In terms of 1/35 scale plastic figure sets, Dragon has one of the world's most comprehensive ranges. The range has just been enlarged even more with a set that will prove one of the most useful and versatile for armored vehicle modelers. Item No.6655 features three tank German crewmen. While the box art identifies them as coming from Panzer-Regiment 7 of 10.Panzer-Division during the invasion of Russia, they can certainly be used for any early-war period. The figures have been specifically designed by the master sculptor to fit neatly into the hatches of either Panzer III or Panzer IV tanks. These plastic figures are sharply molded with realistic poses of the type widely seen in WWII photographs. As well as the commander standing in his hatch, and another standing figure, the third member of the tank crew is designed to sit in the left-side hatch of a panzer turret. This is not an easy pose for modelers to try and create independently on their own, so this figure will prove very useful. Dressed for warm weather, this crewman wears shirt sleeves rather than his jacket.
To add even more value to this 1/35 scale figure set, the box also includes a bonus figure, none other than Generaloberst Guderian! Heinz Guderian was a genius in developing Germany's blitzkrieg tactics, and here he is represented in miniature. The lifelike figure is a Gen2 figure. Dragon has already released a number of German early-war Panzer III and IV tank kits, and here comes the crew to operate and general to lead them!
