1:35 E-100 Heavy Tank "Nachtjäger"

SKU: 500776011

Article number: 500776011 Product: 1/35 E-100 Heavy Tank "Nachtjäger"

First authorized in June 1943, the E-100 was a monstrous tank with a staggering weight of 140 tons. It was planned to mount a 12.8cm KwK44 L/55 main armament and a 7.5cm KwK44 L/36.5 gun in a modified Maus turret. However, a stop was put on development of super-heavy tanks in 1944, and this project was given a low priority. As a result, only one chassis prototype was assembled, though even this was not fully finished by the time WWII ended. The frontal armor on the E-100 ("E" stands for Entwicklungsfahrzeug) hull was 200mm thick, and that on the turret (if it had been eventually built) would have been 240mm thick.

The E-100 was never completed by Henschel, but Dragon has succeeded in finishing off the massive E-100 in 1/35 scale. In a magnificent "what if" item, this E-100 is made to exacting standards in Dragon’s 1/35 range of plastic kits. The model is made even more exclusive by the inclusion of infrared night vision equipment, meaning it is able to reign in the hours of darkness. With its huge bulk cloaked by darkness, this model is able to launch attacks or defend territory with equal ease! In daylight it’s no less impressive, with its enormous size and futuristic appearance. For such a cumbersome vehicle, close-in defense is provided by a set of four "nachtjagers" (night fighters). These German soldiers are just as effective at fighting at night, equipped with such cutting-edge weapons as MP44 assault rifles with the Vampir infrared scope and battery backpack, an MP44 with unique Krummlauf (curved leaf) curved barrel, and even a Gatling-type mini-gun. This kit offers unparalleled potential to modelers wishing to create a "futuristic" scene and vehicle, and to let their imaginations run wild!

1:48 Focke-Wulf Ta152C-1/R14

SKU: 500775573

Article number: 500775573 Product: 1:48 Focke-Wulf Tal 152C-1/R14

Features: - Detailed Ta152C fuselage w/accurate design - Wings accurately represent the real one - Intricate fuselage, engine and radiator cowling - Crystal-clear cockpit canopy can be assembled open/closed - Propeller can be rotated - Photo-etched parts to upgrade details - Highly detailed radiator cowling w/photo-etched parts and optional flaps - Air intake realistically produced - Tail w/fine detail - Torpedo authentically reproduced w/fine detail - Detailed landing gear can be assembled in extended or taxiing positions

Focke-Wulf aircraft of WWII were usually prefixed with the initials "Fw", with one of the best-known fighters from the German company being the Fw 190. However, in the case of the Ta 152, the prefix was changed to recognize the pivotal role played by chief designer Kurt Tank. Basically, the Ta 152 was a high-altitude fighter-interceptor derived from the Fw 190. The first production Ta 152H entered service in January 1945, although only 43 fighters were delivered to combat units before the war ended. The Ta 152C variant designed for slightly lower-altitude combat and for the ground attack role was armed with a 30mm MK 108 cannon and four 20mm MG 151/20 weapons.

Dragon’s newest 1/48 scale model depicts the proposed Ta 152C-1/R14 variant, which had the armaments previously mentioned as well as a torpedo stowed under the belly for attacking enemy shipping. However, Focke-Wulf assembly plants were overrun before the Ta 152C-1 began rolling off assembly lines so it never actually saw combat in the hands of the Luftwaffe. This plastic kit builds upon the success of the previously released Ta 152C-0, but it adds the formidable-looking torpedo. The cowling for the aircraft’s Daimler-Benz 12-cylinder DB 603LA has also been modified to provide the correct details. After enjoying Dragon’s famous build quality and engineering excellence, modelers can finish off their fighter with some

Article number: 500773621 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.

1:35 M48 AVLB

SKU: 500773606

Article number: 500773606 Product: 1:35 M48 AVLB

Dragon's M48 family comes the most ambitious version yet – a fantastic model of an M48 Armored Vehicle Launched Bridge (AVLB)! Hulls from M48 tanks were converted into AVLBs in the 1950s. Turrets were removed and a scissors-type bridge of 60-ton military load classification (MLC 60) was installed atop the hull. So it could be lowered over any gap up to 18m wide that needed to be crossed by other vehicles. Hydraulic cylinders raised the 14.65-ton bridge from the hull, lowered it to the ground and then unfurled it, a process that took just 2-5 minutes. The M48 AVLB weighed 57,470kg and measured 11.3m long with the bridge stowed.

