1:72 Scale Plastic Model – M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank - US ARMY - Length: 5.5" (from back to tip of the gun) Width: 2”
This model is entirely made of plastic, this allows for more accurate shapes and details. The model is fully assembled and painted. There is nothing to do other than take it out from the box for display. The tracks are made of plastic and are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
The maker of the model, Easy Model, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. Moreover the paint scheme is done in a "weathered" style where one can see different shades of darker color along particular panel lines and edges to represent oil stains and/or normal wear
These models come in a very attractive window box and are kept in place by a transparent plastic shell. The model is screwed onto the shell by two screws that need to be removed when taken out of the package for display.
These models are not really toys, they are very fragile and will not break if played with. They are made mainly for display purposes.
The box measures 8 inches long by 3 inches wide by 4 inches high.
The M1 Abrams is a third-generation American main battle tank designed by Chrysler Defense (now General Dynamics Land Systems) and named for General Creighton Abrams. Conceived for modern armored ground warfare and now one of the heaviest tanks in service at nearly 68 short tons (62 metric tons), it introduced several modern technologies to US armored forces, including a multifuel turbine engine, sophisticated Chobham composite armor, a computer fire control system, separate ammunition storage in a blowout compartment, and NBC protection for crew safety. Initial models of the M1 were armed with a 105 mm M68 gun, while later variants feature a license-produced Rheinmetall 120 mm L/44 designated M256.
