Old CinC XM1

Post by panzergator »

I'm still looking for a number of the old CinC XM-1s if anyone has some they wish to part with.

I would like to think that I can identify tanks fairly well, but I'm honestly not sure what the CinC XM-1 looks like. I have some of these, but I don't know if they are supposed to be XM-1, M-1, or M1A1.

I checked an old CinC catalogue looking for the product code of the XM-1, however it wasn't listed.

I was on ebay anyway so I had a trawl through looking for CinC XM-1. I also checked Noble Knight and Legions IV Hire. No luck.

I pic of two CinC XM-1s appears on the website https://www.microarmormayhem.com/Units_US_MBTs.html

Olfarty! That's what I'm looking for! Unfortunately, that website hasn't been active for quite some time.

I've just this moment looked into I-94 Enterprises "Surplus Bin". No luck!

Thanks for trying. They've not been made for a long time, so finding some requires a lot of diligence and patience.

Panzer, it's a long shot, but you could try contacting Legions IV Hire (if you haven't already) and seeing if they acquired the moulds when they bought the C-in-C range. If they have, they might be willing to cast a few for you - probably at an elevated price, but...

Mortis, that's A great suggestion, which I will try. I'm not looking for a full battalion, but might, if he could do that.

I did, or I think I did. Old picture.
I did not paint this XM-1 this way. I may have re-painted the tank.
Haven’t seen it in years.
