Thank you. Haven't looked at Shapeways as much due to pricing but I'll have to keep that in mind.

My plan is:

Step 1: complete the Bravo Company 1-37AR

Step 2: modeling the Alpha Company 1-37AR

Step 3: modeling the Hotel Company 47th BSB (Forward Support 1-37AR)

Step 4: modeling some vehicles of the 40th BEB

Step 5: once M2A3 Bradley are available, modeling the Charly Company 1-37AR

Man, are these present time battle groups or are you modeling a specific timeframe?  I cannot wait to see your artwork on a train- it would be a show stopper.  This work is amazing.

The lack of CROWS on the Abrams, but present on the Stryker would indicate the late 2000s. Edit: Saw a Cougar in there too, so I'd guess 2005-2009. I haven't seen a line battalion with a Cougar hanging around yet (admittedly I haven't' seen that many ABCTs either.)

Hi John, I will stay in present as best i can, but it's not always easy in n-scale.

@pjm20: Yes, I know the CROWS are missing. I will fix the problem and install the CROWS after that.

Not a knock for the CROWS, your models are amazing, especially as small as N Scale. If you're sticking with the present, hopefully 1-37 won't be seeing any JLTVs soon!

I thought the CROWS were being removed from the Abrams? https://www.steelbeasts.com/topic/10373-us-army-to-remove-crows-from-m1-abrams/

We're still ordering parts against these to fix them. Definitely haven't heard anything about not fielding the CROWS.
