M1A1 Abrams Kits Available for Pre-Order (With Bonus Minifig!)
Brickmania is pleased to announce (at long last) that we are releasing the much-requested and long-anticipated M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank kit available in both dark gray and tan versions. (click either image to go to order page)
The M1A1 Abrams was adopted as the Main Battle Tank for US ground forces in the early 1980’s. Being the culmination of four decades of tank research, the Abrams represents a quantum leap forward in tank design: It is highly mobile, has an incredibly robust armor package, and packs a lethal punch that is deadly effective both day and night. The M1A1 version of the Abrams fought in this configuration for Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
Additional information about this Brickmania custom Lego® kit:
This brickmania kit features two opening hatches in the turret, fully rotating turret with posable main gun, articulated LEGO tracks and realistic suspension.It also includes a tank commander minifig plus two BrickArms machine guns (including a M2HB customized by Brickmania).
This is a mid-grade Brickmania kit that favors playability and sturdiness over the extreme details of our premium grade kits. We feel that adding your own details is an important part of the building experience and have intentionally left this out. If it were not for the large size of this model (and bigger price tag) we would consider this a Durabuilder kit.
All brickmania kits are made from new condition LEGO Bricks and come shipped unassembled with printed, full color-building instructions. Each kit also includes a certificate of authenticiy signed by the designer and comes packed in a sealed box.
This kit is available in both dark gray (BKM807) and tan (BKM808).
The kits will normally be shipped only with the tank commander minifig. As a special pre-order bonus, we will include a second gunner minifig with all kits paid by August 28th, 2012.

Can u please restock these!!!!!!!!!!!
Small correction, for the Abrams the main armament it is a 120 mm cal. not the 105 mm thats from the 60’s & 70’s era.
My bad – 105mm gun was only used in the original M1 configuration. Will change the description to match the M1A1 spec.
