M3 Bradley Desert Storm

I'm looking for some pics on the M3 Bradleys used by the 4th Cav, 24th Mech Infantry during Desert Storm. These are overall sand with grey bands with black edging. I am using the Academy M2 converted to an M3.

An example (Hellraiser) is on the cover of Squadron's M2/M3 Bradley In Action. I also have a few pics gathered from online sources. All of these focus on the driver's side view. What I need are pics that show the other side of the vehicle, the rear, an overhead view, and maybe a better frontal view than what Squadron has.

Thanks in advance.

Lots of looks but no replies. Not a big deal. I'll go with the overall sand scheme until I find the pictures I need. I'll probably stumble on what I need while looking for something else.

Give Frenchy a shout, if he doesn't have it then chances are it doesn't excist.

I built the same vehicle a while ago and could only find teh left side view as well. I took an educated guess at the rest of the scheme. Here is how mine turned out.




Here is my initial post on it.

Thanks Gino the pics are exactly what I need to put some of my own reservations to rest. I've three Bradley kits, two of which I originally built back in the 90s. I'm redoing those. One will be in European color scheme (maybe NTC configuration) and the other in a traditional overall sand scheme for Desert Storm or maybe Iraqi Freedom. I figured this one would stand apart sitting on the display shelf.

Anyway thanks again and I hope that mine looks half as good as yours.
