FirstLook

 

I would have expected that Tamiya would have actually produced this version of the Dragon Wagon by now, but it is pleasing that Trakz has now released a 1/35 scale conversion to the soft cab version of this big tank transporter.

Trakz 1/35 scale Soft Cab conversion comprises 28 resin parts and a fret of photo-etched parts.

 

 

The resin in my sample displayed quie a few air bubbles and some warpage in a few parts. A bit of preparation and test-fitting will be required to get everything lined up. The photo-etched parts include the window frames and look good. Instructions are quite straightforward.

 

 

Trakz' 1/35 scale Soft Cab conversion offers lots of potential for both WWII and Korean dioramas, and is very welcome.

Recommended for experienced modellers.

Thanks to VLS for the review samples
