Wow.  Rough day for the Brits...maybe next time... ;)

But what a great board!  The figs and vehicles look good, too!

Went to the Warfare show last weekend.
Picked up a couple of Bradley’s at a fiver each.
Got them home, only to find one of them was missing it’s side armour.
So finally got to the shed yesterday, determined to sort it.

Here are the two Bradley’s I bought.


I removed the surviving side skirt to use as a template.
This was then cut out of plastic card.


Plastic card side skirt, glued together, then undercoated brown.
I tried to carve in the plates.


New side skirt added, along with extra baggage to hide it.


Now to undercoat the baggage, and add the finishing colours.

Skilfully done Bob.
If you want to put black vertical lines on it (like the other one)
a bit of thin card & a black Gel pen will do it.

Ambush Alley is fine by me. Obviously I have my preferred set but AA would work fine for us a group.
