Dragon's okay



Nice work. I found it interesting that Takom molded the two exhausts on the back deck as a solid piece where dragon opened it up. I'll post a pic later to show what I meant



You can see it in the sprue pictures. Each muffler and exhaust pipe is one solid piece. In this age of slide molding they didn't even mold the pipes as separate tubes. Wow. But I really like the shape on the canvas covered barrel.



Actually, this is what I was referring to



Wasted effort on Dragon's part because it's completely hidden by the pipes to the mufflers which were the actual exhausts glowing all red from heat.

I've got one incoming. I've wanted to build a USMC M46 or M26 for a long time. Now's my chance.

Anytime. I got the lower hull mostly done, hoping to get some more pics up in the next day or so, if real life gives me some free time
