This is a close-up look at Gino P. Quintiliani''s OIF M2A2. . It represents a vehicle from 3-15 IN, 3ID during OIF 1. He built it using the Tamiya M2A2 ODS kit with rear troop area from Academy M2 kit. He also added many missing bolts and other features that Tamiya missed on the ODS upgrades. Gino also used the Rust-Oleum Terra Cotta spray technique for anti-slip coating.

Thanks Gino!

Vinnie

Nice build Gino! I like the college dorm look of the interior! Nice to see a well painted desert scheme, IMO it's one of the hardest paint jobs to try.

Vinnie,
Thanks for posting them and suggesting I do so. It looks great.

Haden't thought of it as a college dorm, but good description. Glad you like it. Thanks.
