M1 ABV The Build

Conclusion
Although this was a challenging build, it still was a fun build. The plow proved to be the most challenging aspect of the whole build with all its parts and being movable. This part of the build would be the only reason I would recommend this kit to someone who had a few kits built under their belt. Also, the issue with the tracks is or was not a turn down for me. If you don't want to fix the issue, you could easily replace the track with any of the after-market track sets. Anyone who loves the M1 Abrams would love to have this in their model collection.
