Looks great. Is that the older Tamiya kit?

Great job on it. It looks like a great example of a Cold War warrior.

Great build. The dusty weathering looks very good.

Is this the Tamiya kit? I have two of these in my stash and is really looking forward to building them.

Thanks for sharing

From rocks to decals, simply superb! I too want to know which kit you used. May find it's way into my blackhawk dio.

It is either the Tamiya M2/M3 kit, or Academy's exact copy of it. Both are pretty good. Tamiya's is a little sharper in details and casting though.

Unless you plan to have your Blackhawk as an early to mid-'80s bird without HIRSS (open exhausts are available from Cobra Company to backdate it), the two will not go together. By the time UH-60s had the HIRSS exhuasts, most units (pretty much all, esp. front line units that used UH-60s) had M2A1s with the larger turret basket and the gun ports gone or M2A2s by 1991.

Thanks guys for your kind words....

This is a Tamiya M2 Bradley, Kit # 35132.
Didn't use any after market stuff, just stratch the side skirt grip handles, drill out the gun muzzle and also added the anti slip coating using Rust Olem direct from the can.

I got this kit so that the interior can be use for my Tamiya M2A2 ODS.

Thanks.
