First, I assuming that a M2A2 is correct for the 3ID in OIF. Beyond the IFF/CIP panels and stowage racks, are the following modifications correct for a Tamiya M2A2.
1. remove water barrier up front and fill mounting holes
2. scratchbuild new sight doors and sight cover. Any good references of this?
I know the tracks are wrong and the ammo can holders have changed slightly. Anything else.

Thanks,
Paul

Thanks Rob. Of course you got it covered. Any idea what the raised platform is that is sometimes seen over the sight.

Thanks,
Paul
