Will be adding full interior and futuristic weapon system, maybe dio if there's time left.

Couple of quick in-progress photos.

Gunnie,

It's the last of three protype BMP's that were armed w/ a Neutral Particle Beam (NPB) Cannon. I actually have my whole story line written but it's about two pages so I'm going to wait till I post the final photos to upload it.

I know that a Particle Beam sounds very Sci-Fi but fron the research I did, I found it's really only about 10-20 years away from being fielded by the military.


Here's a link w/ a better description:

Few update photos - had to scrap entire previous interior - looked like crap.


Top w/ spall liner (used old biz. cards to get kevlar fabric look).
Cut outs for periscopes were a pain to align.


Interior shot.

.
Interior w/ labels.


Hope this looks better?

Well w/ one day left I'm not going to make it. I'm only this far (too much work, not enough bench time).







Guess this will have to be a T2K - 2006 project.

Good luck to everyone who finishes.
