he Panzer II is the common name used for a family of German tanks used in World War II. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen II (abbreviated PzKpfw II). Although the vehicle had originally been designed as a stopgap while larger, more advanced tanks were developed, it nonetheless went on to play an important role in the early years of World War II, during the Polish and French campaigns. The Panzer II was the most numerous tank in the German Panzer divisions beginning with the invasion of France. It was used in both North Africa against the Western Allies and on the Eastern Front against the Soviet Union. The Panzer II was supplanted by the Panzer III and IV medium tanks by 1940/1941. By the end of 1942, it had been largely removed from front line service and it was used for training and on secondary fronts. The turrets of the then-obsolete Panzer Is and Panzer IIs were reused as gun turrets on specially built defensive bunkers,  particularly on the Atlantic Wall. Production of the tank itself ceased by January 1944, but its chassis remained in use as the basis of several other armoured vehicles, chiefly self-propelled artillery and tank destroyers such as the Wespe and Marder II respectively.

One of Dragon Models' biggest ever model kits is back!

Elements are accurately represented, and building a model in this scale presents a whole new experience for model-makers. Even though the original tank was diminutive in size, this model built to exact 1/6 scale poses a significant presence. The turret rotates, the gun elevates and depresses, and in addition, the commander's hatch in the turret can open to accommodate a tank crewman in the hatch. Modelers will certainly want to clear space on their display shelves to park this scintillating Panzer II Ausf.B model kit!
NOTES:
--This is a glue model kit - does not come assembled.
