28mm Australian M1A1 Abrams Tank

It has always been my plan to paint up an Australian M1A1 Abrams Tank if I could find the right decals.
Having taken a week off work for the kids holidays, I got cracking on one.

The kit is the Empress M1A1Abrams tank, and the small red kangaroos on the side are from a set of 1/72- 1/48 mixed RAN decals AD706 from " Model Kits Online". They are perfect as the red kangaroo is separate to the main emblem. Link attached below.

The Australian version does not have the Commander's Thermal Image Sites that is included in the kit.


Enjoy the pics.








Now all I have to do is convince Paul  from Empress Minis if they could release an Aussie M113AS4 APC.
