I know I am late to the party, but she is a looker! I have never done armor before, so this will be new to me completely. I ordered two RFM kits, this one you built, and their "full interior" model. My plan is to install the TUSK I on this kit, and use the TUSK II for the "full interior" model, which does not have a TUSK option in the box. I hope that I am correct and the TUSK will fit the kit, since they are from the same tooling line. I also hope to upgrade the commanders turret with an aftermarket CROWS II kit.
As for weathering, I was a 19Delta, Cavalry Scout, recon for the tanks. Our Bradley's were very well worn, especially those at Ft. Knox, because of the clay that turned to mud, sometimes two feet deep, or more. No matter how hard we tried to clean them, it was impossible to remove the red clay stains, and all the seams were permanently discolored by the environment we operated in. The Abrams were no different, and it did not take long to achieve the weathered look, even with new inventory.
Anyway, thanks for sharing your inspiring build, it looks awesome! Cheers,
