Spotlight Review

"Nice older model--- suitable for MERDC"
The M60A2 is indeed, a dated kit, but nevertheless is a fun build. Like other reviewers have indicated, the turret basket is a bear to put together and I'd highly recommend SuperGlue and doing one side at a time to make it come out right. The hull is the same as any other M60 series so if someone gets bored, swap out the A2 turret with the A3 turret with them painted in different MERDC patterns. I'd recommend sanding the side of the cupola mounted .50 cal. It's a tight fit and if having it move is important then take the time to do this otherwise it's wicked easy to break off the barrel when adjusting it.

"good older tank kit"
This kit is a nice build of an M60A2. It is one of the older kits in the Tamiya line, but has held up pretty well. As with all Tamiya rubberband type tracks, I put a couple of staples across the track join to hold the ends together. Another hint is not to glue the drive sprockets in place before the track is added. If you thread the track around the wheels and fit the sprocket in place last with the track around it, it save stretching the track and possibly breaking it.

"Awesome looking kit when assembled"
The real life tank is very cool looking and so is the kit once assembled! It is an older Tamiya kit, but has held up well. The large search light on front can be illuminated with an LED for some dramatic lighting (although I believe the real ones were infra-red. Nice crew poses too.

"good model"
this was my second model build. the only difficulty I had was with the basket contraptions that wrap around the rear part of the turret. getting the very thin pieces of the frame over , under around and through the proper places was a real challenge along with getting the smoke extractor in place. I broke some of the railings but what the heck it's not perfect but I did get it finished. overall it was a good build. I'm 67 years old and semi retired and my hands shake just enough to make things harder than they should be. I haven't progressed to the point of using an air gun yet so I hand paint. started painting the tank olive green and didn't like the brush strokes. I happened to have a can of modern desert sand so I sprayed the whole thing that color. the spray leaves a much, much better finish. I know this tank never came close to any desert but it's my model and I'm proud of it. next is an a 10 wart hog. wish me luck.


This is a re-release of the M60A2, which was previously released as a limited edition item. The tank was

nick-named the "Starship" due to some technological developments which were rather advanced for its time (or, as some stories have it, due to complex maintenance procedures). The newly-designed low-profile turret was fitted with a 152mm main gun designed to fire both conventional rounds and anti-tank projectiles. Sadly, however, the M60A2 saw a relatively short production run after its manufacture commenced in the 1970s, and was withdrawn from service in the early 1980s.
