Odd that in the promotional shots on page 2 they have the Panzer II and 38t built up. These aren't even in the new range. :?

Future production? I'll put my order in for some Marder II's and III's (both the Ausf H and M variants).

Re: the "rubber band" tracks, it's so 1960's Airfix that I can't help but wonder why a progressive company like Dragon would go down that path. I think ICBM is not going to lose anything by marketing these PE tracks. Only problem is the company name. Enter "1/144" and "ICBM" and you can guess what Google comes up with.

Weren't the PzII and 38t/her ers in the original production run? I assume like most kits, a huge amount of remain unbuilt..

You only have to look at various after market companies that are plstill selling after market parts for kits that are OOP.

I assume that all of the dual kits will be fair game for the individual releases then. Hence, the Pz Kpfw II and 38(t). And the Marders ... ;)

Hobbylink has had the range on preorder for six months with no release date in sight. The two tanks mentioned are not a part of the new range at all, which makes me wonder if they just grabbed those mini dioramas from a cabinet somewhere because they had no new sprues and nothing better to take to the show.

Just jumped on the HLJ website and the Panzer IVH and StuG IV are limited to 1 per person. Well that buggers that then..... not worth the postage.

I notice with great interest that Dameya are bringing back their etched metal tracks suitable for the Panzer III & IV series.
Shame that their products are so hard to access in the west. I hope somebody like shelf oddity or brengun will produce an equivalent one day.
