Tarkus II, M60A1 1/48 kit bash. Kitech & Monogram
Not knowing what was in the Kitech kit ,it was supposed to have reactive armor per the USMC [ it did not] it also was a motorized kit, which made the running gear less accurate than the snaptite kits. I decided to try to make it represent a US Army M60 from the late eighties. I took the Kitech M60A1 upper hull and turret assy. and married it to the Monogram snaptite M60 tread and lower hull assy. both kits are equally sparse in detail. As you can tell I’m not an armor guy, but this time I tried a little weathering. I always liked the look of that cold war warrior the M60. Seeing R. Clements excellent M60 build inspired me to finally finish this monster, thanks.
