The Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.G.
With the recent competition from Dragon and the taster yesterday that announced the new line was going to be called 'Smart Kits', here's some more tasters!
It would seem, a first glance, that these new releases are subjects which are following a 'well-trodden' path, however, both are offering some significant features in a scale which definitely deserves some consideration as an 'alternative' to the more traditional....
Well in about 8 hrs I will be on the road heading to LA/Anaheim for the Dragon Expo. Armorama doesn't have a table or stand at this show (I decided against it this time around) but Vinnie and I will be at the show and would love to meet any site members or visitors who attend the show.

These are the new releases getting listed for release in July 2006...

In the third of these Dragon Models' News stories based on their 2006, catalogue, the attention turns to an increasingly important (and horribly neglected) part of the hobby - 1/72nd scale.

It should also be noted, these are informative , not definitive. Things will doubtless change during the course of the year.....
Thru a special 'dispensation' - Dragon Models are allowing us to publish the details of the new products listed in theit 2006 catalogue.
