Australian M1 Abrams

This is an Australian M1 Abrams. These were purchased second hand from America to replace the AS 1 (Leopard 1 A3). I’ve painted this in the three tone camouflage scheme (Auscam). The kit is the venerable Tamiya M1 and I had to scratch build the rear turret basket.

Having completed all this, I then found out that there are better offerings from Academy with the turret basket that would have saved me some work.
Hey ho, I still had great fun!
Now, how about an Auscam M1 Abrams with Track Width Mine Plough…?

  1. Very well done, Ian!

  2. Many thanks for the kind comments. Still beavering away, I’m going to start getting the painting and load outs done on the other Leopards… or rather a “Leap” of Leopards !!!!
