1/72 ITALERI M113

Just finished this one

A quick, fun build inspired by seeing some real M113s at last weeks War & Peace show

Found an Italeri (ex-Esci?) M113\M163 Vulcan version in the stash, I added some plastic rod and strip to the turret to make it look busier than the basic plastic parts provided, its not accurate but it looks more the part to me.

A mix of kit and spares box decals were added over Vallejo Model Air Olive Drab and Dark Green, I experimented with various MIG and Humbrol enamel washes (the latter very heavily thinned) with Humbrol weathering powders mixed with both the washes and separately with a decalcote\water mix

Some thin wire adds the finishing touch for the aerials

Off to find some weedkiller now ….
