NEW FROM Matho Models 1/35

Fruit & Vegetables (35051). A six part resin set which contains baskets, sacks and crates full of fruits and vegetables, mainly round shapes, like apples or tomatoes, two small crates of cucumbers, long chilli peppers and a sack with rice or similar grains.

Tool Set (35066). This contains a photoetched and spanner set, a hacksaw, woodsaw and many other, more than 50 smaller tools, very useful for a service diorama in 1/35 or 1/32 – and even 1/24 and 1/48 scales. Detail of smaller items is excellent.

Wooden Crates (35025). Five closed wooden crates of various shapes, two long and three smaller. A razor saw tool is needed to separate the resin block base and some wet and dry paper for finish as usual.

Cardboard Boxes Soda (35073). This contains 34 boxes branded to firms/products like Fanta, Coca Cola, Pepsi and Schweppes Soda. These are printed in hard glossy white paper and can be folded to create open, closed or any other state of boxes. Detail and printing quality are excellent.

Cats (35047). This set contains five 3D printed cats in 1/35 and similar scales (each one about 15mm long including the tail or about 10mm long without counting the tail). Two standing, two sitting (one licking his/her right paw) and one reclining. There are no resin blocks or any flash needing to be removed. You can just use them immediately after separating them from their thin sprue. However their UV cured acrylic plastic material is delicate and careful handling is advised especially concerning the legs. These are by far the best scale cats we have ever seen, much better than anything we could find anywhere in similar scales. Their detail is exceptional and come in a nice variety of poses, as you can see in the photo gallery. Very useful when adding any of them to a diorama, vignette or even as special stowage on a vehicle.

Dragon is releasing another exciting 1/35 scale Premium Edition kit of an 8×8 vehicle from the German Sd.Kfz.234 series. This kit depicts probably the most famous variant, the 234/2 that was commonly referred to as the Puma. The first batch of vehicles was delivered in December 1943, and by the time production ceased in September 1944, a total of 101 vehicles had been produced.

Original kit of Sd.Kfz.234/2 (#6256) possessed a phenomenal amount of detail. Dragon is constantly striving to raise the bar, and so it was time to update it as a Premium Edition kit. Improvements include 3 sandwich-type road wheels as option. All wheels can be adjusted to different angles. Further refinement comes from a selection of photo-etched metal parts. The turret is accurately shaped and includes realistic weld seams. This Puma, a plastic work of art, is oozing with feline charm, and it should form an essential complement to any respectable WWII model collection.
