Building on the success of its recent line-up of 1/35 scale kits of the famous M48 Patton medium tank, Dragon has turned its attention to special Israeli versions of the tank. Dragon is thus proud to announce the release of its very first Magach. Notably, this is a 2-in-1 kit, as modelers can elect to build either a Magach 1 or a Magach 2 variant as used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). A whole range of Magachs based on both the M48 and M60 was introduced right through to the Magach 7, with continual improvements made as the result of painful lessons learnt in combat.
This 1/35 scale kit inherits many of the excellent features of Dragon’s preceding M48A1 model, but it has been suitably modified to represent Magach 1 and 2 tanks serving in the IDF. As a 2-in-1 kit, it offers modelers great flexibility, and all necessary parts to build either variant are included in the box. Compared to the M48A1, there are brand new fenders, engine deck and muzzle brake. There’s a generous selection of photo-etched parts for delicate elements such as tool brackets, plus the tank uses tracks made from DS for added convenience. This is a splendid and highly detailed kit of the Magach 1 and 2, as Dragon delves into the fascinating world of Israeli armored vehicles.
