Dragon 1/35 scale M7 Priest (midproduction)
Officially known as the 105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M7, the self-propelled artillery piece was dubbed Priest by the British army because of its pulpit-like machine-gun mount. The moniker is in keeping with church-themed artillery names such as Deacon or Bishop.

Now, Dragon’s Priest arrives with a rifled metal barrel, metal braided cable, photoetched-metal fret for screens, DS tracks, and markings for three vehicles.|
