Great looking model of a great looking tank. It looks like a space ship.

Armor guys - why are modern tanks being built with shell traps under the turret front?

Nicely done and LARGE. That'll take up some acreage on the shelf!

Could have to do with the driver being able to get in and out.

Knew a guy in the Army that got his ear partially ripped off when the turret of his M-1 swung, caught his CVC and sheared it right off

Thank you Frank.
Yes, it takes quite some space. But being big it delivers the feel of heavy !
