion of Europe’s underbelly began on July 10 1943 with the invasion of Sicily. What followed was Operation Baytown, the British landing in the "toe" of Italy on September 3rd. The Italian government surrendered five days later, but German resolve and resistance stiffened. Though the Italian Campaign was always considered a secondary theater for the Allies, it still resulted in the deaths of 90,000 Allied and 110,000 German soldiers. Gritty defense by German soldiers in Italy’s rugged terrain led to such famous battles as Salerno, Anzio and Monte Cassino.

Dragon’s fine new set of German panzergrenadiers poignantly depicts four men involved in this protracted fighting. The 1/35 scale set will have broad appeal, the mix of uniforms and personal equipment allowing modelers to portray soldiers anywhere within the 1943-45 timeframe. They are wearing a wide variety of warm-weather uniforms commonly seen in Italy, including the cotton herringbone twill (HBT) uniform. This alone makes them very valuable to figure modelers, but they have other advantages too. Each figure is shown in a casual pose, perhaps reflecting their exhaustion from the constant fighting. One of the figures is resting his weary frame on a chair, the latter being delightfully crafted and included in the set. All figures come with an option of two heads so that either a cap or a steel helmet can be worn. It was soldiers such as these panzergrenadiers who managed to hold up the Allies in Italy until April 1945, and this new Dragon figure set captures their look beautifully.

Product: 1/35 Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) Ausf.G w/Interior

About the Pz.Kpfw. 38(t)
The Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) was a light tank manufactured in Czechoslovakia, and which continued in production after Germany annexed that nation. The final version of the Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) was the Ausf.G, which featured heavier armor up to 50mm thick on its frontal surfaces. Construction of the Ausf.G also utilized more welding, with a total of 321 tanks produced between October 1941 and June 1942. After this time production switched to hulls for self-propelled antitank guns. Most of these tanks served with the German army in Russia, though some also entered service with allies like Hungary, Rumania and Slovakia.


Dragon has launched a most impressive 1/35 scale kit of this Ausf.G variant. The most important feature is the inclusion of a full interior in both the fighting and engine compartments. The complete engine is fully detailed, accurately formed from multiple parts. Using advanced slide molds, the remarkable one-piece hull has full detail on both inner and outer surfaces. This kit is perfect for those modelers wishing to open the hatches or engine bay to display the amazing interior detail. This Dragon kit also provides a brand new upper hull and turret. Other parts (such as drive sprockets and suspension) that are common to the previously released Marder III Ausf.H kit have also been retooled or modified. Adding that extra touch of finesse is a large fret of photo-etched parts. The Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) Ausf.G is a stunning kit in its own right, but the full interior makes it irresistible!

1/35 Georgian Legion, Normandy 1944

This four piece figure set features soldiers from the Georgian Legion who have been taken by surprise in an assault. Their trench system and positions are overrun, and there is no option left but to hold up their hands in surrender. Each is in a unique and lifelike pose.

Main Features:
- 4 figures
- Unique and lifelike poses
- Detailed and accurate sculpting

For these soldiers the war is over, but for the modeler, there are boundless vignette and diorama possibilities!

About the Georgian Legion:
Georgian Legion was the Wehrmacht’s ethnic military legion formed by the Georgian émigrés who were forced to leave their motherland after the Soviet occupation of the Democratic Republic of Georgia in 1921. The Georgian Legion was joined by former Red Army' volunteers' captured by the Germans and enlisted, while facing certain death from starvation, disease, forced labour and brutality, in POW lagers.

At least 30,000 Georgians served in the Nazi armed forces. Serving in the 13 field battalions, each having 5 companies and up to 800-strong, of the Wehrmacht's Georgia Legion, Georgians were also found in the Wehrmacht's North Caucasian Legion and in other Caucasian ethnic legions.

The Georgian Legion was commanded by Major General Shalva Maglakelidze.

Across Europe, especially in Italy and France, many Georgian soldiers in the German Armed Forces deserted and joined local Resistance Movements.

Product: 1:35 M132 Armored Flamethrower (SmartK)

Dragon has added another 1/35 scale kit to its growing M113-based family. This time the subject is the M132, which was a flamethrower version of the famous armored personnel carrier (APC). The 10.58-ton vehicle looks similar to a regular APC, but the cupola atop the hull features an M10-8 flamethrower alongside a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun. This turret could traverse 360º. Internally, the rear compartment was taken up by an M10 fuel and pressure unit plus four spherical 50-gallon fuel tanks. This amount of fuel was enough to fire a jet of flame for 32 seconds out to a maximum distance of 200m. The vehicle, often nicknamed the "Zippo", was widely used in the Vietnam War.

