Dragon has announced an exciting new series of model kits. Why are they so exciting? Because they appear in the fantastic large scale of 1/6, offering modelers unparalleled detail and realism. The first item in the new range is a Kettenkrad, also known by its more technical name of Sd.Kfz.2 Kleines Kettenkraftrad HK 101. Originally designed and built by NSU, the unique Kettenkrad was a cross between a motorcycle and a halftrack. Most of these fascinating vehicles saw service on the Eastern Front, where they could handle the mud and snow of that harsh theater. Many were also used by the Luftwaffe as runway tugs for their aircraft in order to conserve aviation fuel.
With a length of only 3m, the Kettenkrad was a very compact vehicle. Dragonís 1/6 version is even more compact, but itís just bulging with realism. There are many advantages in working with this larger scale, for instance it has individual track links that are workable after assembly is complete. Small parts like the Notek light, taillight, rear tow hook and sprung seat can all be reproduced in glorious detail. The 6-speed gearbox inside the hull is made from a resin casting in order to accurately replicate the complex shape of the original. This 1/6 scale model is just the right size to impress viewers, yet remains compact enough to display on a shelf or desktop. Naturally, the scale also allows the vehicle to be crewed by readily available 1/6 figures. This is just the first item in Dragonís new line of weapons and vehicles, but it sets a very high benchmark in terms of quality and accuracy!
