Hello

Here is my latest model of A USMC tank in training. For the model I used the Dragon Aim kit. I converted it to a Marine Corp tank with scratch build parts and some bits from the Tamiya M1A2 kit,the gear in the trunk is from Legend and some scratch bits. The tank is Brovo 3-1 in Kuwait in 2004. Thanks to Mike Mummey for sending me some details on B3-1 and some images of the tank. I hope you like it.

Man, that looks great, looks like it has had a hard time and is covered in all types of dirt, and rust!! Really well used, abused and dirty, I like it!!
I hope I can get a similar (but less worn look) on mine, and as good a result.
Well done,
Shane

Howdy Chris, that hog really looks the part. I like the rope around the right SGL and the Reaper on the Smoke Grenade Box. You need to add the horizontal Platoon Commander stripe to the starboard side of the gun tube. And it is Mummey with an "e" thank you. Great job all around, I like it.
Outta here, Mike sends . . .

Feel free to chime in Mumbo, but I believe that would be B-31, not B3-1. I guess the Marines could have some new bumper markings I'm not aware of.
