Hi Guys,

This is where i am right now on my Bradley WIP, this kit was obsolate and mould taken over by Kinetic who re-release as a kit with additional bits.












Scratch build heavy tow bar.



Still needed some details touch up and I should be calling this one done!

Thanks
Donny

Looks pretty good. The Orochi kit has some real issues. A few things I see though. The biggest is that the ERA blocks on the front glacis are on backwards. The angled blocks should be on the top.


I am assuming you are not done yet, but it needs some work on the details to finish it up. The vision blocks all need to be painted, the lights need to be painted/installed, the tops of the ammo boxes on the rear of the turret should be dark green, as the inset on the rear of the TOW box should also be dark green. The smoke grenades should be black, there is a bracket on the head of the sledge hammer that should be sand, etc...

Thanks Gino, yes I am not done yet, need some details touch up before calling it done.

Thanks for your valuable advise, point noted and see if I am able to make some rectification on it.

Looks really good mate! You've done a really great job on the sand and dust weathering, really impressive
