I have built Trumpeter's USMC M1A1HA Abrams to depict two (2) different vehicles. The first one is Platoon Commander, 2nd Platoon, C Company, 2nd Marine Battalion, 1st Marine Division. This tank operated in Bagdad as part of OIF. For this one I used Echelon Decals (ammo box decals from ACM). The second one has been dressed in NATO camo scheme. The smoke dischargers were the spares from the Dragon M1A2 SEP kit (my next project) and stowage items were from my spares box. I have recently ordered a stowage set so I can add few more items.
This is my first real attempt at using paint
