Academy 1/35 scale M1A1 Abrams
January 6, 2014 in Armor
This is a kit that I built for a buddy. I took these pics before I applied the custom decals that I had made depicting a 2ACR tank from the Battle of 73 Eastings. I should have took more after decals, but they were just the bumper numbers and the chevrons…
Anyways, I had to scratch build a few things because I either lost them or they weren’t in the box. The gear in the bustle rack is from an accessory set generously gifted to me from the president of the local club chapter, who is also my friend. The sand on the base is soil from my front yard.
This was my first ever armor kit, and I am mostly pleased with it. Of course, it wasnt until after I gave it to my buddy that I got a chance to talk with a tanker! Well, as long as my buddy liked it, then we can call it Mission Accomplished!
