Shots of N M1 Abrams kit from MTL

These are like eating peanuts...can't make just one.  LOL  I'll post shots of the photo etch and the decals shortly.  When we release these as separate items there will be two kits per box.

Cheers

Joe

These are M1A2s, right? That's the CITV over above the loader's position if I know my tanks.

Those are too new for 85. But... will I REALLY care, given the fun potential of a string of these heading down the NCR for a REFORGER excercise??

It's how I'm gonna hold myself off from getting a bunch TODAY.

But not necessarily tomorrow.

Also, I'm DEFINITELY going to need one to paint Conrail blue.

These used to be really common across PA to NJ to the Military Ocean Terminal in Jersey City.  You could use them as a detour move.

Don't forget to add a clearance pole across the leader's front porch as these were considered dimensional trains on CR (though ran as MILnnn)

Ooh. A good point.

I figure with the Port of Baltimore at one end of the NCR, there wouldn't be any difficulty at all in justifying MIL trains on the NCR.

These are so cool. We need a 1950’s or 1960’ era tank for our flat loads.

And remember BAE is in York, PA, refurbing military equipment.  If we can get some Bradley Fighting Vehicle, M88 Recovery Vehicle, and M109 Howitzers, we'd be in some trouble.

Yup!

There's actually a car sitting in Windsor St right now with an M60A2 on it headed there to be put out of its misery, and this morning's BAEN dropped off an AA7V for some work.

The last Sherman, the M4A3e8, or "Easy Eight" was the last U.S. variant of the M4 Sherman, and saw action in WW2, Korea, and with the South Vietnam Army.  Here's a nice N-scale model of it:  https://www.shapeways.com/product/56EGDSVQ6/sherman-m4a3e8-n-scale 


So, this could easily and correctly be a 50's flat load.

Cheerio!
