Ted
A critical error with this kit, only comes with 8 road wheels and 16 brass stamped rings. When it should come with 10 road wheels and 20 brass stamped rings. SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT. Thanks Dragon!!!

John Van Kooten Yes, it's a fairly big mistake on Dragon's part. They are (unfortunately) well known for their bad Product Quality Inspections...

On the other hand, it is easily solved by contacting Dragon Care or your local representative and request the additional required parts
30. October 2015 at 06:16:47
M.Julian Marles Pretty lame. So much for their "rah rah we are the best" propaganda...: P

30. October 2015 at 10:43:32
Rui S Thx for the heads up, DeadTed
30. October 2015 at 12:59:44
M.Julian Marles Anyone know then, if kit #6218 also suffers from this shortage?
31. October 2015 at 04:46:14
John Van Kooten No, kit #6218 is fine in this regard :)

However, there are two versions of this kit. The original release and an updated one, as can be seen in our database:

2004 release: Sd.Kfz. 265 kleine Panzerbefehlswagen, Dragon 6218 (2004)
Sd.Kfz. 265 kleine Panzerbefehlswagen (Dragon 6218, 1:35)

2005 release: Sd.Kfz. 265 kleine Panzerbefehlswagen, Dragon 6218 (2005)
Sd.Kfz. 265 kleine Panzerbefehlswagen (Dragon 6218, 1:35)

I don't know the exact differences between the two but I did find a reference to the J-sprue having been deleted from the updated 2005 version. That means you can't build the flat topped version anymore (the one without the extra turret built on top).

So unfortunately, as per usual with Dragon's strategy of updating kits and in no way marking them to be recognised as one or the other, it's down to luck and/or whether your reseller has old or new stock determining which version you will get if you buy it. There's no way of telling which one it is until you actually open the box.

Fabian D. All these issues make you wonder if Dragon has a quality-control department at all...

Concerning the #6218:
Original relase has a "full-rubber" idler wheel (which is incorrect)
The 2005 relase has the correct split idler and a slightly differnt lower hull (with more PE). Pic of the included correction sheet: [img1]
Apart from that I´m 90% shure both kits are identical. So you can build the version without the cuppola. If anyone needs to be 100% shure I can dig out the instuctions for 6218 (new).
31. October 2015 at 09:59:09
John Van Kooten Fabian, I personally think they do not have a QC department. Way too much errors in their production line. I think with at least 30% of the Dragon kits I have (420 at the moment of this writing) something is wrong / missing / defective / flattened / broken / lost / no longer included / etc. ... And that is not an exxageration!
Maybe that is the reason why they are including increasingly less in each new release. Less chance of errors on their part ;) and of course increase the price by a factor of two because the kits are now coming with less errors! :D that is, excluding the instructions, of course ;)

Anyway, thanks for clearing up the unknowns with this kit!
31. October 2015 at 13:05:25
M.Julian Marles Yep..thanks for the info..much appreciated! :)
31. October 2015 at 19:51:37
Steven Van Dyck Apparently Dragon got word from this error and added a second sprue L to the kit. Luckily I got such a new box. So somebody at least is watching us...

John Van Kooten Hi Joerg,

Just to make you aware of it in case you had not noticed (although you probably already know): this kit has 8 road wheels on the sprues instead of the 10 you need. It was a mistake on Dragon's part. Anyone that bought this kit can (and should) contact Dragon Care or their local representative and request the two road wheels to be send to them.

Again, just to make sure you are aware of the issue and to let others know as well :)
30. October 2015 at 06:09:50
Rui S Thx, for the heads up John
30. October 2015 at 11:55:16
John Van Kooten No problem, Rui. You're welcome

And to be fair, DeadTed also mentioned this same issue, before I posted about it here :) link here: SCM Newsfeed

Joerg R. Thank you John, I know this fact.
