Dragon’s Black Label series is proving popular thanks to its coverage of out-of-the-ordinary subjects that are normally not available as regular plastic kits. Black Label previously released a kit of a unique WWII design from the USA – an M6A1 Heavy Tank, a type that dated back to late 1940. Now that particular kit (Item No.6789) has been joined by a 1/35 scale kit of its close relative, the M6. The 57.4-tonne M6 was designed as a tank able to respond to Germany’s all-dominating Panzers that had previously swept through Europe in the Blitzkrieg, and approval to produce four prototypes was given in February 1941. The type proved unsatisfactory in testing, however, and in the end only eight M6, twelve M6A1 and 20 M6A2 tanks were built by Baldwin from 1942-44. The M6 had a crew of six and was armed with an M7 76mm gun, M6 37mm gun and no less than five machine guns. The M6 was distinguished by its cast hull.

The Black Label M6 model sensibly makes use of relevant parts from its sister kit, though the hull is obviously quite different. Whereas the M6A1 had a welded hull, the M6 had a cast hull, and thus a brand new upper hull appears in the box. Furthermore, this upper hull is produced as a single-piece item to ensure complete accuracy. Indeed, the kit widely uses slide-molded components thanks to Dragon’s technical know-how, making it easy to put together. It also features DS tracks for the sake of convenience. The M6 tanks produced in the early 1940s never left US soil as the design was considered anachronistic, but Black Label now makes the type available to all in this modern age!

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!

Product: 1:72 Apollo 11 Saturn V

Dragon’s announcement of a 1/72 scale pre-finished replica of a Saturn V rocket in its Space Collection created a huge buzz among space aficionados! Even in miniature form, it was absolutely enormous, as the completed model stood an unbelievable 1.5m tall. Now eager model builders can get in on the action with a full kit version of the Saturn V. As the longest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever produced, the original Saturn V stood 110.6m high and had a diameter of 10.1m. The Saturn V was at the heart of NASA’s Apollo and Skylab programs between 1967 and 1973. It was able to launch a 45-tonne payload into space beyond Low Earth Orbit. A total of 13 Saturn V launches took place, every one of them a success, plus they safely delivered 24 astronauts to the Moon.

Builders and owners of this Saturn rocket from Dragon will cause jaws to drop, while the model will without fail draw gasps of astonishment! The model includes the Command/Service Module (CSM) and Launch Escape System. All the relevant detail is carefully reproduced on the three rocket stages, and the model comes with accurate decals to provide the relevant markings. This Saturn V kit must become a centerpiece of any space fan’s collection, and as such it comes with a stable circular base to allow it to be freestanding on the floor. This spectacular and massive kit will send ambitious modelers into orbit!

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.

1:72 Apollo 11 LUNAR APPROACH CSM COLUMB

SKU: 500711001

Brand New 1/72 Scale Model Spacecraft!!!

Dragon is proud to launch a completely new line of 1/72 scale model spacecraft. The first fantastic kit set in this new collection is of Apollo 11, the first craft to put man on the Moon. Watched by millions of TV viewers, the historic Moon landing occurred on 20 July 1969 when the Apollo 11 mission touched down on lunar soil of the southern Sea of Tranquility. The Lunar Module (LM), christened Eagle, spent 21.5 hours on the Moon’s surface, while the Command Module (CM) named Columbia orbited above. The US flag was planted on the Moon, indicating to all who the winner of the Cold War space race was. The first astronaut to set foot on the Moon was Neil Armstrong, followed by Buzz Aldrin. The module returned to Earth on 24 July, splashing down in the Pacific Ocean with 21.5kg of lunar rocks and samples safely aboard.
As for Dragon’s 1/72 scale model, it features the Eagle LM still coupled to the Columbia CM on its approach to the Moon. The spacecraft modules are all newly tooled and they possess accurate details. Having the two modules connected like this makes for an impressive sight when they’re exhibited on the integral display stand. The kit also makes for an interesting education lesson, allowing modelers to understand more about this milestone event. The Apollo 11 mission was indeed "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." And now Dragon has added one more significant step for modelers too!
