Product: 1:35 Operation Marita, Greece 1941

Operation Marita. This is the name Germany gave its plan to invade Greece in April 1941. In fact, Germany stepped in after Italy’s failed invasion kicked off the preceding October. Greece had repelled that initial invasion and had even counterattacked by March 1941. Consequently, on 6 April, 680,000 German troops with 1,200 tanks and 700 aircraft launched their invasion of Greece from Bulgarian territory, bypassing the bulk of Greek troops near the Albanian border. The Metaxas defensive line was overrun, and small numbers of Australian, British and New Zealand troops could not stem the flow. By the end of the month, the Greek mainland was in German hands, and then German troops also landed on and captured Crete in May 1941. Of interest, next year will mark the 80th anniversary of Operation Marita, so Dragon has brought together a number of 1/35 scale figure sets that feature participants in that decisive campaign.
This Dragon assortment features no fewer than six 1/35 scale figure sets depicting the Greek invasion, a campaign that has not received the publicity or attention that it perhaps deserves. All the figure sets represent German troops, including paratroopers, mountain troops, combat engineers and elite infantrymen. These realistic-looking figure sets depict different units, various uniforms and a range of weapons, giving lots of flexibility for model-makers to create a diorama. Few eyewitnesses of that military campaign in Greece remain alive, but modelers can recreate it through this prized figure collection.

Product: 1:35 Sd.Kfz.181 Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf.E TigerI

Dragon has a fantastic new 1/35 scale kit representing a mighty German Tiger I tank. This kit carries the title of Gruppe Fehrmann, and the plastic model represents Tigers from this rather interesting ad hoc unit that was formed towards the end of WWII. Indeed, at that time Germany was being squeezed from both east and west by the Soviets and Allies respectively, and Wehrmacht units were being disbanded and re-forged regularly. One such provisional unit formed in early 1945 was Gruppe Fehrmann, named after Oberleutnant Fehrmann who led a formation of six Tiger Is and five Panthers. These tanks bore an "F" prefix to denote their unit, and they were numbered from F01 to F13. This unit fought against the Allies in the area of the Ruhr Pocket on the Western Front and, in various engagements, the German tanks were knocked out or broke down one by one.


This new 1/35 scale kit allows modelers to produce a Tiger I specific to Gruppe Fehrmann. The kit makes use of tried-and-true parts from previous Tiger I releases from Dragon, which is entirely apt considering the ad hoc nature of the unit and of the half dozen Tiger I tanks used by it. Thus, the Tigers reflected a mix of early and late features in an eclectic hybrid kind of tank, such as an Early-Production turret and a Late-Production chassis/hull. Straight from the box, this highly detailed Tiger I from Gruppe Fehrmann is ready to foray into combat and to defend home soil against the Allies.

1:35 DAK Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.H (SmartKit)

SKU: 500776901

Article number: 500776901
Product: 1:35 DAK Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.H (SmartKit)

Dragon launched a 1/35 kit of a Panzerbefehlswagen III Ausf.H (Item No. 6844) last year, and while it was lapped up by modelers, there was also clamor for a Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) version of the same vehicle. Dragon has now obliged by creating a special DAK configuration of the Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.H! This specialized command tank containing long-range radios was created based on a standard Ausf.H gun tank, the first Panzer III version to be fitted with a 5cm KwK L/42 cannon. However, on the Pz.Bef.Wg. version there was no 5cm gun fitted, with just a single MG34 for self-defense and a dummy gun to fool the enemy.

