Dragon 1/32 Bf110C-7 (Wing Tech)

Dragon has announced the launch of a new 1/32 scale kit of a Bf110C-7, this version being a fighter-bomber based on the C-4/B. It was powered by uprated DB 601P engines and had two ETC-500 centerline bomb racks that could carry two 500kg bombs. This model is notable in that it’s the first “Wing Tech” kit, Dragon’s name for a new line of aircraft kits that parallels the famous “Smart Kit” line of 1/35 scale armored vehicles. This means the kit is brimming with high-tech innovations such as slide-molded components and multimedia parts, yet all the while remaining easy and pleasurable to assemble. Panel lines are molded in three different depths, while the sophisticated engine is fully detailed. Individual parts have an excellent fit, plus all the detail inside the cockpit is fully represented. This Bf 110C-7 is a fitting successor to Dragon’s first ever 1/32 scale aircraft kit – a P-51 Mustang – and with its Wing Tech identity, it surely marks a milestone in this scale of model aircraft!

The twin-engine Messerschmitt Bf110 heavy fighter served in the Luftwaffe throughout WWII, despite pilots bemoaning its lack of agility in the air. Later in the war, however, it found a niche when it was developed into a successful night fighter. Indeed, it served as the backbone of Germany’s Nachtjagdgeschwader, with the first night-fighting units operating as early as 1940. Bf110 aircraft had a sizable hand in claiming 2751 RAF bombers shot down in 1943 alone. In a single dramatic night in August/September 1943, night fighters destroyed no less than 123 RAF bombers. This shows the effectiveness of the Nachtjagdgeschwader, which seriously blunted Allied bomber raids over Germany. However, it came at a cost – for example, 15% of crews were killed within the space of three months in 1944. The top night-fighting ace was Major Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, who claimed 121 victories while flying Bf110s. The Bf110D was a long-range heavy fighter or fighter bomber, while the improved and up-armored Bf110E was designed primarily as a fighter bomber.

Dragon has previously released a Bf110C in its 1/32 scale Wing Tech series. Following on from this popular model is a 2-in-1 kit of the Bf110D/E configured as a night fighter. Modelers thus have the choice of building a 1/32 scale Bf110D or E aircraft equipped for night flying. The appearance of these dedicated night fighters is quite different from the Bf110C, with distinctive radar antennae fitted on Bf110Ds nose. In this kit the antenna array is offered as photo-etched parts should modelers so wish to use them, although the standard plastic option is already highly detailed and finely molded. Special parts are further provided for the Bf110E, including new nose and rear wheels, a newly tooled machinegun and nose antenna. Modelers can also elect to depict a camera-equipped Bf110E aircraft. Whichever version of the aircraft that fans select to build, they can be assured of the best quality and highest level of detail, as is the norm in Dragon’s Wing Tech series.

Aviation modelers have been waiting a long time for Dragon to release another fantastic model of the famous P-51 Mustang. At last the wait is over! Dragon’s new kit is a 1/32 scale kit of the P-51K. The American P-51 Mustang entered service midway through WWII and became a hugely successful and recognizable fighter. Most were employed as bomber escorts in the European theater, with the definitive and most widely produced version being the P-51D. The P-51K was essentially a P-51D with a different propeller, an Aeroproducts four-blade 11’-diameter hollow steel propeller. These propellers had a different blade shape to the more common Hamilton Standard, though they weren’t as reliable. Some 1,500 P-51K fighters were manufactured in Dallas. The P-51D and K arrived in Europe in mid-1944 and they quickly became the primary fighter of the US Army Air Force (USAAF).

Following Dragon’s earlier releases of 1/32 scale P-51D Mustang kits is this long-awaited P-51K variant. The kit features a brand new canopy and, obviously, a new propeller. To increase its attractiveness even further, the fighter is fitted with brand new 4.5-inch M10 rocket launchers. This three-tube M10 rocket launcher allowed the Mustang to terrorize German forces and vehicles on the ground in Northwest Europe, for example. As before, this kit is highly detailed using state-of-the-art engineering and molding techniques. No effort has been spared in producing a kit brimming with detail, and yet it’s one that remains easy to assemble. Cartograf has provided a series of outstanding decal markings, all that modelers will need to finish off Dragon’s latest 1/32 Mustang family member.