As would be expected, this M132 Flamethrower is based on currently available M113 chassis accurately built to 1/35 scale. However, the hull has been suitably modified with a set of new parts suitable for this specialist vehicle. This includes a brand new M10 turret containing the flamethrower and machine gun. Of course, the interior has been completely refurbished too. The four tanks for the napalm fuel are all installed inside. New, too, are brackets to protect the antenna bases. This 1/35 scale kit of the M132 Flamethrower lights up numerous opportunities for modelers wishing to create a Vietnam War vehicle, or to perhaps fit it into a dramatic combat diorama.

Product: 1:350 Deutsch.Zerstörer Z-32 (Smart Kit)

Germany produced 15 Zerstörer 1936A-class destroyers. They were actually closer in size to a light cruiser than a destroyer, and notably they were known only by their hull numbers and didn’t receive any names. The 3,597-ton Z32 was laid down at the DeSchiMAG shipyard in Bremen on 1 November 1940, before being commissioned on 15 September 1942. Z32 and two accompanying ships were ordered to sail to Brest soon after the D-Day landings. The Allies intercepted the radio order and Canadian Beaufighters were dispatched to attack the ships steaming through the Bay of Biscay. Z32 was slightly damaged but reached Brest, before departing again for Cherbourg. During a major naval engagement, she was damaged by the Canadian ships HMCS Haida and HMCS Huron in the Battle of Ushant on 9 June 1944, off the coast of Brittany. She was destroyed by air attack after beaching herself on the coast.

Dragon has earlier offered 1/350 scale kits of the Z31, Z38 and Z39 destroyers, and the trio is now being joined by their sister, Z32. This new kit comes with a brand new hull (which can be assembled as a full-hull or waterline-hull kit) beautifully created by slide mold. This hull includes degaussing cables, which were added to ships to reduce their magnetic field and so reduce the risk from magnetic torpedoes and mines. As with Dragon’s other Z-series destroyers, this kit is produced with the highest levels of engineering excellence, and its makes sensible use of other elements from these kits. A comprehensive selection of photo-etched parts is available to upgrade the sophisticated plastic components too. This is a stunning kit of another Kriegsmarine warship, one that had an interesting combat experience.

Product: 1/350 U.S.S. Kidd DDG-993

The U.S.S. Kidd (DDG-993) was commissioned on March 27th 1981. The four destroyers of the Kidd class were originally built for the Shah of Iran, and were acquired by the US Navy following the Shah's overthrow in 1979. The US Navy acquired them in 1981 and 1982 after they were canceled by the succeeding Iranian government. For this reason they are often referred to as the "Ayatollah class".

Built for action in the Persian Gulf, these ships are oriented for general purpose operations rather than specialized anti-submarine war. The most formidable warship of her size ever to patrol the world's oceans, blending the best features of the SPRUANCE Class destroyers with the combat system of the VIRGINIA Class nuclear cruisers to produce a ship with unique characteristics:

A ship so quiet, and an ASW system so capable, that she operates offensively against submarines.

The most sophisticated medium-range AAW systems in the Fleet, quick-reacting and highly accurate, with the capability for today's air defense environment and the growth potential for tomorrow's.

An exceptionally reliable and responsive engineering plant.

A deadly surface-to-surface weapons capability.

These characteristics make KIDD a triple-threat, one of the few truly multi-mission ships, able to operate offensively, to deal with simultaneous air, surface, and sub-surface attacks. After over 16 years of service with the U.S. Navy, this ship was decommissioned on March 12th 1988.

Product: 1:35 Brit. Panzerwagen Saladin Mk.II

The Black Label collection from Dragon already offers a tantalizing range of novel model kits. The latest item is another subject designed to titillate – a 1/35 scale replica of the Alvis Saladin Mk.II FV601(C) armored car. Bearing similarities with the Saracen armored personnel carrier, this 6x6 armored vehicle was widely used by the British Army from 1958 onwards, as well as by many other militaries. Production ended in 1972, by which time 1,177 examples had been manufactured. The 11.6-tonne Saladin featured a turret mounting a 76mm L5A1 gun and a coaxial M1919A4 machine gun, and it was operated by a crew of three. A Rolls-Royce B80 Mk.6A engine powered the vehicle to a top speed of 72km/h. Saladins were widely used in Oman during the Dhofar conflict rom 1972-76, as well as in Cyprus (1970s), the defense of Kuwait (1990) and the Sri Lankan Civil War. In British service the Saladin was eventually replaced by the Scorpion CVR(T).

As to be expected for such an innovative subject, the 1/35 scale Black Label kits employs brand new toolings. The distinctive form of the Saladin’s armored hull is accurately replicated. Full treatment is also given to the chassis and to the many components that are all but invisible when the vehicle is upright. Thus, the upper and lower links of the suspension, plus the longitudinal torsion bar system, are all beautifully recreated in miniature. For fans of British Army armored vehicles, this Saladin Mk.II is an exciting release. Furthermore, the vehicle was used so widely by numerous other countries that many other mouthwatering modeling opportunities present themselves.

