Team Yankee, A different kind of WiP

Recommended Posts

m1 Abrams!!!!!    Now you are talking some serious firepower!    in this scale those are going to drive you nuts!

Thanks robin.

 

I already did 6 of them, so I am not anticipating to many problems....

I made lots of extra stowage when I was doing the first batch, and I still have the molds....

 

I think this platoon may get the NATO 3 color, as if it was the first platoon to be painted....

it would help differentiate the platoons as well,,,,

Are those crewmen going to go inside the back of the track with the mortars? I'd imagine that's going to get very fiddly, very fast...

It was VERY fiddly getting the guys in the back, especially in the 2 tracks with the Commander's hatch open!

 

4 More M1 Abrams and this project is DONE!

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

What! only one open hatch.. must be the LT's!

Yup it is...

That's the easiest way to id officers in the game...

Go back and look at all the units already done, and you will see the same thing.

With the M113 variants, I used the driver for this

The NCO's have the common sense to close the hatch...

 

Officers like to see what is thrown at them..Oh look a grenade!

While not related to Knarthex's work here is an example of the size of a 15mm miniature compared to a penny. The minis in the photo are from the same company as the Team Yankee stuff being pictured here.
