the bags look more realistic the new way you have strapped them on and use of the duffle bags. The camo net, etc also look better with your new straps. I also like your figures. Who are they made by or did they come with the Bradly?

I hadn't noticed before, but the 2 sets of 4 protrusions under the front left and right corners of the turret are the smoke grenade launchers. These should be hollowed out, or shown to have the grenade in them or have a black rubber cap over the lips of each one.

Thanks Tony,
The figures are from Preiser, their modern US Infantry and tank crew, they are ideal for Desert Storm, but not for anything after really. Glad you like the new stowage, I think I will make another Bradley and really clutter it up, with this one I wanted to show
a vehicle recently come into theatre and with minimal stowage as yet (no water for example). I like the idea of the side racks and ID panels though and also the rubber bumpers to stop equipment being knocked off. I have stopped short of doing the smoke launchers. I have PE caps for them but they are really fiddly, maybe just painting on the black rubber would be best.
cheers!
Paul.

I wasn't to happy with the Revell smoke grenade launchers so I decided to make them more like the ones in the Dragon kits. I used a plastic rod for this. Now they are larger and not parallell any more.
