Ukrainian Bradley 1/72 Revell M2 A2


Recommended Posts

I first purchased this kit at the Holbeach 2022 show & thought I'd start putting it together at our club table there & then. It was a random purchase & something to do in between my usual fast jets.

I didn't complete it till later this year & after seeing these Bradley's being used in Ukraine in 2023 I thought why not make it topical & found some reference pics online of Ukrainian Bradleys in a pixellated paint scheme, which was made up from hand cut masks more or less copied straight from photos of an actual Ukrainian pixelated example.

All paints are Ammo Mig as is the weathering pigments & washes. The added on stowage was a resin set from Legend productions. Oh and a photographic cheat for the interior!

Lovely job Martin. Seen it in the flesh and didn't notice the 'cheat'. Next time I'll know and will expect a better job on the interior. If I can do it on my '432', you can do it :bleh:.

Thanks old pal! This time I just couldn't be bothered. Next time will be unlikely as I've got the Takom kit which I believe has an interior & I have the Fox turret version which is basically a solid block of resin! 😝 I have just taken another look at your excellent 432 build that must have planted a seed of inspiration for me to start building small scale AFV's.

Nice kit!

 

I once used the same trick for the Tamiya F-16 exhaust, it was just a blank plate. So I printed a picture of the "real" thing and glued it into it. Looks better than many expensive PE- and resin-parts! 😁

Great Bradley. The weathering is very good, and I like the setting. Nice work.

Hi Martin,

Very good Bradley, it looks like a larger scale because it is well finished.
I had already seen the interior trick on some occasions, it turned out very well.

Cheers

Francis.👍

Many thanks chaps, much appreciated!
