Dragon’s model of this German warship is a Smart Kit, meaning it is incredibly well engineered to achieve maximum levels of accuracy and ease of assembly. Just like its 1/350 scale sister, this new kit receives a brand new bridge and associated detail. The guns and turrets are all reproduced very well even in this smaller scale. The entire hull has also been produced afresh specifically for the Z31, and, as is Dragon’s norm, the kit allows modelers to build a waterline hull or full-hull version. The kit exhibits quite a number of important differences to the previously released Z39, and it will indeed make an ideal patrolling partner when they take to the sea!
