I will be doing the review build for Armorama as soon as it arrives today or tomorrow. If I understood correctly, the company is going to look at my review as soon as Darren publishes it, so I am shooting to submit it by the end of the week.

Received mine about 2 weeks ago from HobbyEasy. Kit looks really nice. Going to match it up with the Modelcollect HEMTT M893A2 w/M870A1 trailer.

I hate to tell you, the M983a2 and M870a1 are used for transporting Engineer equipment. If you want to transport the M1A2, you should us an M1070/M1000 tractor/trailer unit.

Thanks for the heads-up. The M983A2 is new to Modelcollect so I haven't ordered it yet. I'll look for the M1070 in 1/72 scale instead.

Thanks panzerIV, I might just get the HEMTT anyway - that dozer combo sounds interesting.

It goes together really, really well. Only tip I'd give is to assemble both halves of the track off the model.
