I can find a few photos with 2 cupolas there, on M48, M60 and Abrams, but no proof of any machineguns in them, so they were probably no more than access hatches.

This build began as paint mule to test out some painting methods that I thought were rather bazaar.
I had fallen into a slump, at the time, and had pretty much lost all interest in modeling in general. I think maybe it was caused by having too many starts and no finishes at the time.
Anyway, I was watching Youtube model building videos in order to try and get my Mojo back. One day I tuned into this one site
"hpiguys workshop" he was building the Revell Sherman from 1955. This perked my ears up, because I had also built that model as a child.
After the build he sprayed the whole thing with a $3 can of quick drying Rustoleum Black Primer from an aerosol can,
following that he painted the tank with acrylic paint thinned with window washer solution. I mean the kind of acrylic paint that comes in those plastic squeeze bottles you get off the Walmart craft center rack.
I thought to myself, "This is heresy, if you apply stuff to your model that does not come from a thimble sized bottle that you paid at least $5 to $10 for, you are doing it wrong."
However, being one that tries to be a seeker of truth I thought I would experiment. Besides I am also not one to turn down saving money.
So, I visited Hobby Lobby, scored me this kit and some cheap acrylic paint (bottle of black and bottle of yellow). Visited Walmart and got the primer, I had window washer solution at home already. Mixed up an olive drab color.
Built up some assemblies and proceeded commit heresy.
I was surprised how well the primer layed down smooth and tight. I had never thought an aerosol spray can would deliver that smooth a finish.
Next came the acrylic paint. Mixed thin with window washer solution it sprayed through my airbrush nicely. It also adhered well. I tried some masking tape tests on it and it passed. I am a convert.
I don't know if this will be satisfactory on aircraft but it worked well on this tank.

Soooo, got the long awaited M48 AVLB and it's sort of a disappointment. The M48 chassis is ok, good details, exactly what you would expect from the other Dragon M48 kits.

Unfortunately not the same can be said about the bridge itself. The plastic is different in quality. Seems more brittle, has a different glossy look, the details seem very rough, almost like these sprues came from a different manufacturer (a bad one, from the '80s).

It's the same situation as their Egyptian Sherman kit. The Sherman parts are ok, the AMX-30 turret is baaaadly molded. I have an album where you can see the difference in parts quality. The same is here with the AVLB vs the M48 parts

Right now I'm almost convinced they've outsourced these parts to some very cheap manufacturer. And don't get me started on accuracy. It's oversimplified, the inner structure has the support struts only on the most exterior parts, everything else is a solid panel (instead of a X).

I really hope Takom or some other major player puts out another AVLB as this one is a big stinking POS.
The review on moxingfans shows the same issues.

No problem. The idea is that for the price Dragon asks you kind of expect a top product with good details. And you get a good M48 with a poor bridge.

Actually I've been studying the sprues and I think I know why there is such a difference in quality. The bridge sprues (same as the AMX turret in their Egyptian Sherman kit) are a "short run" production as opposed to the steel moulds they normally employ. What this means is that it's waaaay cheaper to produce these sprues as long as you're considering a limited run and not large mass production. Unfortunately the quality is not very consistent between batches with a short run and the details are not very sharp either. You can see this with other short-run manufacturers like Modelsvit, Roden or some older Special Hobby kits.

So why the short run then? Well, Dragon relies very heavily in their business model on reusing the same sprues all over again.
With the AMX turret in their Egyptian Sherman and the AVLB bridge parts here, someone at Dragon thought that they will likely not re-use them in other kits and probably also figured out the kits are not going to be high-sellers. So a short-run will cover them and keep their manufacturing costs low.

All very good and dandy but then they asked a high price for their kits, more inline with a normal manufacturing process. And that proves once again that the new business practices of Dragon leave much to be desired.
Too bad Dragon is no longer maintaining the standards which have made them famous but fortunately there are other players in the market right now so Dragon can kiss goodbye to my wallet.

Hi Hauke
Well done used look!
21. January 2013, 12:31
Sören Mårtensson
The Norwegian Splintercamo looks very much like the Swedish Camo.
21. January 2013, 15:23
Duncan Cook
Very wise words and a wonderfull modell.
21. January 2013, 15:37
Hauke Krapf

Markus, thanks for your positive reply.
Sören, yeap, I am aware of it. The Swedish splinter camo looks exactly like the Norwegian one. Even the colors are the same.
I would like to build a Strv 104. Let's hope that Bronco or Hobby Boss will release one in the future, as the Hobby Fan conversion is quit expensive!
Duncan, thank you very much for your comment. I see that you grapped what I would like to state.

As a new member on this site I was surfing for anything "Norwegian" and found your very nice M48A5. For others who want to model this type it might be of interest to know that the searchlight was never used by the Nor Army. Norway only had 14 M48A5s. One platoon was manned by conscripts and the two other by reserve troops.
1. April 2017, 21:39
Hauke Krapf
Erik, thanks for your advice! Sometimes I'm a dummy!!! As the M48A5 had the TTS sight, the AN/VVS 1 searchlight was obsolete!!

Cool project, Jeffrey! Do you have an idea how to deal with the issue on the enginedeck? Not easy to remove the cast-structure without removing the details...
7. July 2015, 13:14
Jeffrey Riedesel
Well Holger some parts of the engine deck should have a casting texture. I'm going to sand it and then use my own mix of putty to put a different casting texture on.
