1:6 Pz. Kpfw. II Ausf. C

SKU: 500075045

Article number: 500075045 Product: 1:6 Pz. Kpfw. II Ausf. C

The first ever tank in Dragon’s 1/6 scale plastic kit lineup was the Panzer II Ausf.B (Item No.75025), which created worldwide excitement amongst the modeling and 1/6 action figure community! Now Dragon has doubled the number of Panzer IIs available because it is releasing a second variant! This time it’s a Panzer II Ausf.C, a type produced by Germany from June 1938 through till April 1940. It was operated by a crew of three, and the Ausf.C was the most common variant of the Panzer II family. In the turret were a 20mm KwK.30 cannon and a 7.92mm MG34 machine gun. Panzer II Ausf.C tanks were in the forefront of the German invasion of France in 1940, while a number were also dispatched to North Africa to fight with the legendary Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK).

Even though the original tank was diminutive in size, this kit built to 1/6 scale has an awesome presence and it’s one of Dragon’s biggest ever models. Elements are accurately represented, and building in this scale presents a whole new experience for model-makers. Take the track links, for example. Owners can assemble the individual track links one by one, just like on the original tank. Details are accurately represented, and there are numerous new components such as the cupola, turret, glacis plate and engine deck. The turret rotates, the gun elevates and depresses, plus the commander’s hatch can open, just perfect for fitting in a Dragon Action Figure. Collectors will certainly want to clear space to park this scintillating Panzer II Ausf.C!

1:6 Soviet Aerosan Rf-8/Gaz-98

SKU: 500075044

Article number: 500075044 Product: 1:6 Soviet Aerosan Rf-8/Gaz-98

Dragon has released a number of large-scale 1/6 models of famous vehicles from WWII, and the newest item is something novel. Because of the harsh winters in the Soviet Union, that country developed and produced many aerosans – a kind of motorized sled – for military purposes. The advantage of these vehicles was that they could cross deep snow-covered ground or frozen lakes/rivers, although they weren’t particularly maneuverable in tight confines. Gorki Narkorechflota developed the small and unarmored RF-8/GAZ-98 aerosan; production commenced in 1942 and about 2,000 were eventually made. Built of aviation plywood, it was powered by a 50hp GAZ-M1 truck engine and featured a 2.35m-diameter metal propeller. The commander/gunner sat in the front of the cockpit with a 7.62mm DT machine gun, while the driver/mechanic sat immediately behind him. The RF-8/GAZ-98 had a top speed of 50km/h.

The new Dragon 1/6 scale model kit shows an exact replica of an RF-8/GAZ-98 aerosan. The structure of this Soviet vehicle from WWII is beautifully produced, including the two-man cockpit (featuring a steering wheel or the driver), propeller, independent coil spring suspension and four skis. This plastic kit fits together with ease, and when finished and painted it would fit into a dramatic snowy vignette. Of course, Soviet figures from Dragon’s 1/6 range could easily fit around (or in) the aerosan to further dramatize the scene!

1:6 Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf.B

SKU: 500075025

Article number: 500075025 Product: 1:6 Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf.B

The launch of Dragon’s impressive fully built-up 1/6 scale Panzer II tank created a buzz of attention worldwide. This massive Panzer II was part of Dragon’s 1/6 scale Action Figure collection, and it was significant because it was the first ever tank in the lineup. Now Dragon has followed it up with a separate model kit version of this Panzer II made to the same enormous scale. The result is one of Dragon’s biggest ever model kits! The actual tank variant is a Panzer II Ausf.B, which was produced by Germany from December 1937 through to June 1938. The 8.9-ton tank was a mere 4.81m long, and it was operated by a crew of three. In the turret was a 20mm KwK.30 cannon and a 7.92mm MG34 machine gun. The Panzer II was at the forefront of the German invasion of Poland in 1939, and it also featured in the Blitzkrieg campaign against France and the Low Countries in 1940.

The tank kit is an awesome size in this scale! Elements are accurately represented, and building a model in this scale presents a whole new experience for model-makers. Take the track links, for example. Owners can assemble the individual track links one by one with the provided metal pins, just as occurred on the original tank. Even though the original tank was diminutive in size, this model built to exact 1/6 scale poses a significant presence. Appropriate crew figures from Dragon’s extensive Action Figure range can also be matched with this tank. The turret rotates, the gun elevates and depresses, and in addition, the commander’s hatch in the turret can open to accommodate a tank crewman in the hatch. Modelers will certainly want to clear space on their display shelves to park this scintillating Panzer II Ausf.B model kit!

1:6 Schwimmwagen

SKU: 500075013

Article number: 500075013 Product: 1:6 WWII Dt. Schwimmwagen Typ 166

In Dragon’s 1/6 scale range of kits, the very first vehicle – a Kübelwagen (Item No. 75003) – was very warmly received. Its popularity also inspired many to request a Schwimmwagen, which Dragon is now proud to add to the range. This unique amphibious vehicle is chockablock with detail, something that this scale allows to an impressive degree. The model includes an accurately molded rear-mounted propeller, which can be swung from its stowed to its operational position. This means the vehicle can be displayed either traversing land or swimming in water. The steering mechanism is fully workable too. For those connoisseurs of German WWII military vehicles and 1/6 scale models, this Schwimmwagen is set to become an icon itself!

While the American Willys Jeep was one of the most iconic vehicles of WWII, on the German side the Volkswagen Type 166 Schwimmwagen (literally "swimming/floating car") is also very famous. In fact, it’s the most widely produced amphibious car in history, with upwards of 15,000 produced from 1941-44! The 4x4 Schwimmwagen features a tub-like body that was necessary in order to render it waterproof, while the engine and mechanicals were taken from the VW Type 86 Kübelwagen. The Type 166 was fitted with a screw propeller on a swinging arm at the rear of the body to give it forward propulsion, while steering in water was accomplished via the front wheels. Weighing only 910kg, the Schwimmwagen could achieve amphibious speeds of up to 11km/h.
