This,to me,came way out of left field. A DML M48A3.

I wonder how well this kit will compare to the new AFV Club version.

They may be running out of those type of subjects. ;) ;D

Hmmm... a Mod B would make an accurate M48A5 a bit less work than starting with the Tamiya kit. Yeah, there's the Academy 'A5 but I always thought the suspension and front hull shape were a bit "wonky".

Although I don't have the raging hate for the Tamiya M48A3 that some folks in the armor modeling community have, it'll be nice to have a kit that features today's level of detailing as opposed to one tooled 30-odd years ago.

I did notice that the kit in that link does not have the holes in the sprocket,and no canvas for the main gun mantlet,and no canvas for the .50 MG. I have no clue as to what the B designation means.

As I understand it, the Model B designation was used for tanks that had received a number of component improvements and standardization that the initial M48A3 didn't always get. In many cases, A3s had been converted from older "flat deck" tanks and retained features that weren't common to the later M48A2 and M60 family tanks. Just one example is the use of the headlight "pods" that came in to use with the M48A2 and continued through the M60A3. I'm sure a more dedicated M48 fan can explain it better but that's what I know.

Not a new release but an older kit I'm happy to see return:
US M46 Patton

I've always liked this tank but it's been frustratingly hard to find the last few years.

Hopefully they will also offer the M103A2. 

How about an M103 RISE Passive with laser rangefinder feature from the M60A3 and a thermal shroud for the gun tube?  Or swap out the entire main gun for what the Abrams is packing with the L55 tube from the Leopard 2A6 just to be different. :)

Another one to consider would be an M103 with the 152mm gun/missile launcher from the MBT-70/XM803.

Have to start someplace.  Hopefully the page at ScaleMates will have more information as it becomes available :)

PMMS has the same picture above plus one more that shows some of the kit features under their "New Kit News" section for Dragon.
