M2A3 Bradley w/BUSK III - And So It Begins

Getting a jump start on my group build by beginning with the engine compartment components instead of the suspension. The fit on the parts, so far, is excellent. This is my first Meng kit and the styrene seems more brittle than others when cutting and sanding but softer when reacting to adhesive.

Here's a photo of the engine compartment components. Since I'm building this OOB, I will not be adding any wiring, etc. to the kit. By the way, the kit includes a complete interior. I will assemble the radiator to the engine once I get them back from the spray booth.
