History and This Kit

The Magach tank was produced and based on both the M48, and with the Magach 6B on M60 tank hulls.  I took this review assignment because of my interest in the M60 Patton tanks. Having built several over the last few years and AFV's M60A1 kit #35060 and Takom's M60A1 with the Explosive Reactive Armor, I was equally up for the challenge of the Magach 6B.  This latest version of the Magach 6B has mostly aspects that we modelers can't see: the British 105mm gun and 750hp diesel engine.  As the M60 tanks were modified into the Magach 6 series the most noticeable difference is the explosive reactive armor panels surrounding the turret and the frontal hull area, and the addition of a M2 50 cal. and two 30 cal. machine guns on the turret.
