More about our NEW "Smart Kit" series:
The word “Smart” in relation to modern electronic applications (smart ID cards, smart kids etc.) and even the automotive industry (smart cars), is closely associated with images such as “Advanced”, “Convenient” and “High quality of life”. Such aspects are closely in tune with Dragon’s new specialized series of model kits.

The saying, “Work hard or work smart" definitely applies here, with Dragon’s engineers having cleverly developed a kit that will make the modeler’s life a lot simpler. We call this series the Smart Kit, because it is a customized solution especially engineered to make building easier and more fun, without sacrificing any quality in the end product! Dragon’s enormous expertise in design and engineering is producing more advanced kits with less individual parts, making them immensely simpler and faster to assemble.

About the Panther G:
The German Panther G had a crew of five, and possessed sloping armor that was 80mm thick on the hull front, and 100mm thick on the turret front. When combined with a lethal 7.5cm Kw.K.42 L/70 main gun, and two 7.92mm MG34 machine guns (one coaxial with the main gun, and one in a ball mount in the right bow).
