Dragon 1/35 discontinued kits was created by Andrew
Last night Dragon announced a large portion of their 1/35 kits are to be retired from production. Not sure why, maybe some are old and will be replaced with new items? Maybe on sold the toolings to another manufacturer to free up capital. Who knows? I guess only the DML accountants :lol:

Here are the images of the discontinued kits









Quite gutted with the amount of StuG kits disappearing. Hopefully a retool/rebox is coming

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Wow, I have a number of those in the stash and half finished on the shelf. I wonder why they’re ditching some of those. I missed getting the beautiful upgraded Nashorn. Leaves the Tamiya one in the shade. Maybe they’re moving them on to make new “Verses Tagon” kits with interiors etc. A few there I wish I could get.

It's possible that the moulds have been on sold. I know the newish Zvezda King Tiger is a DML rebox. Especially when it looks like family groups (StuG III/IV, Panzer III, Sd.kfz.251/etc) DML are discontinuing

Agreed. So is the Zvezda an older or current DML?
