Dragon 1/35 'Conquerors of Sevastapol'
|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken|
|NOTES:||Gen 2 figure set with four figures.|
They are all wearing different uniform items in keeping with their functions. The Feldgendarmerie, for example, is wearing the rubberized protective coat issued to motorcycle riders. He also wears the MP gorget on a chain around his neck. Each figure is fully equipped with weapons made to the very latest Gen 2 standards. The range of weaponry includes MP28 and MP38 submachine guns, a Kar98k rifle and a captured Czech machine gun. To help him do his job, the Panzer-Pionier also has a Rohrladung Stahl 3kg (explosive charge similar to a “Bangalore torpedo”) and Nb.K.39 smoke canister. This is a versatile set that is sharply sculpted, and modelers will find multitudinous uses for it!
Dragon’s latest 1/35 scale figure set features four soldiers who fought in this grueling battle. They may have conquered Sevastopol, but by the looks of several of these figures, the battle has certainly taken its toll on them! The plastic figures are sharply molded and they assemble to create lifelike poses. The figures range from a general with a paunch, down to a ravenous soldier of much lesser rank who is wolfing down a meal. Each figure is accompanied by Gen2 personal gear and weapons. Of note, the cigar-smoking general has a periscope mounted on a tripod. While these figures in summer uniforms relate directly to the Siege of Sevastopol, they could easily be utilized in a whole plethora of other ways.
Those who have read the recent Concord book on the Sevastapol campaign will recognize many of these subjects from the color profiles in the center of that book.
