Thank you Gino. I'll look into that.

First time for me to do any type of stowage. Painted one of these up to see how it would look.

The rucksack looks good. Nice job on it. 8 more to go if you want to depict a full vehicle. A Bradley carries a full compliment of 9 soldiers; 3 crewmen and 6 dismounts.

Thank you Gino.

Would this era of Bradley be carrying a tow bar? I mean, is it in the realm of possibilities?

Also, what style of MRE cases were being used during the Bosnia conflict?

Yes, a tow bar could be carried. The MRE boxes would be the smaller, flatter box as in the old Tamiya Modern US Accessory Set (35141).



Here is a M2A2 in Bosnia in '96. You can see the flatter MRE boxes on the ront.

Thanks Gino.

I've been busy with work and haven't spent a ton of time on this. But I have managed to get a little bit of weathering done.






Excuse my work bench. My wife moved all of my things into the game room and I just haven't organized any of it yet.

Thank you for the kind words about the camo. I was nervous to try it, since this was first time at a NATO scheme.

You're right, I need to clean those lines up. I was being lazy when I first started this kit.

I do like the more realistic look of the NATO camo, I'll just do a pin wash.

Here is a couple of update shots. Details painted. I'll be redoing the cans once the mold lines are cleaned up.

I'm filling all the holes in the lower hole, once the putty is dry and cleaned up, I'll finish up the lower hull.






very nice job

I've finally got off my butt and finished this. Still needs the stowage, but I'm not pressing my luck here. Lol

Also, I still have the worst litghing. Maybe one day I'll get a light box for pictures.










Cheers
