Not perfect but still a cool looking tank
By wonderboy_693 October 27, 2014
The M103 was a heavy tank built in small numbers during the 1950's. Dragon's new kit is large and impressive. The general parts fit and quality are quite good. Though the kit claims to be an M103A1, it is really closer to being a T43E1 pre service variant if the sight bulge on the turret is removed. Some details on the kit could have been better such as the turret profile. The barrel is too short but an aftermarket replacement is available. Those counting on accuracy may feel let down by this one but the average builder will have an enjoyable build.

Very nice model, some accuracy issues
By rarem37 September 15, 2015
The M103A1 is a very nice model. It goes together well and would be a good build for anyone from beginner to advanced skills. The only reason I would not give it 5 stars is the front of the hull, turret and main gun tube length are not quite right. This model looks like a M103A1 and will pass muster with most builders. It has been a long wait to get one of these in 1/35 scale and in plastic.

Not at all accurate, OK fit, turret can't traverse fully OOB
By michaelg951 May 29, 2016
Sadly this is the only M103A1 in plastic. Nearly the entire kit is inaccurate; almost everything would need to be replaced to make it accurate. The turret won't fully traverse built OOB and is completely inaccurate. The bulge under the turret for the commander interferes with a part on the engine deck.It fits well though and looks like a M103A1 when finished. Looks OK but not recommended at all.
