I have learned much just looking @ your photos. IMPRESSIVE does not do justice to your talent my Polish friend. I think I am a accomplished builder, then I get a reality check from a master builder!

Once I have written that I can take care of "more ambitious tasks". Well... That was not true. Putting these small elements together is worse than cutting them. I still have to finish the suspension and the tracks.
Wheels are almost ready, done mostly as designed in the kit.
The tracks will be totally different than paper bands proposed by the author. But this will be the subject of my next update.

As you can see on the photos below the wheels are waiting to be painted, after being extensively impregnated and polished... nothing pretty really :(

This falls under the category of very few models that look like they are the real thing, but somehow you were able to miniaturize it. That hatch for the driver is incredible, as is the back deck. I have worked with enough steel in my life and if knew nothing about this model at all, I would think it was steel.

Recently I started building another model - unfortunatelly a statistical one :( so my work on Bradley slowed down. But today I can show you finished wheels and semi-finished rear hatch.
All the painting is done with a simple paintbrush, I'm starting to seriously consider buying aerograph. The colour you see is not final, of course. At the end I'll try to paint similar camouflage as my Hummer.

That is very impressive painting for brush on paper. I am thinking of getting an airbrush rig myself.

Little update - the prototype of the track, announced some time ago is ready. Still missing the guide plates and anti-skid rubber pieces.
