    Hi,
    I've got only one Dragon model, the SturmTiger. And I must say I love that thing. those dragon models are really just perfect in every asset, if you ask me. Problem is they're very expensive, and the Sturmtiger is the only one available in stores in Holland, as far as I know.

    Pictures can be seen at:

    Hi guys,
    thanks for the complement on the camouflage, Jeffry. I just realized I misunderstood the first post in this topic: I thought it was about the Dragon kits you have to assemble yourself, they have quite a few metal parts too so I thought it was relevant. Now I see that you're talking prefab tanks...
    The pictures I posted are therefore of my own, it's sturmtiger I made last summer, so I did all the work myself: constructing, painting, etcetera. I like that a little better than prefab tanks... but they cost about thesame I see now. Strange.

    btw, Jeffry I haven't seen you before on the forum, so welcome! I hope you 'll like it...

    Good job on the kit.

    Jeffery, the best prices I have seen on the Dragon Armor are from $10- $15, depending on the model. I normally get mine here because they're closer to me than any other online retailer:

    I think there is an ad in World War II magazine this month with all of the Dragon Armor stuff. If I remember correctly, they were showing some T-34's and StuG III's. I guess those will be later.

    No, its Jeffrey not Jeffery :angry: :wink:

    Thats a nice website, but they don't seem to have a big collection, very small actually.
    The prices on most online stores seem to be around the 10-15 dollar, not much difference, i recently found a website that was selling a limited edition Michael Wittmann Tiger I with Wittmann and his crew in front of the tank, but they where selling it for $200!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, they must be crazy, you can buy it fr around $60...

    D'OHHHH As you can see, I corrected my message. I'm deeply sorry. :oops: I shall never do that again.
    Thanks a lot! I really enjoyed making it... Watch the modelling section the coming time; I will be posting new pictures of my tanks soon! :D
    all the best,
