I would just like to see a standard 1/6 Dragon Jeep out here & I would be happy.

The armoured one Escort posted the link to looks good though.

this both in combination with the Dragon M2 kit and you have a fantastic result.

For the price of those Dragon jeeps in 1/6 they are not very good. They seem to be their 1/35th scale jeeps scaled up with only minor improvements to details as far as I've seen. For $250+ that thing better be museum quality and they just are'nt

Sad news! The Verlinden did this method too with its 1/15 kit with a lot of mistakes in it. I don't understand why they aren't able to get a correctly restored jeep for their jeep models.
