TOPIC: Tamiya M113 ACAV

Tamiya M113 ACAV 08 Apr 2017 20:26 #1

This is a place holder for my M113 build for this campaign to go with my F-4B. I really wanted to do some armor and with multiple ribbons on offer and a pretty generous timeline I just might get this done as well. I'm planning to build the Tamiya M113 ACAV, a kit i've lusted after since i was a kid.

Its on its way from the Brothers of Sprue along with some decals as well. I'll jump into this one when it gets here. Going to take a stab at making this nice and dirty.

I'll post the start photo when the kit arrives!

See you all soon
Mike

This is exactly why I thought we might try a multiple ribbon build :geek

"In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security.
They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all - security,
comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again."

Have you decided what unit your track is going to belong to and/or a particular vehicle depicted? Last year I had built one depicting the track a friend of mine served on and it was an enjoyable, but very long, build. What made it take so long was that I was trying to get as many small details correct as possible and it seemed like I kept finding something else to tweek or add throughout the entire build. It was worth it, though, as my friend was very impressed with the model and diorama.

Looking forward to your build, your impression of the Tamiya kit, and your weathering of the completed model.

Cheers,
James
