It's been a while, but Dragon Models have just announced a NEW Gen 2 figure set.
The New set (listed for release in May 2009) is:

DRA 6385 - Totenkopf Division (Kharkov 1943)

Sculpted by Hirano Yoshitaka the new set consists of four (Mid-War) figures as they would have appeared in the fighting round Kharkov. Although this kind of figure isn't particularly new, there ARE a number of useful features which should guarantee its popularity.

First of those is the inclusion of the much-seen (but rarely included) MG Tripod. In this set it's portrayed in the 'transport mode' - carried on the back of an infantryman.

The other feature, which we've also become accustomed to, is the mixture of uniforms - dictated by the cold weather. Mixing and matching this set with others will give a good variety of the lack of uniformity which is to be seen in archive images of the period.

All the usual features in the Gen 2 range are present - good mix of weapons and the inclusion of PE for epaulettes and weapon slings.

I don't think that this artwork is done by Ron Volstad which is why it looks odd for DML boxart. C.

Nice to see Hirano Yoshitaka (of the Yoshi line and on Alpine's list of sculptors) doing some work for Dragon. Actually I'm a bit surprised - I thought they'd gone the CAD route with their figure line as well now. I'll be picking this set up Rudi

This set would go well with the other DML Kharkov set which unfortunately has a very similar machine gunner too. I like the folded tripod of the HMG.

Being Gen2 you should be supplied with enough equipment not to have him carrying a MG42. I don't see that as a negative, but an opportunity.

I'm working on a Kharkov dio, so this is good news!

I used to be sick of all the German stuff coming out, but i'm starting to change my mind. This looks like a good kit.
