    I wanted some newer models and the Abrams was one of them.
    The M1 Abrams is produced in the USA and it's name comes from General Abrams.

    It is a main battle tank, the well armed, heavily armored, and highly mobile offensive mainstay of modern armored ground warfare. Notable features of the M1 Abrams include the use of a powerful gas turbine engine, the adoption of sophisticated composite armor, and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew safety. It is one of the heaviest tanks in service.

    The kit is in A3 format and consist of loose sheets.

    Then 5 pages of drawings follows.

    And the last 6 pages are filled with parts.

    The kit looks really good with a lot of 3d drawings.The print is not as good as we are used to from Modelik,GPM or Halinski, so there are no 3d print or any other details highlighted on the parts.But I guess on a model like this it's not that important.

    The extras for this model are wheels and the barrel
