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 Panther offers modelers a vehicle that can immediately fit into a

1:35 U.S. Army Tank Riders 1944-45

SKU: 500776378

Article number: 500776378 Product: 1/35 U.S. Army Tank Riders 1944-45

The column of olive-drab colored M4 Sherman tanks ground its way through the dusty, narrow lanes of northern France. On either side, thick vegetation and hedgerows pressed in. Clumps of battle-weary GIs sprawled on the engine decks of the Shermans, exhausted after continuous combat but grateful for the free ride. Their weapons remained close at hand, ready for an ambush or the next engagement with their German adversaries.

Such a scene can now be created thanks to the launch of Dragon’s latest Gen2 figure set. The 1/35 scale set includes four U.S. Army soldiers suitable for scenes in the 1944-45 period. These American "tank riders" are the first of their kind to be made available, making the set a valuable asset. Dragon has recently produced some accurate Sherman kits, and at last there are now infantry figures to populate these tanks. Each of the four figures is strikingly posed, either sitting or kneeling, and they have been carefully sculpted to fit onto a Sherman engine deck. Detail is sharp and incredibly refined in keeping with their Gen2 status. Combined they form an impressive NW European 1944-45 scene for Shermaholics. But of course, these figures are also inherently versatile as they can be depicted resting in just about any context. As with previous Gen2 figure sets, these GIs are equipped with the most detailed and latest in molded weaponry such as the Garand M1 and BAR. Their personal equipment is equally well represented in high-quality molded plastic. Indeed, these tank riders are ready to mount up and move out!
 

1:35 German Antitank Team/Panzerschreck

SKU: 500776374

Article number: 500776374 Product: 1:35 German Antitank Team/Panzerschreck

As the Soviet T-34 tank rumbled along the snow-coated street, its steel track treads crumbled the rubble into powder. Lurking in the shadows, a figure raised his weapon and took careful aim at the monstrous steel hulk bearing down on him. Suddenly he fired, the Ofenrohr ("Stove Pipe") emitting a large cloud of smoke. A rocket streaked towards the tank and penetrated its sloped armor, the vehicle clanking to a stop as flames and smoke erupted from its interior. The German tank hunter team quickly scuttled away to find a new position.

This type of scene was repeated over and over as German defenses were inundated by Soviet and Allied tanks in the latter part of WWII. With a dire shortage of tanks and tank destroyers, one smaller but still effective German weapon was the Panzerschreck ("tank terror") or Raketenpanzerbüchse ("rocket tank rifle", or RPzB). This antitank rocket launcher of 88mm caliber, from which the American bazooka was copied, was employed by infantry. Dragon’s newest figure set offers two Panzerschreck teams, one wearing winter uniforms and the other attired in summer uniforms. Their versatility allows them to be used for either Eastern or Western Front dioramas. As a Gen2 set, the figures are crisply detailed and have anatomically vivid poses. Likewise, their associated gear is sharply molded. Their RPzB 54 weapons with characteristic blast shields are amazingly detailed, the most accurate yet thanks to their Gen2 status. These teams are ready to terrorize some enemy tanks, and simply await a modeler’s touch to bring them to life!

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.

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.
