The cork for the road works really well too. I really like the detail of the hollow track links where the rubber is going. Really effective.

My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

Just ruined by naivity at the thought of these things being indestructible lmao. But yeh, that is an awesome representation of a burnt out one. Awesome detail with the paint work

The Yanks have lost a few over recent years. I think that they still maintain (so I have heard) that they have not lost an Abrams in Combat. :dry: And by Combat they mean a standard 1 on 1, Tank v's Tank, mano a mano- not the RPG, IED, Mine type Combat.

Have seen a few "burnt out" photos of the Abrams (real and model) when I was cruising the net for reference - your' is wayyyyyy up there in the "whicked cool" catagory! :evil:
