EnsignExpendabl I ended up with three PzI command tanks. I bought the Italeri first, for the rusty tank diorama where I wanted a cheap, small kit. Then I saw the Dragon one at a price I couldn't pass up. The MB kit was the first time I ever saw a PzI Ausf. A command tank, plus there was an intriguing sticker on the box: "Bonus Dragon tracks and PE". I couldn't pass that one up either, so here we are.

Upon opening the boxes, I was pleasantly surprised. Dragon threw in the standard sprue full of spare wheels, the Italeri box had a set of link to link tracks inside (manufacturer not labelled), but the Master Box was the most surprising of all. Inside was a whole bag of goodies marked Dragon USA, including four sprues of track links (these might be Dragon, but they're not Magic Tracks) and suspension bits, and a huge photo etch fret, much bigger than the one that came with the original kit (that one is still included in the box and only includes the muffler meshes). Looks like I'll be able to beef up both of the "weaker" kits with superior Dragon components! Stay tuned!

Spanjaard interesting, i am in.
03. May at 05:49:37
EnsignExpendabl I tried assembling the track links... boy, are they a pain in the ass. I would much rather prefer the Academy ones. These are really hard to cut off the sprue without the plastic shattering, and even if you do get intact pieces off it takes way too much effort to actually make them workable.

gorbygould Nice little dio. Out of interest, do you know why it has rip saw on the side? Just seems an odd thing for an armoured car to have - is the Black & Decker Workmate inside?
17. April at 20:01:26
EnsignExpendabl Saws are pretty standard instruments for Soviet armoured vehicles, the T-34 has a big two-man one on the side. I suspect it's used in case you need to make The Log https://tankarchives.blogspot.ca/2016/03/the-log.html
17. April at 20:14:00
gorbygould Thanks for clearing that up. Not being a tanky person I was a little confused.

10. March at 01:21:14
EnsignExpendabl Thanks! I didn't have scale drawings, so I had to guess regarding the size of things. It all came together in the end, so I couldn't have been that far off.
10. March at 06:20:48
Rui S No one is going to measure it, don't bother.
It's a "shame" that In the end only a small part of it will be visible. 8)

EnsignExpendabl The BA-64 has an open top turret, so you can see quite a bit inside even when it's all closed up.
