Dragon 1/35 scale M103A1

By Jim Zeske
Published: July 8, 2014

Cleanly molded in gray plastic, Dragon’s new M103A1 is the first 1/35 scale injection-molded plastic kit of this tank. A wire tow cable and single-piece Dragon Styrene tracks are provided.

The M103 bears a strong resemblance to the M48, and Dragon appears to have reused many of the parts from its recent M48 Patton. I carefully studied the instructions to note which parts to use and which to ignore. The running gear is taken directly from the M48 kit with additional parts for bogies, suspension arms, and shock absorbers.
