While tanks and other armored vehicles typically get all the glory, mechanized units would rapidly shudder to a halt without the necessary supplies. Similarly, it’s important to have a way of shifting heavy vehicles from one front to another. That’s why railways are so important, and they were certainly critical to the German military in WWII. Indeed, the Deutsche Reichsbahn was instrumental in keeping Germany in the war. Things got even more difficult on the Russian front because the latter used a different railway gauge, and Reichsbahn workers had to convert more than 16,000km of Soviet track to the German gauge between June and October 1941 alone. To commemorate the importance of railways, now Dragon has brought together a 1/35 scale collection boasting some famous rail wagons.
There are six different 1/35 scale Dragon kits in this assortment, many of which have been virtually unobtainable for years. Some of these railcars even come with rail track and embankment. Each one is obviously a German subject, and any one of them will contribute to an impressive rail scene. With these kits, Dragon is keeping modelers right on track!
