MBT-70 (Kpz. 70)

Dragon Black Label, 1/35 scale
by Brett Green


Here is my latest and probably last completion of 2016 - this is Dragon's 1/35 scale "Black Label" MBT-70.

I detailed the kit with the Voyager Model photo-etched and turned brass upgrade.
The crew figures are Valkyrie's lovely West German Army Tank Crew (Deutsches Heer, 1970-80 Era).



I started this model in 2015 and had construction complete by December of that year, but new releases kept pushing it back down the pile. I finally found some breathing space to finish it.

Construction was actually very straightforward. The DS flexible tracks are a bit long though, so one link was removed from each length to increase the tension.



I have written this one up for an article in Issue 131 of Model Military International magazine.



MMI is now also available as a digital magazine that you may read on your PC or Mac home computer. This means it is less expensive, and that the issues are available easily on day of publication the World over.