Dragon’s new 1/35 scale DAK kit is different to the preceding Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.H kit in some noticeable ways. For example, it bears a large storage box on the engine deck, plus a smaller storage box on the front left of the fender. Another modification is a spare-track rack on the glacis plate. The sprockets and idler wheels are also different to that on the predecessor. And unchanged, is the characteristic large frame antenna for the long-range radio. Plus the vehicle looks most impressive when the turret-mounted telescopic antenna is shown extended. This Panzerbefehlswagen III H nicely complements lately-reproduced DAK items in Dragon’s line-up, including: Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf.A Early Production (Item No. 6289), Pz.Kpfw.III (5cm) Ausf.H Late Production (6642), Bison II 15cm s.IG.33 (6440), Kübelwagen Workshop w/DAK Troops (6338). With the arrival of this command tank, modelers now have even more options for creating a North African diorama.

Product: 1/35 Operation Typhoon 1941

Germany launched its massive invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, with the aim of destroying the country’s military, political apparatus and capturing its territory. The attack met with early success, and Axis forces advanced deep into Russia. Operation Typhoon was Germany’s strategic offensive to capture the capital Moscow, Russia’s political center. The operation consisted of two pincers north and south of Moscow by panzer groups, as well as a large force moving west directly against the city. However, German forces, confronted by
stretched supply lines, the debilitating onset of winter and stiffening resistance, finally stalled on Moscow’s outskirts. This bitter fighting took place between October 1941 and January 1942 before Soviet counteroffensives turned the tide. The fighting around Moscow incurred
some one million casualties, and it represented the first German retreat from which it would never recover.
Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale figure set portrays German soldiers from Operation Typhoon.
The figures are bundled up against the freezing cold winter weather that made conditions even more hazardous. Typical of the period, and Germany’s ill-preparedness for winter warfare, the four soldiers are wearing a wide range of clothing. A general has a sheepskin coat
on, attire that’s rarely produced in 1/35 scale. The poses are extremely vivid, and one can almost feel the cold seeping through their clothing and the snow flurries blowing against them.
These well-sculpted figures could be used individually in a vignette, or grouped together in a winter scene. This was the first severe winter that German troops encountered, and this set perfectly conveys the grueling nature of the ultimately unsuccessful Operation Typhoon.

You can't afford to miss it!

Hauptsturmführer Michael Wittmann was one of Germany’s highest-scoring tank aces of WWII, with the credited destruction of 138 tanks and 132 anti-tank guns. He cut his teeth on the Eastern Front with a StuG.III, and latterly he took command of a Tiger I in time for combat during Operation Citadel at Kursk in July 1943. Dragon has created a magnificent representation of Wittmann’s Tiger I (turret number ‘S04’) with 88 kill marks on barrel. Dragon’s kit appropriately portrays an Early-Production variant, and it forms the important and much-anticipated last piece of Dragon’s exemplary Tiger I family.

This awesome plastic kit made precisely to 1/35 scale shows Wittmann’s Tiger I with 88 kill marks on the lethal 8.8cm gun barrel. These painted barrel rings illustrated the power of the Tiger I as well as the skill of tank ace Wittmann. This brand new kit stems from thorough research and it’s thus accurately designed to represent Wittmann’s ‘S04’ mount. To ensure the absolute highest levels of quality, the majority of components in this special release, like turret, upper hull, engine deck, rear panel, road wheels, spare tracks and etc, are newly tooled and engineered to achieve the engineering level of a Smart Kit, and to provide the unique appearance of this famous Tiger. Morever, a full set of Michael Wittmann's crew is included in first production run as a BONUS!

1:35 Ardelt-Rheinmetall 8.8cm PaK 43

SKU: 500776728

Product: 1:35 Ardelt-Rheinmetall 8.8cm PaK 43

At the recent Nuremberg Toy Fair, Dragon excited modelers with a tantalizing look at a new 1/35 scale model. The upcoming kit represents a German design that reached only prototype status, but which is a fascinating subject nonetheless. The vehicle is the Ardelt-Rheinmetall 8.8cm PaK 43 Waffenträger. The conceptual idea behind this weapon system was a self-propelled mount for the powerful but heavy 8.8cm antitank gun, as towed versions of this gun were too unwieldy for crews to move readily. Ardelt and Rheinmetall combined to build the first prototype and tests were conducted on this Ardelt I. The vehicle’s engine was fitted at the front of the hull, which permitted the main armament – an 8.8cm L/71 cannon – to be fitted on the rear. It utilized a 38(t) chassis with four road wheels per side. An improved prototype (Ardelt II) was later produced by Ardelt and Krupp, but the end of the war intervened before production got off the ground.

