Dragon Saladin Armored car
Posted by Rhino on Saturday, May 18, 2019 3:44 PM

Now with retirement, I finally get to sit back and enjoy the hobby once again.  I built the Dragon Saladin kit almost out of the box.  I could not live with the exhaust system being as basic as it was so I did rebuild that and I added a few extra tarps and fuel cans.  The camouflage is for a Honduran Army 2010.  The figure was converted from a DML US army kit and the future dinner is from Tamiya.  A fun build with the only real challenge being the fragile attachment os the wheels and getting all six to sit flat.   If I build it again it would be on a dirt terrain, which would improve my language during the build.

That is nicely done. I had not realised anyone had done this subject, i'm still awaiting the saracen. I might have to grab one of these.

Do you have any more pics.

Thank you and yes it is a decent kit.  I tried to post more than one but was not able, I guess I have not fully figured the site out yet.  Here is a side view and I will add a rear view in another reply, to see if that works for me.

Thanks,

Very nicely done Rhino! I never knew that those were used by the Hondurans.

It would be interesting to compare that one to the now-ancient Tamiya kit.

Built a few of those, they weer ok, but you could tell that they were only "skin deep."