This 1/35 scale kit is impressive in terms of its bulk, let alone the level of intricate detail inherent in such a vehicle and the MLC 60 bridge. This stunning kit makes use of Dragon’s previously released M48 tank releases. However, the massive scissors bridge is totally new from Dragon, making it the first such AVLB it to become available in plastic. To make it all the more attractive to modelers, the bridge can be stowed in stowed mode, fully launched or in any intermediate configuration. Such versatility means modelers can emplace the model in any kind of diorama. This unarmed M48 AVLB is a welcome addition to Dragon’s modern range of vehicle kits, and the fact that it was used by nations other than just the USA makes it a useful subject for modelers.

1:35 IDF Magach 3 w/ERA

SKU: 500773578

Article number: 500773578 Product: 1:35 IDF Magach 3 w/ERA

After previously releasing a Magach 1/2 tank, We proceeded to offer a Magach 3 as part of our Six-Day War series. Now yet another kit is available, a Magach 3 fitted with explosive reactive armor (ERA). Combat experience revealed the vulnerability of Israeli tanks to anti-tank guided missiles like the Soviet AT-3 Sagger, as well as to RPG-7s. It was clear that better protection was required, and Rafael developed the Blazer add-on ERA for several tank types. Blazer consisted of modular protective elements that contained inserts filled with an explosive compound to disrupt incoming HEAT projectiles. Blazer, a first-generation ERA, typically added about 1 ton to the Magach 3’s weight.

This 1/35 scale kit inherits excellent features from existing Magach 3 model, but it has been suitably modified to represent an IDF version fitted with ERA. This means the tank has a completely new and appealing look compared to the standard Magach 3. The ERA blocks on the hull and the turret are accurately replicated. There are other brand new parts too. For example, there is a new machine gun with ammunition box and a new commander’s cupola. Additionally, there’s a generous selection of photo-etched parts for delicate elements such as tool brackets and tow cable brackets, plus the tank uses one-piece tracks made from DS for added convenience. The 105mm main gun’s weatherproof mantlet cover is also made from DS to ensure maximum realism. This is an incredibly detailed kit of the Magach 3, and the ERA suite provides a fascinating look for this Israeli tank.
 

1:35 Egyptian Sherman

SKU: 500773570

Article number: 500773570 Product: 1/35 Egyptian Sherman

We already announced Magach 1/2 kit, Magach 3 used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Now it’s time to unveil the first of the IDF’s opponents, and this honor has fallen on an Egyptian Sherman tank. What is special about this tank is the fitment of an FL-10 turret onto a Sherman. Recognizing the limitations of the Sherman’s original 75mm gun, FL-10 turrets were taken from French-built AMX-13 light tanks. This turret with its autoloader allowed the crew to reduce from five to four men. The Shermans also featured diesel engines retrieved from M4A2s. These unique tanks were introduced into Egyptian service in the mid-1950s. However, a great many were destroyed or captured in the Six-Day War by Israel. Postwar evaluations by Israel showed that such special Sherman was similar in capability to its own M51 Isherman.

This 1/35 scale kit is based on Dragon’s excellent Sherman tooling. It thus has crisp details, a high degree of accuracy and very easy-to-assemble DS tracks. To this chassis has been added a brand new turret created especially for this hybrid vehicle. The complex shape of the FL-10 turret from the AMX-13 is extremely well reproduced. Indeed, the oscillating turret of the original FL-10 was basically made of two hinged parts, whereby elevation and recoil were achieved by the upper part moving relative to the lower part. Dragon has captured the turret shape perfectly. For Sherman fans this is a most unusual and desirable tank. And for fans of Middle East conflicts, this Egyptian Sherman is an ideal model to add to any collection!

