Dragon Announces New 1/72 Boxer

So says the Russian 1:72/1:76 scale AFV page, one of my regular stops on the Internet of scale modeling. Exciting news for the dozen or so of us modern 1/72 armor modelers!

Dragon appears to be going for a mercifully and sensibly low parts count. Of particular note is the single-piece, slide -molded suspension and lower hull. Fully a third or a half of the parts in Revell’s 1/72 Boxer and Spähpanzer Luchs kits, in contrast, are various arms, springs, links, shafts, and whatnot, which of course, can’t be seen and offer all kinds of opportunities for misalignment and general crookedness.

Looking forward to seeing this kit in the coming months.
