Dragon, Meng-Model and Takom show us their "Super Heavy Tank" scale model. These armoured fighting vehicle are beyond Heavy tanks. This is just a small sample. There are others made by other manufacturers, but I think be enough to get you started. Thank all manufacturers and modelers.
This must surely be one of the most astonishing kits from Dragon this year! The excitement begins well before modelers open their box lids to reveal Dragon's first ever T28 Super Heavy Tank! And when they do view the contents, their jaws are sure to drop!
The size of the model is simply overwhelming - more than 300mm long! The double track runs are made from brand new DS tracks, and the outer tracks can be detached just like the real ones should a modeler decide to opt for this configuration. The gun barrel is produced in aluminum. This was a monster of a tank, but Dragon has been careful to fill it out with sharp detail and easy-to-assemble components. The American T28 takes Dragon's title as the new super heavy tank of its 1/35 kit range!

Building review by ScaleModelAlberta:
The E-100 was never completed by Henschel, but Dragon has succeeded in finishing off the massive E-100 in 1/35 scale. In a magnificent “what if” item, this E-100 is made to exacting standards in Dragon’s 1/35 range of plastic kits. The model is made even more exclusive by the inclusion of infrared night vision equipment, meaning it is able to reign in the hours of darkness.
This kit offers unparalleled potential to modelers wishing to create a “futuristic” scene and vehicle, and to let their imaginations run wild!
- Night vision equipment made from multiple parts for -maximum detail
- Bonus Nachtjager figure set
- Photo-etched part for engine deck grill
- Cartograf decal