1:35 IDF M3 Half Track

SKU: 500773569

Article number: 500773569 Product: 1/35 IDF M3 Half Track

The decisive Six-Day War fought between Israel and its neighbors will achieve its 50th anniversary next year. Between now and then, Dragon is releasing a series of 1/35 scale kits highlighting equipment that was critical to that famous Middle East conflict. Here comes another Israeli vehicle. It’s an M3 halftrack, a type used widely by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) at that time. American production of the M3 ran into the thousands, and after WWII many nations sold off their stocks to countries like Israel. The M3 in IDF service was an important vehicle for mechanized infantry, it being a forerunner to proper armored personnel carriers like the M113 that Israel later fielded in large numbers.

This 1/35 scale kit inherits the excellent foundational features of Dragon’s model of a WWII American M3 halftrack. However, it has been suitably modified to represent an Israeli M3 in the period of the Six-Day War. For example, there is a new machine gun mount above the front windscreen armor. A typical characteristic of Israeli halftracks was the mass of backpacks and kit stowed on and dangling off the sides of vehicles. This flurry of equipment is perfectly captured with a range of kit accessories made from DS, the ideal material to make such items from. This is a highly detailed and realistic model of an M3 halftrack fighting during the bitterly contested Six-Day War. Indeed, because such halftracks were used long before and after the 1967 conflict, this kit offers enormous modeling versatility too. It will definitely benefit any collection and will whet modelers appetites for even more Israeli subjects from Dragon’s Six-Day War collection!

Article number: 500773567 Product: 1/35 IDF Magach 3

Dragon continues to focus on the fascinating world of Israeli vehicles in its 1/35 scale kit range. After previously releasing its very first 2-in-1 kit depicting a Magach 1 / Magach 2 tank as used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Dragon is now able to offer a Magach 3 as part of its exciting Six-Day War series. A whole range of Magachs based on both the M48 and M60 were introduced. The Magach 3 was a modernized M48A1/A2C/A3 tank. Among the improvements were fitting of a British L7 105mm main gun (instead of the original 90mm gun), upgraded communications, a 750hp Continental AVDS-1790-2A diesel engine coupled to an Allison CD-850-6 automatic transmission, and a low-profile commander’s cupola.

This 1/35 scale kit inherits many of the excellent features of Dragon’s existing M48 model, but it has been suitably modified to represent a Magach 3 tank serving in the IDF. It incoporates 105mm main gun and the mantlet with its weatherproof cover made from DS to ensure maximum realism. The accurately shaped turret has subtle texture and embossed casting numbers. It also includes metal tow cables metal wire with new photo-etched brackets. Additionally, there’s a generous selection of photo-etched parts for delicate elements, plus the tank uses one-piece tracks made from DS for added convenience. This is an incredibly detailed kit of the Israeli Magach 3 tank and, thanks to its combination of high quality and ease of construction, it is a most welcome entry into Dragon’s Six-Day War collection.

1:32 P-51K Mustang w/4.5-Inch M10 Rocket

SKU: 500773224

Article number: 500773224 Product: 1:32 P-51K Mustang w/4.5-Inch M10 Rocket

NEW TOOLED M10 ROCKET LAUNCHER NEW TOOLED PROPELLER NEW TOOLED CANOPY

Aviation modelers have been waiting a long time for Dragon to release another fantastic model of the famous P-51 Mustang. At last the wait is over! Dragon’s new kit is a 1/32 scale kit of the P-51K. The American P-51 Mustang entered service midway through WWII and became a hugely successful and recognizable fighter. Most were employed as bomber escorts in the European theater, with the definitive and most widely produced version being the P-51D. The P-51K was essentially a P-51D with a different propeller, an Aeroproducts four-blade 11’-diameter hollow steel propeller. These propellers had a different blade shape to the more common Hamilton Standard, though they weren’t as reliable. Some 1,500 P-51K fighters were manufactured in Dallas. The P-51D and K arrived in Europe in mid-1944 and they quickly became the primary fighter of the US Army Air Force (USAAF).

Following Dragon’s earlier releases of 1/32 scale P-51D Mustang kits is this long-awaited P-51K variant. The kit features a brand new canopy and, obviously, a new propeller. To increase its attractiveness even further, the fighter is fitted with brand new 4.5-inch M10 rocket launchers. This three-tube M10 rocket launcher allowed the Mustang to terrorize German forces and vehicles on the ground in Northwest Europe, for example. As before, this kit is highly detailed using state-of-the-art engineering and molding techniques. No effort has been spared in producing a kit brimming with detail, and yet it’s one that remains easy to assemble. Cartograf has provided a series of outstanding decal markings, all that modelers will need to finish off Dragon’s latest 1/32 Mustang family member.

