Revamped 1/72 M2A2 just in time for AiC was created by Craig Sargent
Pulled this out of ModelAir display case and did some corrections/tidy up. When I built this, my knowledge of armour wasn't the greatest, but after doing some research, there were some things that I wasn't happy with so decided to sort them out.

I removed the stowage bin from the right side and redid the stowage, removed the gun barrel and scratchbuilt a new one, added a barbed wire roll to the front, added a tint to the vision blocks, and then recreated a section of Iraqi highway with some beat up Jersey barriers.

Never took any before pics, but here is the finished result.

Very Nice Sir!!!

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

Thanks all. The base is the lid of an airtight coffee container my wife cracked so salvaged the lid, brushed it with Future/Klear, then found some appropriate grade wet n dry sandpaper, hit it with some MiG pigments and other weathering. Glued on the tank and barriers. QED.

BTW, I get caught sniffing it sometimes because it still smells of good coffee beans.
