Academy 1/35 M2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle
April 9, 2014 in Armor
Hello everybody! Here is my Academy 1/35 scale M2 Bradley. I picked this kit up while stationed in Korea back in 1995/96. It only took me until a month ago to finish!
I pretty much built it out of the box, aside form adding some rucksacks and concertina wire from an accessory kit.
My original plan was to build a 2nd Armored Cavalry Bradley from the battle of 73 Eastings ( I was a member of 2 ACR from 96-99) but as it turned out, 2 ACR Bradleys at 73 Eastings were not M2s but M3 Cav Scout Bradleys, and I did not have the resources available to me to make the conversion. Instead, I opted to make Bradley IFV as found in the game Battlefield 3, since I have played that game a lot.
This is my 2nd armored model, as I usually build aviation assets. Armor is fun and I also think more forgiving than aircraft since I can always cover my mistakes with mud, dirt or a spare rucksack, but I do enjoy building aircraft a whole lot.
Anyways, here it is, and all critiques are most welcome.
