I decided to do one as Thunderbolt VII, the last tank used by Lt. Col. Creighton Abrams. I added bits on it to make the customizations Abrams had done.
Thunderbolt VII. Extra armor added to the sides of the turret and hull - I cut out of thin plasticard but I used a small round file to roughen up the edges so it looks more like they we cut from a sheet of metal using a blow torch and welded on.
Shelf added to the back again with plasticard and a jerry can from an F-Toys kit. Wheel on the side is actually from a resin kit of the Italian P40 tank.
Turret has both the normal machine gun plus an extra .30 cal machine gun. I drilled out the turret hatch and put in an Arrowhead American tank commander. The turret hatch is a spare one from a Panzer Korps Tiger 1 kit.
I had previously done Abrams in Tunderbolt VI which was an M4A3 76mm.
