The Dragon 1/35 Desperate Defense is a plastic model kit in the Dragon WW2 Military Plastic Models range. The German defenders in the Korsun Pocket in Russia fought desperate pitched battles to avert annihilation during the long retreat back to the Fatherland. Fighting against overwhelming odds in 1944 they grimly hung on.
Each lifelike figure strikes a vivid pose as they fight for survival against the Red Army. This sets six figures are clothed in a variety of late war uniforms and are armed with a range of weapons and equipment (made with Dragon Styrene). Each features separate hands, feet, collars and even photo-etched uniform and equipment parts. Each figures face shows a different sign of desperation with full detail.
