Wow, has it been 3 months already?  Time flies when you are old!  Anyway, I have been faffing around with other random projects as my whim sees fit, when some AVRN aftermarket decals showed up:

I am unfamiliar with the maker, and registration of the yellow bars are questionable.  But this scheme caught my fancy:

It has an interesting striped camouflage and an ACAV shield for the commander's 50 cal.  And I had a spare Eduard M551 Sheridan PE set in the M41's box, so:

But now the replacement 50 cal from Academy is looking lousier the more I look at it.  Maybe I can find another kit with a better gun.  The donor kit would then get a Tasca gun.

Ohhhh, I like the mottled OD green and black camo. That looks sharp! 

I also like that giant B&W elephant insignia on the decal sheet. And the white ones- can't tell what they are- a cockatoo and a dragon? I may have to build some AVRN armour- that's pretty friggin' wicked!

Happy to see this thread back up in the top 10.

I like that mottled scheme as well.
