1⁄35Tamiya M26 Dragon Wagon and M4 Sherman
IntroductionThe task of building the M26 Dragon Wagon and trailer was somewhat of a mega project to take on for this is the biggest model I have built to date. The inspiration for building the M26 was due to covering the American Army formations and the recovery of the armoured vehicles during WW2. The M26 entered service in 1943 and had a number of upgrades from an armoured cab to an un-armoured cab and after WW2 it was handed over to various European nations and the Japanese self defense forces. I wanted to portray this vehicle in its intended role of recovering of a mine damaged M4 Sherman. The intention was that the mine had damaged the lower side of the Hull and needed to be returned to the rear for repairs. The M4 was limited in markings as to place the vehicle into a particular theatre of operations.
