"A couple of famous British weapons of WWII vintage feature in Dragon’s latest 1/6 scale weapon kit. The two weapons included in the set are the PIAT and Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I rifle. The PIAT (standing for Projector, Infantry, Anti-Tank) was a handheld antitank weapon. Based on the spigot mortar system, it didn’t require a propellant to fire rounds. An advantage was the absence of muzzle smoke upon launch, but this was offset by difficulty in cocking the weapon and a lack of penetrative power. The PIAT’s first operational use was in the invasion of Sicily in 1943, and it remained in British and Commonwealth use until the early 1950s. It was 99cm long, weighed 15kg, and was operated by a two-man crew. The Lee-Enfield Rifle, No.4 Mk I was officially adopted in 1941 and was mass produced during WWII. This bolt-action rifle fed by a ten-round magazine fired standard .303 service cartridges.

The PIAT, reproduced in plastic kit form by Dragon, is an accurate replica. The plastic parts are separated as on the original weapon, and they fit together precisely. To make the weapon
look more realistic, the shoulder pad and jacket are made of cloth.

The PIAT is supplied with an ammo case containing three rounds ready for firing. Similarly, the Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk I rifle is well engineered in plastic. Both weapons also come with authentic-looking slings. These British weapons are a welcome release from Dragon, and will look the part alongside similar German and American weapons that have already been released.
