Dragon Flakpanzer IV (3cm) Kugelblitz (Smart Kit) Ref 6889 Escala 1:35
- More than two decades ago, Dragon offered a 1/35 scale kit of the German Flakpanzer IV, a vehicle nicknamed Kugelblitz.
- It turned out to be one of Dragon’s signature kits, and it attained a legendary status in the company’s early days.
- That was a long time ago, so it’s about time for the legend to be reborn! This is exactly what Dragon has done with a brand new kit of the Kugelblitz that’s built to contemporary standards.
- It was once thought that the Kugelblitz never saw combat, but it is now known that one fought near Spichra, Thuringia, after it was unearthed there in 1999.
- For the delectation of modelers, Dragon has produced a fantastic 1/35 scale plastic kit of the Flakpanzer IV Kugelblitz.
- Indeed, it bears absolutely no relation to the old kit.
- Instead, it makes judicious use of new components from Dragon’s revamped Panzer IV range.
- To create this Flakpanzer IV variant, it also comes with a completely new upper hull, as well as a brand new turret that can rotate 360 .
- The turret looks rather futuristic, and it creates an innovative-looking German combat vehicle
