Valiant wrote:Bann, the creativity of building something based on a real-life vehicle is in the technique and attention to detail. Anyone can make an "Abrams" model, but not everyone can do it well. If you searched up "lego abrams Ebay", you would find a Lego Abrams for sale that has six road wheels per side, odd dimensions and a few other peculiarities (when compared to the real vehicle). The challenge for those of us that is our builds on existing vehicles is in our attention to detail, and the techniques we invent and engage to make the model indistinguishable from the source material.
All in all, while I didn't create the vehicle in my imagination, I successfully translated a handful of photos into a physical model that looks and functions the same as it's counterpart. That in itself is a creative process, which many have found difficult to master.

Missed that part on the substance of the model; thanks for the clarification!
