1/35 M1A1 Abrams "Combat Cadillac" first completion of the year
As per the title this is my first completion of the year. Its Meng Models M1A1 AIM. My model is based on 6 different Tanks I had pictures of so put them into one model (my model my rules). In the main it depicts a Tank belonging to the USMC complete with wading stacks. The .50 on the main gun barrel is an Army fixture, but I decided I like the look, so decided to fit it on my model. Also the ring gunsight on the Commander's .50 machine gun is not installed on the guns in real life, but I added one because it looks cool. The markings are for USMC tanks from different time frames, but again its my model so I can do what I like with it. I really enjoyed building this kit, and will be buying other variants of the "Combat Cadillac" as its my favourite modern Tank. So what's next?
