Hi folks,

With a kit in 1/35 of the Bushmaster now being available (see below), what about some modelling ideas:

To start with, one could model the Thales Copperhead derived version:

One could also do a US Armed Forces version since the Bushmaster was originally considered for the MRAP Program.

Interesting but obviously either its only for small fires or the rest of the crew travel in a separate vehicle.   Don't see a remote weapons station on their either...   ;)

Reckon I know which one of the latter and former that will clock up the most hours as a useful working vehicle ;)

Some more photos of the "CopperHead":







Something like this with either a HIMARS MLRS Pod or perhaps a M777 howitzer or even just a SAM system on the back would look cool.
