Nice photos, Chris. Are those ADATS turrets on your AD vehicles?

EDIT: Oops, just looked back to the previous page...yep, definitely ADATS.

Thank you guys, glad you like them. Hunkering down in my bunker for a couple of weeks, I have painted some stuff. Some things I have re-painted from Olive Drab to 3-tone NATO camo. I have been painting that camo for 25-26 years I guess.
> For the most part, I use the same style but with different colors when I multi-color camo.

Retake BRDM - SA-9 to FO. These were bought somewhere online, at a con missing SAM pods,

Abrams bridge layers. From an auction, these were on M60. Read months ago that the US Army is planning to utilize Abrams AVLB with same bridge. Then I found these old/crappy casting of Abrams hulls, do not know the manufacturer. So re-task the GHQ Abrams hulls that the AVLB had been on, Required repainting.

Redleg, I had to come with an idea on the Harpoon launcher. Bought a 3-D printed item that included: CWIS, Rolling Airframe Middle launcher and Harpoon whic I can aLso use on models.
Plan to make 2-3 more towed Centurion AA. Here is the self-propelled Centurion.
