Gino P. Quintiliani takes a look at Legend Productions and declares that they have brought us another great set for the Dragon M48A3 kit.

How on earth do they make those sandbags stay on a half round shaped turret?
Even on a flat topped turret everything has to be strapped tightly.

I would think, that a tank with a load of sandbags like that, once in motion the bags would soon start falling off! (Is this constructive or destructive criticism?)

Maybe they used super glue to hold them on!

It's not that I doubt this - I've seen pictures from Nam with several different tanks clotted in sand bags. I'm just curious how they manage to keep 'em in place?
