1/144 Mini Armor Series 2nd Collection - Modern AFVs - Dragon (14052)



 1/144 Mini Armor Series 2nd Collection - Modern AFVs - Dragon (14052)

Announced in 2020, seemingly to be re-issued Oct-Nov 21

Dragon has a number of 1/144 scale armored vehicles in its Mini Armor range, and we previously released an assortment of German tanks in this scale. Now it’s time for modern AFVs to feel the love, and Dragon has collected a fine assortment of well-known American and European armored vehicles. These AFV kits may be quite small but they are certainly big on detail! There are ten kits in total in this collection, all of them representing famous IFVs and tanks of the modern day, and all of which are still in current military service.

The beauty of this scale is that vehicles are rapidly assembled and vignettes, even extensive ones, can be quickly created by adding buildings and/or trees. Because their size is so similar to the popular N scale used by railway modelers, there are plenty of accessories and buildings readily available to create such vignettes. Not only are these popular AFV subjects available in a handy and convenient assortment, but the kit prices are extremely reasonable too.

Packing: 10 kits per each inner


1/144 M1A1 w/MINE PLOUGH (14141)
1/144 M1A2 (14142)

She was designed by Huang Xuhua, and derived from the Han-Class SSNs, with an extended hull to accommodate four missile tubes.
