Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale 2-in-1 kit permits the model-maker to build either the recovery vehicle or a Panzer IV combat tank. Normally a 2-in-1 kit has two very similar vehicle variants enclosed in the one box, but this one stands out for the very dissimilar vehicles on offer. Indeed, modelers can thus choose to make something that looks quite different. This kit employs high-quality parts from Dragon’s Panzer IV family, including numerous slide-molded components and even photo-etched metal parts such as the side skirts to give a true-to-scale thickness.

1/35 Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D w/Zimmerit (2 in 1)

ITEM NO: DRA 6945
EAN-13 BARCODE: 0089195869456
SCALE: 1:35
ANNOUNCED ON: 9/12/2019

The key feature of this 1/35 scale Panther Ausf.D plastic kit from Dragon is the inclusion of two possibilities – modelers can build a Panther either with or without a coating of Zimmerit. Thus, in the kit box there are two sets of parts for the turret, mantlet, upper hull, glacis, rear plate and stowage boxes to allow either version to be assembled. The Zimmerit coating is a masterpiece of sculpting and molding, and it equals the delicacy of a master-modeler’s handiwork. This kit also features one-piece DS tracks with hollow guide horns. For both types, there are a number of photo-etched metal parts (e.g. engine deck grills) to help modelers accurately depict the fine components on this famous German tank. Thanks to the versatility of this 2-in-1 set, modelers have the liberty of buying the kit now and then deciding at their own leisure which type to build!

This new 1/35 kit boasts the Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf.J Initial Production or Early Production. The box contains all parts necessary to reproduce the correct characteristics of whichever subtype the modeler selects, including distinctive engine decks and hatches. This kit is replete with a sizzling level of detail, including Magic Tracks and photo-etched parts. The tanks are enhanced by a wide selection of high-quality Cartograf decals. Appearing on the Eastern Front and in North Africa, the Panzer III J’s diverse use against T-34s and KV-1 tanks in Russia, or Grants and Valentines on North Africa’s battlefields, provides modelers with innumerable opportunities to depict this tank in different dioramas.

We are implementing a major revamp of our 1/35 scale plastic kits with a new concept called Neo Smart Kits. So what does the Neo Smart Kit line entail?

We are selecting existing top-quality core kits – essentially Smart Kits that are already engineered for easy assembly and very high accuracy – as the base for our new Neo Smart Kit family. The resulting products are even more pleasurable to build because they receive Neo Tracks that take no time at all to put together and retain stunning detail. Additionally, some kits will have newly tooled single-piece parts to replace what were once multi-part subassemblies or surplus parts. The benefit is that fewer parts need to be injection molded at the outset, making each kit more economical and more environmentally friendly.

Dragon continues its exciting 2-in-1 series with its focus now turning to the Sd.Kfz.7/2 anti-aircraft halftrack. Original versions of this air defense vehicle had a regular open cab, whereas the armored Sd.Kfz.7/2 version appeared from late 1943 onwards. The weapon also switched from the Flak 36 to the improved Flak 37 in 1944. Dragon’s 2-in-1 kit of these Sd.Kfz.7/2 halftracks provides modelers with either a regular open cab or an armored cab. Furthermore, the kit offers two different types of tailgates/dropsides. Featuring slide-mold technology and photo-etched parts, the halftrack chassis and 3.7cm cannons exhibit an ultimate level of accuracy. This 2-in-1 choice of the Sd.Kfz.7/2 is therefore a convenient solution for the connoisseur who has not yet decided which fascinating German antiaircraft vehicle to build!

Dragon is now offering a convenient 2-in-1 kit of the German Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind. The 2-in-1 option allows modelers to buy the kit and then decide later whether they want to build the vanilla or the Zimmerit version of the air defense vehicle. To permit this degree of flexibility, the box contains two complete sets of lower hulls, upper hulls, glacis plates and other relevant components. All associated detail of the open-topped turret, hull and running gear is furnished, and the kit also utilizes Dragon’s highly acclaimed 2cm Flakvierling 38. This is a welcome arrival thanks to the 2-in-1 versatility, as well as the fact that the Flakpanzer IV is not released very frequently. Indeed, this kit should put wind in the sails of German AFV devotees!
