Tinkering with...IrishSerbs' AAV7 & Bradley's



 Another speculative buy and a tentative leap into moderns, three AAV7A1 Amtraks and M2A2 Bradley's and a Humve. All arrived from the States, safe and sound, lovely casts, no air bubbles or flaws and even some spares thrown in, all in all excellent service from Brian.

After some research on the web I up-detailed where I was confident and added loads of "green stuff " stowage. No really much to do on these, I was going to open some hatches, but, well, I'll save that for another time.

Quick summary of Mods:
  • Stowage Racking on AAV7 
  • Aerial Points
  • Grenade munition supply feed
  • Stowage and more stowage.
  • deployed one TOW launcher
Am looking for any pointers on further mods and more particularly camo schemes, thoughts so far are :
  • Bradleys - sand overall with broad grey patches
  • AAV7 - european three tone but with sand coloured armour add-ons
I picked up some useful pointers from Werwulfs warroom, so many thanks:

PSC Shermans - Little Beauties

Following on from my earlier post, here is the final results of the PSC Sherman up detailing.




I am disappointed with my pictures as they don't show the details that well, all have light protectors and extra detailing on the stowage, oh well..... Figures are a mix of Peter Pig and Skytrex ( before the 50% price hike!) and hybrids of the both. The recovery is Skytrex with mods.









and a reminder of their humble beginnings
