I have been working on the Tamiya M2A2 kit. I got it cheap and decided to try a couple of new things. One was to build the entire kit before painting. The other was to paint it flat black as a base coat. I plan to use Gulf War Aromor Sand. The thing is, I like it black !
OK, I'm sure I sound like an idiot but, has anyone ever seen one painted black?
I've even thought about a "what if" project. Maybe a swat team vehicle. Ok, I'm heading back to my padded room.

It's your kit, build it like you want. Pick up a set of 1/25 police decals from your local car model hobby shop. You can make a police Bradley, maybe it can take out the DC area sniper.

Sounds like a great idea. Some shops still have the DML policse sets. SOL has police figures in resin in different posses. Two of them are even repelling. There are about 8 to 10 different figures.

Thanks for the input guys. The Bradley is now painted sand. However, I have 2 more M2 kits on the shelf and plan to do a Police Bradley. At least it's on the list. #:-)
