Hello guys, this is an "old" kit which was announced in 1985. Now compare with MENG's Bradley, some detail of this kit couldn't make me satisefied. Hope some good brand such sa MENG or TAMIYA could bring me a total new M2A0 and M2A2. Well, so be it. I finish this M2A2 OOB, painted with NATO three colors scheme, and light weathering.Ths final effect is not too bad. The most important, I got one less stored box! Thanks for your reviewing, happy modeling, nice day!

Well I enjoyed posting my first ever tank WIP with the Tamiya MkIV Male, even if the finished result wasn't quite good enough to go into Ready for Inspection. Having enjoyed building my first complete kit for years, I have been inspired to try something completely different, in the form of Meng's super detailed cavalry Bradley.

Hi Guys, I am building my second only AFV, and have chosen the Meng M2A3 Bradley with BUSK and full interior with the Fruil Model metal tracks(no point in half measures) . As I normally do things with wings (and after cleaning up all the wheels I am reminded why) I have very few references to work with. Therefore I would like to start this topic to allow mw to ask the stupid questions I need to help this along. I have started well with the tracks completed and looking fine, and assume that the separate tyres on the wheels are rubber (The instructions give Vallejo numbers but the one quoted I can't even find on the Vallejo website!) and I will use Tyre black for them. However, I am stuck with the main colour used during the desert campaigns. I have been informed that the colour should be FS23446, but this would suggest that the paint is semi-gloss and I find that pictures seem to show a matt finish. Can anyone confirm this and suggest a good colour match? I generally use Vallejo, Tamiya and Mr Hobby acrylic paints. Thanks for any feedback or tips.
Good morning, 25 years ago, Desert Storm started. One of the many players in it was the "Bradley" APC (or IFV?). Well, since I usually don't do military modelling, I guess you know much more about than I do anyway! The kit is from Revell, and built OOB, except the antennaes. Fitting was good, just had some problems with the tracks. But I guess it was due to my poor experience. Painting was done with Modelmaster Marines Desert Sand, weathering was some filtering and washing with oil colours. All in all, a nice kit, which can be recommanded. As this is one of my few military things, I appreciate any feedback, and ways to improve the technique. I should add some soot at the exhaust, maybe some luggage as well. We'll see! Alex
