  1. The A2 has the Commander’s Independent Thermal Viewer cupola, which is not evident on the model pictured. That looks more like an M1A1 to me.

    But then again, I am a gigantic dork.

  2. You’re right, we pulled the specs from a 1:72 scale M1 Abrams. But still the machine gun and hatch is missing. we didn’t want to get uber specific.

  3. Awesome! How do you plan on getting it out of the house? :-)

    The only thing that could be better would be one made out of FedEx boxes…

  4. answer to jswilson:we made it to disassemble in 9ft sections. i like the fed-ex idea, i’d heard that they do deliver to the services overseas.

    as for the camo, i dunno could be. maybe sub-urban less city more strip mall.