1:32 BF110D-1/R1 Dackelbauch

SKU: 500773207

One of Germany’s famous fighters of WWII was the Messerschmitt Bf110, a twin-engine heavy fighter (Zerstörer or "destroyer" in German) that later developed into a fighter-bomber and then into the Luftwaffe’s principal night fighter. The Bf110C was the first major series-production version of this aircraft, and an effort to increase its range resulted in the Bf110D Langstrecken ("long-range") Zerstörer. This extended-range version based on the Bf110C was fitted with external fuel tanks (e.g. 900-liter under-wing tanks or the Dackelbauch tank, the latter occasionally subject to mysterious mid-air explosions because of insufficiently vented and volatile fuel/air mixes!). The Bf110D was fielded in time to participate in the Norwegian Campaign against British and French forces in the far north of the country. Later, many aircraft were stationed in Norway so as to perform anti-shipping missions and conduct long-range raids against the north of the United Kingdom. The specific Bf110D-1/R-1, the first long-range variant, entered service in May 1940. However, its massive 1200-liter external belly Dackelbauch tank adversely affected the aircraft’s maneuverability.

Dragon has released a 1/32 scale model kit of the Bf110D-1/R-1, which follows hot on the tail of the Bf110C-7 (Item No. 3203) with its impressive level of detail and metal-skinned pattern. This kit features the characteristic Dackelbauch fuel tank, which is naturally newly tooled and possesses a unique ribbed appearance. Aircraft modelers seeking a distinctive aircraft will find this variant with its huge ventral fuel tank just the answer! The fuselage has also been correctly extended at the rear. The undercarriage can be displayed retracted or deployed, while photo-etched seatbelts add a high degree of finesse to the finished product. This new aircraft model is accurate, contains an ultimate level of detail and is easy to assemble. Interestingly, the nickname Dackelbauch means "Daschund belly" so this Bf110D will certainly get modelers’ tails wagging!<BR

1:350 German Z-32 Destroyer (Smart Kit)

SKU: 500771065

Article number: 500771065 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.

Article number: 500771040 Product: 1:350 German Battleship Scharnhorst

An appropriate accessory included in this kit is a comprehensive set of 1/350 scale crewmen. Although the figures might be small, they are highly detailed and true to scale. These plastic-injected crewmen far surpass similarly scaled two-dimensional photo-etched figures. Built to a high standard, figures comprise a gun crew for a 15cm gun turret. Other well-posed figures include the captain standing on the bridge, and another crewman climbing a ladder. When these figures are added to the giant battleship, they lend an air of realism and give a true sense of scale to this great German warship.

Dragon is proud to announce its most stunning ship kit ever – a 1/350 scale rendition of the famous German battleship Scharnhorst! The 31,500-ton Scharnhorst was commissioned on January 7 1939, and it often operated in partnership with its sister ship, Gneisenau. Buoyed by a top speed of 31.5 knots, this battleship wreaked havoc on Allied shipping with its nine 11-inch guns. It was involved in the invasion of Norway in 1940, during which it sank the British carrier HMS Glorious. In early 1941 the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau broke out into the Atlantic to lay siege to Allied shipping lanes. On December 25 1943, the Scharnhorst and accompanying destroyers put to sea to interdict Arctic convoys heading to Russia. However, aware of German plans, the British intercepted the Scharnhorst with a Royal Navy battleship, cruisers and destroyers. Reeling under multiple salvos of 2195 shells and 55 torpedoes, the Scharnhorst finally succumbed to its mortal wounds at 1945 hours on December 26. Of the 1968 crewmen aboard, only 36 survived. As an interesting footnote, the wreck of the Scharnhorst was discovered off North Cape in northern Norway in 2000.

Dragon’s project to create a 1/350 scale kit of the Scharnhorst was a mammoth undertaking. The result of 18 months of intensive labor, the impressively sized kit is Dragon’s first ever battleship in this scal
