1/72 M2A2 Bradley w/ ERA

Been away a while as I had a very busy year, and I had to get a Bismarck, done before Dec. 5 (I failed). At said Dec. 5th IPMC Xmas party, I got a couple DML 1/72 M2A2 Bradley's with reactive armor.



Not too happy with the kits. They parts don't fit together well, but they do have lots of detail. They're definitely quick builds.

So I'm doing one as a modernized M2A2 and one as an Operation Desert Storm version.



And one with the TOW deployed (modern) and the other stowed (ODS)

You can se how well the top and bottom sit together here.



Subtle differences between the Operation Desert Storm version and the other. On the one on the right,I had to scratch a railing around the turret hatch cuz I broke the original and it went spinning off to who knows where.

They are mounting brackets for the reactive armor. To be honest, I'm not sure they're worth the effort, since they'll be beneath the ERA.
