RFM M1A2 Abrams.

[ SKULIJANI ] [ ALL BY THIS AUTHOR ]
Based on pictures of a repainted Bradley AFV that he had seen, János built and painted this RFM M1A2 Abrams to represent a vehicle during Reforger exercises. He wanted to produce a tank that was repainted with a winter camo, well worn to the base paint. To this was added a muddy, snowy, slushy base, which accentuates the tank's worn look. János started construction in October 2018 at an exhibition as a showcase and describes it as a very meticulous, multi-piece model. The interior and the engine are both beautiful, unfortunately, not much is seen. It was a pleasure to build, but the assembly of the tracks was a little frustrating. One link is made up of 6 pieces, 78 on each side. It can be built without glue and moves but he ended up gluinng it in place because it collapsed several times. He says it's one of the best models he's ever worked with and would strongly recommend to anyone who is interested in the Abrams.

About Skultéti János (Skulijani)
FROM: PEST, HUNGARY

I've been building models since 1994. Mostly combat vehicles in size 1/35, sometimes 1/48 size fighters. After a few years of pause, I resumed this wonderful hobby.
