M1A1 Abrams – Gasoline 1/48th – Fire Team build log5

Almost ready for paint …..

Most of the detailing is finished now. Got the Duke Jammers mounted, pretty happy with the solution too as it’s solid enough not to worry about knocks while handling. Tidied up the APU by fitting a shim to the back and adding access panels and handles. Also added handles to the infantry phone and coms boxes. Replaced the end of the gun muzzle and added tow cables and tie straps to the turret sides. Filled the bustle rack extension with stowage, fitted jerry cans and mounts, tow hook and finally fitted a heavy tank tow bar to the front hull.

Still on the to do list is to fill the tops of the Duke jammers, add caps to the smoke dischargers, straps to the rear jerry cans, rear tow cable, loaders armour shield and to finish the CWS.
