I talked a member of our IPMS club into starting a US Bradley IFV build. He is a life long airplane and car guy. Never has built an armor model in his life. Here is his update for our Club Blog on what it is like starting a Braille Scale kit. He has a great sense of humor and thought other Braille scale guys might enjoy this.








When he finishes I'll post his completed model, assuming he did not swallow that road wheel.

Be aware Bob that that the smaller the wheel the more potent the effect and you could easily become addicted like the rest of us on this forum.Lol, enjoy mate.
