Default AFV Model M1 Hull Kit: Contents



Seriously. Screw you USPS

So what's in the package? Well lets open it and dive into the awesomeness that is German engineering. The following is the contents of the AFV Model M1 Hull Kit designed for the Hobby Engine M1A1/A2. Pardon the crappy photography.



First up is a rather nicely presented set of instructions... In German... They assured me it was in English, but whatever. The pictures are really good and I can use Babelfish to fill in the rest.



Next we have the main components of the hull itself. They don't photograph well at all so I took a picture of them from the instructions. There are the four sheets, they are all 2mm thick. Doesn't sound like much, but even holding one sheet it still seems strong. Plus alot of the parts are reenforcements. It will be very strong when built.



Next we have the geaboxes. Tamiya, metal and 380 motors.



Tracks and drive sprockets. Tracks are plastic Tamiya Leopard 2A6 tracks and the drive sprockets are accurate to an M1A1. They are not the Leopard 2A6 drive sprockets, those are different.







Next up are the Road Wheels, Rubber Linings and Resin Hubs respectively.



Suspension arms. Note the sprues still attached, a dremel will fix this.











Various bits and pieces.

And finally, this last one does not come with the kit, but is still pretty essential to the kit.



Resin Smoke Grenade Launchers and photoetch mounts to replace the pitiful and undersized ones that come with the HE M1A1.

There should be a build thread in the next week or so.

Hi BarkingSquirrel,
Glad to hear you finally got your package. It looks to be about as beat up as mine was. I see you got the smoke grenade launchers too. I forgot to order them when I bought my kit and had to get them at a later date. The are much better than what is on the HE M1A1.

Good luck with the build!
