Are you familiar with this piece? It is not 1:50, but significantly smaller. Back in the day a couple of guys scaled them out and they were actually ~1:57 scale as I recall. They are absolutely closer to 1:60 than 1:50 and look very small on the HET. They are also of much lower quality than the typical Wan Ho (Sword) model and came in a generic white box.

There are several (Tamiya, Zhengdefu, Aoshima, Micro Ace, Academy, Arii, etc.) 1:48 Abrams model kits available, and any of them would look much better on the HET in my opinion.

Thanks Digger, I managed to find 2 of the Sword M1 Abrams both versions thanks to this forum, I am now collecting many military models not just construction now thanks to Chuck and his peeps expanding and setting the bar on some very detailed models. I did find other M1 Abrams in Resin as well after your post thank you

Hey Mikee, nice to see you back. Are you starting from scratch or did you keep some models? CAW

Yes Gregg, the three of us go back to 2001 I think. I just retired form collecting, yet I keep up with new stuff. I still have some things left that are particular to me. See you in the funnies! CAW
