Title says it all, really

 

Looking for advice on the best kit to reproduce a Vietnam-era M48 Patton in 1:35 scale ?

Dragon's M48A3 or M48A3 Mod B mate , lighty ears ahead of the ancient Tamiya kit and arguably the most accurate currently available .

Bare in mind the Mod B doesn't include the AN/VSS searchlight IIRC .

Just my 2P .

Tamiya's M48 is still a nice and simple kit.

It's been said that the hull and turret are a bit too high... both by about 1mm.

Needless to say that you can easily live with it.

And yes, you might need a set of metal tracks.

Both the Tamiya and Dragon kits have band tracks. The Dragon kits are miles ahead of the Tamiya one but it is not worth the £50 RRP. As sonofjim says the mod.B doesn't come with the lamp unfortunately. Legend resin do a lamp and mantlet aftermarket. Legend also do resin sets of stowage and sandbag armour to dress up the M48.

the academy kit of the 90's catalogue (1993 for rpecision) was a rebox of the tamya mould one?
