15mm Modern Abrams finished
Well, I've finally added an Abrams to my collection!
This was a 1:100 scale Johnny Lighting tank. I'll be honest, it is pretty fantastic. Unfortunately, I also hit a snag with it in that after I painted it, when I went to dip it the dip was thick like syrup and black! Dammit! I rubbed off as much as I could and then resprayed, but the spray paint was now too thick... and as I tried to scrub it off I broke the 50 cal off... so overall I am really unhappy with how it turned out:( One of my more depressing toy soldier moments.
Here is a shot from the back so you can see the stowage.
And here is the stowage when I had sculpted/glued it all on. So much good detail, lost in several layers of stupid spray paint and a single layer of like-glue varnish:(
Here it is next to my other vehicles... suitably bad ass, if you ask me. I DO need to go in and add a little grass to the stand, though.
