Dragon Diecast 1/72 Armor, 60016 United States M1A2 Abrams, 4th Infantry Division

Review:

I've picked up a few modern armor models lately, just to add some variety to my collection. This one is a really nice piece with all the "extras" that it has. The bags hanging around and on the tank really add to it, in my opinion. It's too bad it doesn't come mounted with the MGs mounted on the turret roof. Seems rather silly to have to glue them on when they could easily already be placed (Forces of Valor's is mounted out of the box). It does have some weathering on it and the decals are very clear. This one also has a nice weight to it as it was produced during the time that Dragon still made models with some metal.
