Which version and what era are you looking to build?  Those factors will make a differance as to the bext one.

I've never built an M-1.

 

Which version of an Abrams? A plain Jane M1, the latest Panda kit.

A Desert Storm era M1A1?

Post Desert Storm/early Iraqi invasion M1A1?

Later M1A1AIM or M1A2SEP?

Building the Meng M1A1 AIM right now and I have to say that it is probably the best kit I've ever built.  Everything fits together perfectly and simply.  The instructions are decent for the most part.  And from what I've read from Vodnik's site among others, it's one of the more accurate kits, too

So, something to note...just started on the tracks for the Meng M1A1 AIM.....while the tracks they produce are works of art in and of themselves, they're a touch fiddly...anyone got some tips on how to put them together efficiently?

Wasn't able to find one.  However, I've been enjoying this kit so much that I bought another copy.  Perhaps I'll do a WIP thread when I do that.....and actually follow through with it....unlike the Academy F-4N Phantom....that then got thrashed by my dogs before I could finish it.
