Description

War is characterized by long periods of boredom punctuated by frenetic bursts of activity. Eating is obviously one way of passing the hours of inactivity – even if army food isn’t that stimulating – and this is what the latest 1/35 scale figure set from Dragon depicts. The box contains three German Wehrmacht anti-tank crewmen eating their supper. This is such a typical scene on any battlefield, but so few kit manufacturers have bothered to represent it. Nevertheless, Dragon has captured a mealtime to perfection with this set subtitled ‘Chow Time!’ The three crewmen aren’t the only content of the box, for there is also a beautifully detailed PaK 35/36 3.7cm anti-tank gun included as well. This cannon emanates from a previous Dragon release, but the accompanying soldiers certainly bring it to life.

The three soldiers are well sculpted in greatcoats and caps, suggesting an autumn or winter scene somewhere on the frontlines. Two crewmen are digging into the mouthwatering contents of their mess tins, while another is attempting to open a can with his bayonet. The set’s accessories such as a loaf of bread and canned food will prove valuable for all manner of diorama scenes. This domestic-looking set fills a gap in the range of plastic figures currently available on the market. Modelers will doubtlessly find this set appetizing as a standalone vignette or, alternatively, with the contents mixed and matched in a larger diorama. Serve it up, Dragon!

Models are supplied unpainted and assembly is required.
