Dragon Armor 1/72 Sd.Kfz.263, 2.Div.(Motorisiert)

In Japan this week is the 52nd All Japan Model and Hobby Show and among a number of announcements Dragon Models are making about new releases in their various ranges of model kits comes this news of two new items in their Dragon Armor series of 1:72 read-built models.  If you buy their construction kits, they offer a number of options for finishing with colours and markings.  They then usually release ready built models in the Dragon Armour series, using the different options they provide for in their kits.  That is what we see here.

In this instance we have an Afrika Korps finished Panzer III Ausf N from 1943 and a Panzer Grey command vehicle based on the 8-rad (8-wheel) armoured car series, the Sdkfz 263 on the Eastern fornt in 1941.  Going just by these pre-release photos they look like they will be good.  I have to admit the 8-rad series of armoured cars is one of my favourites so I might well go out and get this one myself when it comes out here in the UK.
