Dragon Armor 60197 United Kingdom Challenger 2, Upgrade Armor, with Desert Rats, Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, Iraq 2003

Review:

The Base: The base was nice. I like that the "road/building" is separate from the black base and can be moved to different angles or removed all together. The problem I found was that the "wall" didn't fit very well. There is a noticeable gap on the right side of it. It also tilts rather far back.

The Tank: The tow ropes are separated from the vehicle (often models have them glued down or are made a part of the hull). The turret won't turn clockwise as it runs into a piece at the rear. I have to force the turret up in the back to have it rotate. The main armament is rather loose, so unless you want the armament down or all the way up, it won't stay. When taking the tank out of it's display case, the tracks stuck to the black surface. The lines in the vehicle surfaces are very crisp and clear. The paint scheme is very nice and is nicer than my Forces of Valor version.
