The AFV Club M60A1, in IDF markings, YKW, with an added 30 cal on the cupola, pictured in Desert Eagle Magach6 A/B. It's OOB except for the 30 cal, almost complete. Aside from the outer return rollers, I still need tow cables, antennae, optics, and I'm sure a few other things. Yes, the basket top rail is bent on the right. If I try and "fix" it, I'm sure it'll break (again) so I'm thinking of hanging something over it, or just leaving it alone, calling it "crew abuse". I hope to finish tomorrow, if all my ducks line up.

I say leave it bent. It's a reasonable spot for a bend to happen, right at the upright.

bent is fine . The baskets take a lot of abuse.

Tow cables and shackles are in the works, and I need to get a gloss on the cupola view port lenses, but that's about it.
