USMC M1A1HA with Mine Plow

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

This is Trumpeter's USMC M1A1HA Abrams with mine plow, which I have built to depict a tank from B Company, 1st Marine Tank Battalion, 1st Marine Division. This tank operated in Bagdad as part of OIF. Built OOB with stowage items from spares box and Echelon decals (ammo box decals from ACM). The CIPs were pilfered from Trumpeter's 'M1A1HA Abrams' kit.

I took some of the photos outside and some inside on a sheet of cardboard covered with dirt, however I plan to build a proper display base for it soon. Also, it doesn’t look as dirty and some of the decals look a bit silvered in the photos, however this isn't the case (lighting perhaps).

In some of the photos you may notice the smoke dischargers are missing. This is because I removed them to replace with aftermarket ones (once they arrive).

ps. I'd love to add figures as well, but unfortunately I have not yet mastered the effective painting of them icon_redface.gif

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for your comments gents. I really appreciate it.

I have just fitted it out with aftermarket smoke dischargers, which look much better now.

Thanks Karen. It is rather large and I'm still yet to make a base for it....
