Good review, Keith.

I'm somewhat surprised that Dragon or CyberHobby have not released an updates Jarhead Abrams. There are enough differences from their M1A1 kits that you need conversion materials, so I for one would buy a USMC variant that builds well OOB.

The only real negative to this kit that I can see are the tracks, as despite being Magi Tracks they have been attacked due to the end connectors being connected to the track pad. A better inclusion would have been the tracks from the M1A2 SEP kit. Thank you for the review Keith.
