    A Tamiya M1A1 Abrahms and an Academy M2 Bradley from Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Both were built from the box.  The Tamiya was a simple kit to build, while the Academy was much more difficult.  Academy kits seem to be engineered with less support and thought to the builder, and the instructions also leave a bit to be desired.  However, the detail quality is uniformly high.  Both are weathered heavily, to simulate several weeks of hard travel and fighting on the road to Baghdad.  Some details, including machine guns on both vehicles, have not been added.
