Asking some advice on whether to add some parts or not.
I’m building a Frankenstein M60A1 using various 1/35 parts in my spare bin (from Dragon, ESCI, Academy, and Tamiya). I’ve noticed these particular parts (don’t know the exact name but look like horizontal lifting eyes?) appear in some reference photos and not in some M60A1s. Also, AFV Club’s kit depicts it, but Takom’s kit doesn’t. What is it and should I add it?
Tank1812, I was only talking about the horizontal lifting eyes. Not the vertical lifting eyes as depicted by R5, 6, and 7. A18 (horizontal one) is not used in Takom’s 2132 kit b/c that may be representing the pre-1974 earlier generation hull. Vertical ones are there of course.
My Frankenstein M60A1 in progress.
What you see in gray plastic - Dragon M60 parts, in yellowish tan - ESCI, tan - Tamiya, green - Academy, white - scratch-built Evergreen. Made the Xenon searchlight cover with aluminum foil. Combo of all spare parts I had. Ready for painting now. This will be a generic USMC M60A1.
Any feedback/correction suggestions welcomed.
