I recently had a chance to get A good look at some M60s thanks to Chris Hughes showing me around the Littlefield collection. One thing I did notice was the M60 was just as interesting as the T72 and t55s they have there. So here`s a model of a well used M60.
The base kit was ESCI
parts from Tamiya where used
turret from Def
bronco tracks
and a few other bits and pieces.
I`m looking for a little feedback on heavy weathering on modern tanks.

Just enough knowledge to be dangerous, but not enough to help anyone.

Yah, until you see an M60 series up close you don't really have an appreciation of how big and tall they really are. Nice job - I don't mind the weathered look but it would good on a base to give it some reasoning for the muddy look.

Great build and finish!
Your pics show exactly why this is such a beautifull tank. Sleek and strong.

best regards,
