A major 1/35 scale kit release from Dragon is the Flakpanzer IV Ostwind. The Ostwind (‘East Wind’) was a self-propelled anti-aircraft system based on the chassis of the Panzer IV tank. The main armament was a 3.7cm FlaK 43/1 cannon mounted in a six-sided open-topped turret that could traverse 360°. An order for 100 such vehicles was placed in August 1944, with such vehicles being necessary to counter enemy aircraft that freely roved the skies due to Allied air superiority.

Dragon’s Ostwind kit is fantastically detailed. To be most useful to modelers, this kit represents a standard-production model. The hexagonal turret called a ‘cookie tin’ by German soldiers is made by two-directional slide molds and features the correct scale thickness thanks to Dragon’s Razor Edge technology. The turret also bears true-to-scale weld seams. The one-piece FlaK 43 gun with a hollow muzzle is finely detailed and is produced by slide mold. The track links are 40cm Magic Tracks, specially designed for easy assembly and they come with full detail. Finesse is added with photo-etched components like engine-deck ventilation grills. This kit uses Dragon’s phenomenally detailed Panzer IV kits as a suitable platform to show its true artistry. Whether displayed by itself or in an action-packed diorama, this high-aiming Ostwind will grab a lot of attention!
