Dragon 1/72 Panzerfähre Gepanzerte Landwasserschlepper (1st prototype)
|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken|
|NOTES:||Armor Pro Kit|
Having produced this in 1/35, it was almost inevitable that we would see this in 1/72 scale as well. It is not surprising that, like their larger kit, much of this is based on their Panzer IV. The kit has a couple of interesting features. One is that there are inserts for each of the outer road wheels. Apparently wheel design changed with time. The other is that there is no photo etch with this one, something we have almost come to expect with Dragon kits in any scale. Thanks to the scale, construction time will not be long, but painting those small road wheels may take a bit of time. I would paint them first before installing the inserts. Might save some time. Here is a full list of features.
Instructions are as the norm with Dragon kits, though thanks to the lower than usual parts count, they are not as crowded as usual. Markings are simply insignia as befits a prototype vehicle.
If you are a fan of the unusual, then this one must certainly be on your list. It will make into a relatively large model for the scale and look quite unusual amongst the usual mass of tracked armor on your shelves.
