1/18 M1A1 Abrams Tank

Nope, your not seeing things hehe! This is my son's latest fascination! He's growing up fast, and the change from emergency vehicles into military stuff was a shock to me. Now, he watches war movies, memorizes all the names of different rifles and hand guns. I even bought him a couple of gun magaines.

I remember when I was on my 2nd grade, I wanted to be a U.S. Marine, but my dad discourage me into joining. Maybe that's why Kenshin loves the military too! Oh no!! hehe!

I got  a hold of this M1A1 Abrams and it is huge!! Good thing it was made of hard plastic or else, Ken might not have the strenght to carry it.

Where can I get one of these? I was trying to get my son one who is a Marine Corporal and a gunner on one of these bad boys.
