This surprising new model from Tamiya fills a void with a well-detailed, accurate M151A1 model. This release will make any Vietnam modeler happy.

Would this version, in MP markings, have a place with the Dragon M103A1?

I don't know if any 18 MP BDE units were stationed at the same areas as an M103 unit, but the two vehicles did serve at the same time. It would not be out of place to have the two vehicles together, maybe with the same unit markings on them. Something like HQ 6 for the jeep and HQ 66 for the tank, both being the Bn CDRs rides.

Thanks Gino,

After seeing the Dragon M103 with the jeep peeking out from the background I thought they would make a nice pair, couldn't really tell what kind of jeep it was though. Need a break from all the tanks and heaving buildin g so a jeep with be something relaxing

I can see this with Red fenders , either in country or back in the World. Either way, I'll be getting a couple.
