Adam Mann takes a close look at this new kit from Dragon. The Tauchpanzer was originally designed to be submersible ''diving tanks'' for the invasion of Britain.

Great review. I haven't built any of my Dragon PIIIs yet so I learned quite a bit about the kits in general as well. Going to start looking for that Seelowe white box now, too. If the Germans actually built it and drove it at least as far as across the parking lot, I'll probably buy it.

How are DS tracks still a thing? They fall apart.

Yeah I'm buying more bronco with Meng and Takom coming along with nice kits too. Even Trumpter is improving whilst dragon definitely has taken a big step backwards

I'd wish the video-reviews also included a short written summary with highs, lows and verdict!

Brekinapez, a few Tauchpanzer were successfully used for fording the river Bug on the eastern front.

Sorry, my bad. What I meant to say is that anything the Germans got finished to the point of sending a copy out the factory doors and around the parking lot for a spin at least, I would probably buy a kit of at some time or another as opposed to paper projects or unfinished and inoperable prototypes. So a Maus yes but a Ratte likely not (especially since I prefer 1/35!).
