Features


Dragon’s newest 1/72 scale kit set features an Sd.Kfz.251/7 Ausf.D and four German panzergrenadiers. As far as possible, this set reflects the original scenes photographed on 18 December 1944. The four figures are completely new toolings, and benefit from the level of detail that was incorporated in their 1/35 scale ‘brothers’. The grenadiers are depicted enjoying a cigarette in a lull after their successful ambush. Each is well researched and sculpted to carry as much detail as possible in this scale, with a great variety shown in their uniform items. The soldiers are accompanied by the Pioneer variant of the famous Sd.Kfz.251 halftrack, complete with assault-bridge sections. This kit is finely detailed, and offers possibilities such as the rear doors or vision ports being left open or closed. Convenience has been guaranteed with features such as DS tracks and road wheels that are molded as a set. This novel set recreates the events of that historic day in this otherwise obscure Belgian village!


In a desperate last gamble, Hitler sent massed German units through the forested Ardennes terrain in an attack against Allied forces in the Battle of the Bulge. One small event that played out during the epic battle was the fighting in the small Belgian village of Poteau, a junction where the roads from Recht and St Vith meet en route to Vielsalm. On 17 December 1944 this village was the site of a huge traffic bottleneck as American troops moved to take up defensive positions while stragglers retreated from the fighting. Kampfgruppe Hansen attacked and captured the village on the morning of 18 December, and later that day the German soldiers succeeded in ambushing a convoy from the U.S. 14th Cavalry Group. What made this event famous were the numerous movies and photos taken by German propaganda cameramen on that occasion.
