Have fun with it. It can come out looking acceptable, but takes a lot more work than the Meng kit to do so.

I've got the Meng M3A3 plus the M3A3 interior set for it.
Here is a link to my For Sale/Trade List
PM me if you're interested in working something out...I'm open to some stuff not on my wanted list.

FYI Sprue Brothers has the Orochi Deluxe Kit for just under $30 in their 35% off section.

I was leaning ont he Orochi for the metal tracks--still not worth it when compared to the Meng model?



Not in my opinion. The plastic tracks in both the Meng and Orochi kits are excellent. Since there is no sag in Bradley tracks, I don't see the point in metal tracks. Personally I have never seen the point in expensive, AM metal tracks, but that is my opinion.

I don't have any to sell, but can provide some advice. I have built both versions and reviewed the Orochi kit; not impressed.

If you really want the Orochi kit, you would be much better off getting the Standard Edition, esp. at this price. The added gimmics of the Deluxe Edition kit don't really add to the quality of the finished model; it still is inferior to the Meng kit. You can see my build review here of the Orochi M3A3.

I personally would stick with the Meng M3A3, which does not come with an interior included, but as a separate kit.

The Meng M2A3 comes with the interior in the box.



I read and appreciated your review, thanks!

Hello all,

I'd like to build one of these Bradley AFVs. If you've got one in your stash that you'd like to see go to a good home, I'll PayPal you instantly or trade you something juicy from my larder.

Right now I'm looking at the Meng with interior for $60 shipped, or the Orochi Deluxe kit for $40 shipped, both on eBay.

Cheers!
