New from Dragon USA

Two new Dragon kits that will be available in August:

DRA6688, StuG.III Ausf.E

Dragon has already launched a number of splendid new-generation 1/35 scale kits of the StuG.III family, but to date these have been later production types like the Ausf.G. Dragon is now redressing this gap by offering a brand new kit of the Ausf.E, which is designed by Japanese designers and Dragon team. Also it is the only 1/35 StuG.III Ausf.E in nowadays standard available on market! This 1/35 scale rendition of the tank destroyer boasts many great new plastic parts. These include the superstructure roof, headlights and covers, StuK37 short-barreled gun, fighting-compartment floor, frontal armor and cleaning rods in their associated rack. This is Dragon’s finest model ever of the important StuG.III Ausf.E, and modelers will find it a treat to assemble and finish thanks to its superior level of detail and ease of assembly.

DRA7521, 1/72 Churchill Mk.IV AVRE

Dragon Armor Pro previously released a popular 1/72 scale kit of a Churchill Mk.III AVRE, and this has now been followed by a model of the similar Mk.IV combat engineer vehicle. Again, it features the Petard 290mm main armament, plus a suitable turret and brand new suspension units that are stowed on the rear fenders. This model of the Churchill Mk.IV combat engineer tank is beautifully detailed, and the kit assembles quickly and easily into an accurate model thanks to time-saving elements like one-piece DS tracks and single-piece bogies to represent the complicated running gear. For modelers wishing to depict a Normandy scene or something similar, this new kit is a must-have!
