Hi John, gotta love the Abrams! New decals and camo -so maybe this will not be Iraq?

I'm looking forward to more!

Cheers

Another great modern choice John.
I like Abrams in desert yelow with heavy weathering.

The paint is on, still got a few fury bits to tidy up and I broke the machine gun barrel but should be right to do some weathering over the next week.

Green


Brown


Black


No more bluetack

Hiya John:

That looks real nice. Were there any problems with the construction on this? My little Tiger had a couple little issues, and I was just wondering. And I like the camo job too. Is that the Australian scheme?

Gday Gary
The tiger kit I built in last years Braille Scale Bonanza was like a miniature 1/35 scale kit, some etch bits, metal tow cables and everything just fitted right. But I can’t say the same for the Abrams, its a bit toyish compared to the tigre kit. The back engine plate did not fit real well and some bits don’t look quite to scale, but the tracks are great.

I’m finally done! cheers I have been away from home with work for 18 days of this month so I haven’t had a lot of time to spend on the build so there definitely won’t be a base for this one. When I can find some kangaroo decals at the right scale I will paint over my poor effort at the red bunnies and replace with decals. Embarassed







Can’t help myself, here’s a couple of photos of a very little panzer III I did a couple of years ago.

Nice work John! The Abrams is a big tank, especially the turret. It's about the same size of a small tank itself!

The camo is beautifully done also, good job mate.

Cheers

Hi John:

That turned out fantastic. And I wouldn't worry to much about the roo decals. You can just tell everyone that it is from the "KillaBunny" Brigade Wink .
