"Thunder Run"

Iraq 2003

Scale:  1/72


Used Kits: DML Dragon


My diorama shows the drive of the US 3rd Infantry Division to Baghdad in April 2003. My goal was to show the tactical situation of penetrating the enemy territory along the main traffic axis.

The Bradley is out of the box with some stowage added. On the Abrams I removed the pregnant belly and built a bustle rack extension. The base color for the tanks was mixed with Tamiya colors: 40% Buff (XF-57) + 30% Desert Yellow (XF-59) + 30% Flat White (XF-2). Pigments were used for dusting everything.
