Franklin Mint / 1978 Abrams M1A1 Tank / FM Discontinued / 1:24th Scale
You might not expect this model to be as large as it is. In 1:24th scale, as most of Franklin Mint's auto replicas are, the diecast reveals the true size of America's most awesome fighting machine. Sixteen inches long, including the main gun, the model spans the length of two modern day Corvette models. You won't expect its weight and heft either. Good detail is offered with miniature chains on the automated machine gun, rear panels of the tank body, separately fashioned cables on either side of the turret and twin wire antennae. Additionally, wire grab handles are found on the tank and it does have a removable engine hatch cover. While some parts in the engine bay are plastic and not too lifelike, good wiring exists there and also on the commander's machine gun. The hatch is cleverly held in place by tiny magnets. The fender flaps, on the leading edge of the front fenders, are flexible, just like the genuine tank, a nice touch.
