The launch of Dragon's impressive fully built-up 1/6 scale Panzer II tank created a buzz of attention worldwide. This massive Panzer II was part of Dragon's 1/6 scale Action Figure collection, and it was significant because it was the first ever tank in the lineup. Now Dragon has followed it up with a separate model kit version of this Panzer II made to the same enormous scale. The result is one of Dragon's biggest ever model kits at nearly 32 inches long! The actual tank variant is a Panzer II Ausf.B, which was produced by Germany from December 1937 through to June 1938. The 8.9-ton tank was a mere 4.81m long, and it was operated by a crew of three. In the turret was a 20mm KwK.30 cannon and a 7.92mm MG34 machine gun. The Panzer II was at the forefront of the German invasion of Poland in 1939, and it also featured in the Blitzkrieg campaign against France and the Low Countries in 1940.
The tank kit is an awesome size in this scale! Elements are accurately represented, and building a model in this scale presents a whole new experience for model-makers. Take the track links, for example. Owners can assemble the individual track links one by one with the provided metal pins, just as occurred on the original tank. Even though the original tank was diminutive in size, this model built to exact 1/6 scale poses a significant presence. Appropriate crew figures from Dragon's extensive Action Figure range can also be matched with this tank. The turret rotates, the gun elevates and depresses, and in addition, the commander's hatch in the turret can open to accommodate a tank crewman in the hatch. Modelers will certainly want to clear space on their display shelves to park this scintillating Panzer II Ausf.B model kit!
