My first!! Academy 1/35 M1A2 Abrams TUSK II

Recommended Posts

I’m no stranger to the scale modelling scene and am more used to aircraft if the usual scales 1/72, 1/48 etc.  This however is my very first armour build and glad I picked this one.  The Academy 1/35 M1A2 V2/TUSK I/TUSK II kit is a dream to build and the three piece slip moulded gun barrel and “rubber band” tracks are nice features.  I’m not too enthused on the thought of multi part tracks that the likes of Meng and others are coming out with.

So far it’s 95% built with just the hang ons to fit after painting eg spare road wheels and tracks, jerry cans etc.

Paint is now starting to on for which I used AK Interactives OIF/OEF weathering Set.

Looking great!!  I'm sold on the kit just for the tracks...i actually stopped building tanks because of the tracks building process.
