Product: 1:72 PZ.KPFW.III Ausf. N w/Schürzen Ten

Considering the fact that the Panzer III was a product of the 1930s, this German medium tank did well to serve so long in WWII. It was obviously supplanted by the Panzer IV and later the Panther in the tank-versus-tank role, but it did find a niche in the infantry support role. This is most clearly expressed in the final Pz.Kpfw.III variant to enter service – the Ausf.N, of which 700 were manufactured or converted. The Panzer III N entered service in June 1942 and production continued until August 1943. Key characteristics of the Ausf.N were its basis on the Ausf.J or M chassis, and the fitting of a short-barreled 7.5cm KwK37 L/24 gun. Ironically, this was the weapon fitted to older Panzer IV A-F1 tanks. Thus equipped, the Panzer III N was used in the close-support role in Tiger battalions or Panzergrenadier divisions.

Dragon’s Armor Pro series is releasing its second 1/72 scale kit of the Panzer III Ausf.N. The first item to be available (No.7386) was a vehicle serving with the Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) in North Africa, and since this new kit is based upon that successful release, it can be expected to assemble easily and accurately. Amongst the many features of this latest kit is a full set of turret and hull Schürzen – 5mm-thick armored skirts that were fitted to original vehicles from March 1943 onwards to protect against enemy anti-tank weapons. On this kit, the hull and turret Schürzen and associated support brackets involve brand new toolings. This is an exciting new 1/72 kit of an important Panzer III variant – an ideal vehicle to accompany a Tiger tank into battle!

Product: 1/72 WWII Ger.Truck Krupp Protze w/PaK

Dragon has come up with a fantastic new German soft-skin vehicle! Appearing in 1/72 scale for the first time from Dragon comes a Kfz.70 Personnel Carrier. This popular truck design served throughout WWII after mass production commenced in 1933. A total of about 7,000 trucks were produced up till 1942. This 6x4 vehicle was powered by an air-cooled 3.308-liter flat-four engine. The horizontal engine gave rise to the truck’s distinctive sharply sloped nose, and also to its nickname "Boxer". The truck was used for all kinds of purposes, and was commonly employed for towing light artillery such as the 3.7cm Pak 35/36 antitank cannon.

Everything is newly tooled on this delightful truck model. The parts separation on Dragon’s Kfz.70 is smartly done, allowing full detail to be reproduced both above and below the chassis. The wheels and independent coil spring suspension are masterfully represented. The raking hood is produced in one piece with the front fenders to simplify construction and to increase accurate assembly. The front windshield is made from transparent plastic to allow more realism. To make the model even more appealing and valuable, the kit comes with a 3.7cm PaK 36/37 antitank cannon. Modelers can thus portray the truck towing this gun, even though it remains a Kfz.70 version. This 6x4 truck was a workhorse of the German military during WWII, and Dragon has come up with an equally robust and versatile model to populate dioramas or to cart German soldiers around the battlefield!

Product: 1:72 PZ.KPFW.IV Ausf. F2(G)

The improved lethality of the long-barreled 7.5cm KwK40 gun of the Pz.IV Ausf.F2 and Ausf.G was greatly welcomed by German tankers during WWII. The Panzer IV G was supposed to be the first tank installed with the 7.5cm KwK40 L/43 gun in 1942. However, the Wehrmacht needed to urgently counteract the thicker armor of Russian T-34 and KV-1 tanks, so this gun was also fitted to some Ausf.F tanks (where it was known as the F2). A total of 175 F2 tanks were produced from March to July 1942 (with a further 25 converted from F1), while 1687 Ausf.G tanks were manufactured.

Dragon has already released a beautifully crafted 1/35 scale kit of such a Panzer IV Ausf.F2(G), and now it has been reproduced in 1/72 scale. Although the model itself might have been scaled down, there is no corresponding diminution in detail! It builds upon the intensive research and engineering done by the expert design team for the 1/35 kit. This new release has extremely well-detailed parts thanks to the clever employment of slide molds. The gun barrel is slide molded along with the muzzle brake and both fenders are brand new. Accurate markings for tanks operating in diverse theaters such as the Eastern Front, France and Tunisia are supplied in the form of decals created by Cartograf. Impressively easy to assemble thanks to clever mold design, and full of detail, this Panzer IV Ausf.F2(G) is destined to follow in the tracks of its 1/35 scale brother and thus enjoy instant popularity!

Product: 1:72 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf. F1

"Dragon has now released well over 100 models in its popular 1/72 scale AFV series. As if this wasn’t a milestone enough, Dragon is now pleased to announce a groundbreaking release. For the first time ever, Dragon has created a 1/72 scale Panzer IV tank! Building upon Dragon’s extensive experience and expertise in 1/35 scale Panzer IV kits, the first release is a Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.F1.

The Panzer IV (Sd.Kfz.161) formed the mainstay of German panzer divisions, and it holds the distinction of being the only German tank to remain in production throughout the course of WWII. This tank, numerically the most common with 8500 produced, underwent a series of improvements to improve its armament and armor protection. The Ausf. F1 was manufactured from April 1941 to March 1942. Armed with a short-barreled 75mm KwK37 L/24 gun, a total of more than 450 were produced, although a number were later converted to F2 status. Other unique distinguishing features were a new turret design (with thicker armor, and two-piece side doors), plus new drive sprockets and idler wheels to accommodate wider 400mm tracks.


Dragon’s new model accurately reflects all these key personality traits, and indeed, the model is completely new except for the road wheels! It has benefited tremendously from technical know-how and research conducted in creating its 1/35 scale brothers. Dragon is thus justifiably proud of this new Panzer IV kit, which is undoubtedly the best available on the market in terms of accuracy, detail and proportions. For those small-scale modelers interested in early Panzers, this kit will be an instant hit!

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!

1:72 Apollo 10 CSM + LM + LES

SKU: 500711003

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!
