3/4 Cav. armor and 1 Aussie


Well-known member
NEAT! DID not know the Aussies used the M551! I watched a movie recently titled DANGER CLOSE about the VN battle at Long Tan...quite the fight!

This was not in 3/4 Cav., but division Arty.
RPG battle damage.
Unless they come out with these in 1/48th scale I won't be building these. James O'Leary asked me to post my pics of our M-113's a while ago and to acknowledge his excellent VN work and to honor his late Dad, I decided to post all of what I have. The Aussie truck is the one painted tan color on the previous post. Thanks to all. Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

Thanks James!!The color film back then made olive drab looks a little dark. Too much blue? Sometimes it looked more brown. Film? What's film?? Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

I noticed that OD color being so dark. I was going to paint mine a different color until you mentioned this Gary. Thanks! Love these pics!

The OD color was more like the photos of the M-113 with RPG damage and the one having an engine change. Gary S. XXXXV XX XX
