Dragon bring a new take on the "B" model Patton...

The M48 “B” modification was used extensively in the Vietnam conflict extensively as the main battle tank for the Us Marine Corps and US Army - and Dragon has their latest kit of this very type in their sights as their latest kit announcement…
The M48 main battle tanks was designed to dominate the battlefield in a possible war with the Soviets in Europe – Well it turned out the Patton wasn’t used in the fields of Central Europe in WWIII – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a popular tank. 12000- odd were made from  1952-59 and Dragon has made a 1/35th scale version of the “B” Modification with additional armour on the exhausts and tail lights, and a raised commander's cupola.
