The first ever tank in Dragon’s 1/6 scale plastic kit lineup was the Panzer II Ausf.B (Item No.75025), which created worldwide excitement amongst the modeling and 1/6 action figure community! Now Dragon has doubled the number of Panzer IIs available because it is releasing a second variant! This time it’s a Panzer II Ausf.C, a type produced by Germany from June 1938 through till April 1940. It was operated by a crew of three, and the Ausf.C was the most common variant of the Panzer II family. In the turret were a 20mm KwK.30 cannon and a 7.92mm MG34 machine gun. Panzer II Ausf.C tanks were in the forefront of the German invasion of France in 1940, while a number were also dispatched to North Africa to fight with the legendary Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK).
Even though the original tank was diminutive in size, this kit built to 1/6 scale has an awesome presence and it’s one of Dragon’s biggest ever models. Elements are accurately represented, and building 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, just like on the original tank. Details are accurately represented, and there are numerous new components such as the cupola, turret, glacis plate and engine deck. The turret rotates, the gun elevates and depresses, plus the commander’s hatch can open, just perfect for fitting in a Dragon Action Figure. Collectors will certainly want to clear space to park this scintillating Panzer II Ausf.C!
