Gun Turret

Dragon turret is like a muscular body builder. Tamiya gun turret is like boxer who lost weight.

Mantlet



Fender

As for the Dragon kit, fender parts separates with the hull part. This kit includes fender support anchors. Tamiya kit doesn't include this parts.

Front Face

Notice to difference of light guard frame.


Engine deck

Dragon's shape is the center bulged a little. Because Tamiya's intake slit has a mold with the backside, you can select the opened situation. (But this kit doesn't include an engine part).

Tracks & Wheels

Tamiya includes track of a soft belt type. Dragon is a connection link type with plastic. (notice to a hole of center guide parts).


As for the price, Tamiya is expensive a little. But Tamiya has easy assembling.
This kit includes 2 figures and equipment accessories. (The same sprue which MM250 and 251 includes).
Doragon needs an hour in assembling.
We will need perseverance in assembling of tracks. But, those have a good mold.

I don't know which kit is accurate.
I like both kits.