Dragon’s kit represents the original Ardelt-Rheinmetall prototype, and it’s a scintillating subject in 1/35 scale. To suit the prototypical nature of the Waffenträger, the plastic model employs brand new upper-hull and lower-hull components. The open-top fighting compartment is filled with details, and the armor plates surrounding it have been carefully manufactured to achieve the correct scale thickness. Taking center stage, of course, is the massive 8.8cm PaK 43 antitank gun. This weapon is fully reproduced from the tip of its muzzle brake to the breech. All in all, Dragon offers modelers the highest-quality kit of this novel Waffenträger.

Product: 1/35 Panzer-Regiment 7, 10.Pz.Div. 1941

In terms of 1/35 scale plastic figure sets, Dragon has one of the world’s most comprehensive ranges. The range has just been enlarged even more with a set that will prove one of the most useful and versatile for armored vehicle modelers. Item No.6655 features three tank German crewmen. While the box art identifies them as coming from Panzer-Regiment 7 of 10.Panzer-Division during the invasion of Russia, they can certainly be used for any early-war period. The figures have been specifically designed by the master sculptor to fit neatly into the hatches of either Panzer III or Panzer IV tanks. These plastic figures are sharply molded with realistic poses of the type widely seen in WWII photographs. As well as the commander standing in his hatch, and another standing figure, the third member of the tank crew is designed to sit in the left-side hatch of a panzer turret. This is not an easy pose for modelers to try and create independently on their own, so this figure will prove very useful. Dressed for warm weather, this crewman wears shirt sleeves rather than his jacket.

To add even more value to this 1/35 scale figure set, the box also includes a bonus figure, none other than Generaloberst Guderian! Heinz Guderian was a genius in developing Germany’s blitzkrieg tactics, and here he is represented in miniature. The lifelike figure is a Gen2 figure. Dragon has already released a number of German early-war Panzer III and IV tank kits, and here comes the crew to operate and general to lead them!

1:35 Ghost Division Tanc Crew Blitzkrieg

SKU: 500776654

Product: 1/35 Ghost Division Tanc Crew Blitzkrieg

Blitzkrieg ("Lightning War") was a term used to describe the new form of warfare that Germany unleashed on its unprepared foes at the start of WWII. As its core, Blitzkrieg involved the integrated use of mechanized units containing tanks, infantry, artillery and airpower. When combined, these assets had the devastating ability to swiftly pierce enemy lines and keep opponents off-balance. This innovative German strategy was first seen in the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and it also proved highly effective in the invasion of the Low Countries and France in 1940. Dragon has produced a novel set of 1/35 scale figures that will enable modelers to recreate an imaginary scene from this early period of the war.

The set contains four figures from the "Ghost Division." This was the moniker given to Erwin Rommel’s 7th Panzer Division because of the speed with which it moved during the invasion of France, with even the German High Command unable to keep up with its progress. Three of the figures are tank crewmen and the remaining figure is an infantryman. The set permits the creation of two separate episodes. The first sees a lightly wounded tanker being escorted to safety by a comrade. Such a scene is not easy to engineer by oneself because of the complicated task of blending two figures, but Dragon provides the ideal solution after completing and tooling a highly demanding master. The second pair of figures features a tanker conversing with a soldier, and such is their versatility that they will easily assimilate into just about any diorama. The figures wear typical early-war uniform items like panzer berets from the 1940 Blitzkrieg era. Sharply molded and realistically sculpted, these German figures will contribute much to an interesting Blitzkrieg scene involving some of Dragon’s panzer kits.
