Guy's M1A2 Build
 
6 Attachment(s)
I am building all of the tanks that I commanded during my career in the US Army. I left a Master Gunner after using/commading several vehicles:
M48A5
M60A1
M60A3
M1A1
M1A2
and variations of these vehicles, I want to build these as models as I remember them.
I am starting with my last one the M1A2.

Oh, this one is going to be a treat.
I was a gunner on one of those babies during my last year in the Cav! :thumb:
I will be looking forward to new updates.
