1/72 Dragon M2A3 Bradley 

This M2A3 Bradley assigned to the 2nd platoon, Alpha Company 1-5 Cav, 1st Cavalry Division, in May 2007.  My son was a dismount trooper, a SAW/M240 gunner and this was his “ride”.  The vehicles were handed down to incoming units and therefore all markings were painted out.  I am grateful to him for his photos and input in helping me get it all correct but even more so that he made it home safe and sound.

I used the Dragon M2A3 with the interior, suitably modified, from a M2A2 kit. The characteristics of the service unit Bradley was duplicated on this build.
