1/72 M1B1 Abrams MBT

So there was a proposal to up gun the Abrams in the late 70s, add an auto loader, and change the drive train to a diesel. There are a number of images and drawings floating around the web and I decided to build one. So behold, my take on the baddest tank on the block. CATTB turret layout, 140mm cannon w/ auto loader, featuring turret mounted mini-gun, revised power plant w/ generator hanging off the rear-end. It was a fun to design and build. I printed the turret via shapeways and it was designed for the Tiger Model 1/72 U S Army M1A2 TUSK II ABRAMS.
