I also really like the Camo, I think the result is excellent and does not need a dusting of OD, unless you wanted it.

How do you like the steel tracks overall? I'm contemplating if it's worth...

I can confirm that the Abrams Pro Plus Edition has a TK6.1S, not a TK6.1. I can't attach photos here for some reason, so I hope it's alright if I cross-post to my thread here with photos of my tank...
