Modern - OIF Combat ID panels

Combat ID panels were pretty common during OIF and they appear in most of the photos on the hull and turret sides.  As I had used a vietnam era kit they obviously didn't come of the sprue so I tried building them from 1.5mm styrene strip.  I made two at a time and cut the frame once I had trimmed and fitted each of the slats and then a simple job of glueing them in place.  Now I know they don't look too out of place I will make up the ones for the USMC M1A1s as well as some more for the 4 other US Army Vehicles I need for the Force on Force scenarios

  1. Wow, they (and the new Bradley) look great!
    I may copy your M113 fuel tank conversion, as well as the ID panel idea at some point in the future.
    Nice job all around.
