The model of this English “racket” is released on the occasion of the Telford 2017 exhibition. It is such a dozen short-run, issued in cooperation with Freightdog, yet has attracted great attention and sales numbers show that it pleased many modellers in England and in our country.
I built this model on the patina of the Zlín club in Chvalčov just out of the box for about 3 hours and during the construction I did not encounter any major problem. As is the case with models made with this technology, basic cleaning of all parts is a necessity and for some rather annoying matter. After this testimony, we are rewarded with good fitting of parts and a construction that is practically unnecessary.An unpretentious camouflage in the form of shiny white is the simplicity itself. So when it’s sporty, in a few hours of modeling, we have a handsome addition to the collection in the form of this attractive “rocket”, which many older modellers remember from their modeling beginnings in the form of a Polish kit from the 1970s.

New announcemment – # 6900-1/35 KINGTIGER LATE PRODUCTION w/NEW PATTERN TRACK s.Pz.Abt.506 (ARDENNES 1944)

The mighty German Kingtiger tank has always been immensely popular with modelers, so Dragon is offering another variant from the ‘big cat’ family. It’s a 1/35 scale kit of a Kingtiger with a Henschel turret. It’s also specially configured to represent a tank fighting in the Ardennes in 1944-45, when Germany launched a major counteroffensive that became known as the Battle of the Bulge.

While this 1/35 scale kit is a refined version of what has been available before, a key change is the unique Kgs 73/800/152 tracks. The running gear also comes with appropriate 18-tooth drive sprockets matching the tracks. The Kingtiger’s turret and upper hull have also been slightly refined as well. Additionally, there is a generous array of photo-etched partss. This kit thus offers a convenient way for modelers to create a Kingtiger ready to thunder through the wintry Ardennes forest.
