Military Miniature Series 30th anniversary
In September of 1968, the Military Miniatures Series started with a set of German Tank Crew figures. Through the support and hope of modelers from all over the world, the series has come to include 230 items. We would like to take this chance to express our deep gratitude. This winter, in celebration of our 30th anniversary, we proudly present "The Dragon Wagon".
About the Dragon Wagon
During the Second World War, the development of heavy tanks continued at a fevered pitch. To deploy these tanks to the front line, or retrieve them when damaged or broken, the necessity of a large-scale transport vehicle was heightened. In April of 1943, the U.S. started production of "The Dragon Wagon", one of the biggest tank transport vehicles of WWII. Constructed around an armored cabin and a sturdy trailer, it boasted a loading capacity of 40 tons. Also assisting in the transport of boats for river crossing operations, the Dragon Wagon was a great advantage to the advancement of the Allied Forces.
