Dragon has released a lot figure sets in their time and here Gareth McGorman takes a look at U.S. Army Anti-Tank Team in 1/35th scale from 2001.

This review might have been more relevant 10 - 15 yrs ago - when it was released! Figures are still not bad, but are not up to current standards. Hands are a bit thick, and heads should be replaced.

I am sorry but I do not see how the age of a kit has anything to do with the need for a review. If you are looking at buying a figure set of any age their are very few of them that have been reviewed.

I actually really like this set and have bought three so far. Some of the sculpting and molding is exceptional. For my weird purposes it is an extremely useful set.

I get your point. Tamiya's MM001 has never had a review, either!

One out of 227 viewers find this review very useful. … me.

Darren, How come manufacture kit/item numbers are never included in the reviews? That would be useful as well.

The kit number is displayed in the box at the bottom of the review.

Doh! Of course it is! Missed it by viewing it on my phone. Now I know where to look.

Thanks!

Here's an oldie though goodie! Updates are just part of the hobby when it comes to replacing heads, etc. As to the missing review on Tamiya MM001 (was that the Tiger 1?) I might actually have one in my stash waiting for my nephew to discover model building before letting him have it!

I have no idea how long ago this kit was released and yet I am thankful for the review. I've never seen this set; Dragon has - I dunno - a hundred or so sets, of which I am only familiar with a few dozen. So this set could be a brand new release as far I am concerned. And I am glad they created this set. Aside from the Tamiya US Combat Team set and perhaps some lead or resin figures, I don't know of any 1/35 US bazooka team sets.
