Guy's M1A2 Build

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.



P.S. I already posted alot of these pictures in the gallery before I found out I had a vBench account. oops.

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!
I will be looking forward to new updates.

Road wheels

Work on the road wheels started. The wheels started well enough.



What a pile of road wheels!



Ridges will need to be cleaned off on all of the individual wheels, man what fun.



Now that's a nice set of road wheels.



Sprockets are next.



Completed.

Next I show the Hull, See you next time.