Product: 1:700 H.M.S. DRAGON Type 45 Destroyer B2

According to the Chinese lunar calendar, this is the Year of the Dragon. Therefore, Cyber Hobby is celebrating the occasion with a 1/700 scale ship kit of HMS Dragon! This Royal Navy vessel is the fourth Type 45 air defense destroyer. HMS Daring was the lead ship of this new class, the UK’s first new destroyer type since the 1970s. A total of six ships are being constructed. Dragon was launched by BAE Systems Naval Ships in November 2008 and she is due for commissioning in the spring of 2012. The destroyer has a sleek and smooth profile designed to provide a low radar cross-section, and these Daring-class air warfare destroyers are among the world’s most advanced of their type. Their combat systems are based around the SAMPSON multifunction radar, S1850M 3-D air surveillance radar and Sea Viper missile system (with 48 Aster 15 and 30 air defense missiles and Sea Skua anti-ship missiles).
With recent items like LCS-1 and LCS-2, Dragon’s 1/700 scale ship kits have met an enthusiastic response from modelers. Following on from a 1/700 scale plastic kit of the first-of-class HMS Daring, now comes an upgraded and identically scaled HMS Dragon. Parts are formed from molds created by the very latest in technological and engineering design. The ship is reproduced in full detail, and the stealthy exterior is accurately proportioned. The enclosed radar tower is a sophisticated item, with various antennas extending from it at the correct angles. Lethal weapon systems like the 4.5-inch gun and air defense system are also supplied in remarkable detail. The kit includes a brand new Westland Merlin HM1 helicopter. Cartograf also offers red dragon markings for her bow, making this a true namesake of Dragon!

Don't miss out!

Cyber-Hobby has added an exciting 1/72 scale model kit to its Golden Wings series. The new item depicts a Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, a carrier-based dive-bomber widely used by the US Navy (USN) during WWII. The twin-seat SB2C was roundly criticized for its handling characteristics, range and reliability, but nevertheless it achieved good results in combat after improvements were made during the course of production. It participated in such battles as Rabaul, the Marianas, the Philippines, Taiwan, Iwo Jima, the Ryuku Islands and Okinawa. One of its strengths was the ability to carry a significant amount of munitions, plus it featured an internal bomb bay. Some 7,140 Helldivers were manufactured, but the variant portrayed in this kit is the SB2C-4, numerically the most common type. Introduced in mid-1944, the SB2C-4 incorporated perforated dive flaps and wing racks for eight 5-inch rockets or 1,000lb bombs. More than 2,000 SB2C-4 Helldivers were produced by Curtiss, and it was more successful than earlier variants.

This is in fact the very first 1/72 scale item in Cyber-Hobby’s refined Wing-Tech series, and it broadens the scope of successful 1/32 and 1/48 items already available. As such, the SB2C-4 employs high-tech innovations and widely uses slide molds. This enables excellent levels of detail and easy construction. Panel lines are sharply etched into the plastic components. Furthermore, as a carrier-based aircraft, modelers can choose to show the wings folded or extended according to their preference, plus the landing gear can be displayed either lowered or raised. The cockpit is full of detail as well, all of which c

New 1/72 Scale Model Spacecraft!!!

The Apollo space program aimed to put man on the Moon, and the final dry run was the Apollo 10 mission launched on 18 May 1969. It was designed to test all Moon landing procedures, everything except the actual landing itself. During the NASA mission, the Lunar Module (LM) actually came to within 15.6km/h of the Moon’s surface. The crew of three was also able to survey the eventual Apollo 11 landing site in the Sea of Tranquility. Interestingly the LM was deliberately not equipped for a landing, and the ascent module was short-fueled so that the crew wouldn’t be tempted into make a landing! The LM was nicknamed "Snoopy", while the Command Module (CM) was called "Charlie Brown". This was the fourth manned mission and it immediately preceded the successful Moon landing of Apollo 11. On its return to Earth on 26 May 1969, it attained a record-breaking speed of 39,897km/h!

Dragon’s newest plastic spacecraft kit represents key components of the Apollo 10 mission – the LM, CM and nosecone of the rocket. Each segment is beautifully detailed in 1/72 scale, with an amazing level of detail achieved by the use of advanced molding technology. Of special note is the unique transparent cone of the rocket that allows a clear view of LM "Snoopy" that’s snugly installed inside! Though the LM goes inside the cone, no detail has been spared. The plastic model has been produced in this way so that modelers can see and appreciate the "innards" of their spacecraft. In addition, the model is set off by the inclusion of an attractive display stand. This accurate model fits together to create a replica of the spacecraft that played such a pivotal role in allowing man to set foot on the Moon.
