Hi,
Here's my refurbished Tamiya M60A2 depicted in a Reforger Exercise.
Cheers

Great job. Love the paint job! Great amount of weathering too.

Just goes to show that an old kit can be made to look great. Agree with the others that the paint job looks very nice.

Love it! My only A2 is the same old Tamiya kit, heavily modified, but I never did get the ass end correct. Nice job.

Thank you for the comments.
The tracks & quite a lot of pieces are from the spares of an Academy Kit. The search light details are scratch built.

It looks very nice. Great job on it. I can't tell from the pics, but did you correct the CBSS (Closed Breach Scavenger System) bulge at the rear of the hull? Tamiya hosed it up by having you add two rectangle boxes where there should be a bulge that goes all the way across the hull and underneath.

Nice build.It is late now, but in the B&W photo above, the aircleaners are straight topped,not with the angle down on the front. On our A2's (1/37th armor), we had 2 extra 5 gallon cans on the loader's side,you can add 1 more at the front edge of the bustle rack.

The tracks & running gear, camo painting and overall weathering are all top notch work! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the pointers. But sorry to disappoint, but the rear end is all Tamiya's.
I've ran out of steam towards the end after working on it on & off for years & just wanna finish it.
Cheers
