Saladin Mk.2 build – Part 1:Introduction

The vehicle

Saladin_duxford_show_400

I reckon that this is a classic British vehicle. This kit will end up with my Dad, whose regiment used the Saladin in the 1960s. [1] [2] [3]

The kit

I appreciate that Dragon are going for a simpler, faster assembly process with this range. This kit has got some criticism for oversimplification or omission of certain parts. I accept that – and you can find fine examples where people have augmented the kit – but I am building this one “out of the box”. [4]
