M2 Bradley, 1/35 Academy

Postby beowulf » Sat Apr 29, 2017 10:07 pm

been a while since ive bodged plastic but now the bench is up and running we shall see how much i can remember and see how the skills have atrophied

its been in my stash for over 10 years so its about time it was done

it comes with a full interior but since i have no intention of having the hatches open i dont see the point

looking forward to starting it in a few days once ive got a little Landie out the way

slowly making progress.....life and work getting in the way as normal

done my usual trick of bonding in a nut so i can use a threaded bar as a handle, and also bonded in some ballast to give the whole thing some mass, so it 'sits' on the rubber tracks better

looks awesome, maybe photographs of the vehicle could help the pre-shading, adding a bit of weight is brilliant, is there a dio for this one ?
