Yes, Dragon has released them again. I believe these are new tools.

That would be nice! Hoping for something without the horrible PVC tracks...

What blog/site did you get the image from? It would be interesting to investigate more!

Not from the Dragon site, that's for sure. Whilst not entirely clear from the photo, it looks like we have a late production StuG IV, two Pz Kpfw IVs (an Ausf D and an Ausf G), a Jagdtiger, an sIG.33 and two King Tigers (one with a Porsche turret, the other with a Henschel turret).

All types were already present in the Dragon/Cando collection.
I think these aren't new tools.

These are definitely new tools. Remember how they packaged them in the rectangular box with the white plastic casing? Now these are on sprue trees...

There also appears to be a large red sign that says "New Tool" in two languages :lol:

Wow! Impressive lineup for start. Cant wait for sprue photos...

Bit scared about the Dragon price policy... :( The old ones were very reasonably priced, but Dragon prices went up since...

Is it just me - I don't seem to be able to see the boxes in sufficient resolution and detail to actually convince my selft that they are in 144...???

Hopefully not a reference to any employee that was in attendance at the time ... :twisted:

Agree with BD99 that it's impossible to detect "1/144" anywhere on the boxes (I suspect the yellow rectangle on each contains this vital info). The boxart and layout is definitely at odds with anything in Dragon's 1/72 ranges so let's look at the other model on display, a 1/400 scale model of the International Space Station (ISS). The length of the original is 72.8 metres, so a 1/400 model should measure out at 18.2 cm. In contrast, the Panzer IV (between the three trees) is 5.92 metres long in reality, which equates to 4.1 cm in 1/144. Does the panzer look just under a quarter of the length of the ISS? Does to me.

I rest my case, Your Honour. :ugeek:
