Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

I must admit that I initially thought that this was going to be a model of Serenity... This tank is pretty cool, though!

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

Notice how the long barrel is camo painted to look like a shorter "regular" 75MM Sherman barrel....German tank and anti-tank gunner crews tried to take out the long barreled Fireflys first, as they knew they could do more damage to German armour.......

It's well done DML for releasing this beauty...we had hoped for it for some time, and now it's here.

It was also capable of killing a Tiger, but didn't arrive until late 44, early 45! For Normandy era your looking at the Firefly if you're going Tiger hunting, although there were a few Churchills with 6pdrs firing APDS too!

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

This is the most exciting news to me since I started this hobby! I would have preferred a Firefly Vc, (which would have given us an M4A4, and could then have been used for my Italian campaign troops). But this model was at least used by the Canadians, mainly in Holland, so it's a must-buy for me.

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

I better start shaking the piggy bank any news on price? Is it in kit form or pre- made.

Woops just seen its a kit and its 499 dollars, which means it'll be 500 sterling over the pond. I still want it though.

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

Could still use Allied tank crew figures though......wonder why nobody, DML or otherwise, isn't doing any.....they'd make nothing but money on those.......

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

1/6PD you ain't kidding about that. If DID or Solder Story came out with a solid tanker with US jerry cans or a Brit with some Flimsy's they could make some noise in this hobby. Not sure why that is so hard for these companies to figure out but that seems like a no brainer to me. Build a Tank and make a tanker figure. I just wish someone would make more Jerry cans for all of these tanks that are now hitting the market and a endless supply of bits and pieces for these tanks would be a plus as well.

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

Nice release! I just wanted to have more room.
I think we'll probably see more 1/6 tankers and related stuff when the upcoming movie Fury come out.

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

The best choice for the next tanker would be to have the olive denim tank overall, the warm weather choice for Brit crews. Nobody's made it yet.

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

It seems that we have it all figured out (no pun intended) when it comes to tanker figures......but the manufacturers don't seem to be interested.....strange.....

Oh well, at least one of them is making tanks......wouldn't have believed that 5 years ago.....

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

I saw this yesterday and did a double take. Looks great in the picture. I don't think my modeling skills would do this justice...especially at $500.

Totally in agreement on the lack of Allied tanker gear out there. Someone would do well releasing a uniform/helmet/jerry can set. When the 21c ones pop up on eBay they bring stupid money.

Re: Dragon 1/6 Firefly

The most frustrating parts is, DML did a U.S. gas can, so they have the molds. But they don't seem to want to use them to make any more.......

Actually, DML made one on their Fred Upton figure, they just made it in the wrong colour is all!
