A stunning build of a much-traveled armored personnel carrier found in many different guises, this one being the IDF M113 Zelda from modelling friend Jacques Pelosse

Really nicely weathered but those vision ports look weird. I’d give them some panel liner round the edges - the blue looks too flat blue if that makes sense. Also the stowage on top could do with another flat coat.

But other than that, superb build. I love the subtle weathering effects on this, the tiny little rust spots, chipping etc all top class. Well done.

Excellent job on the Zelda. I built one many years ago from a Tamiya 113 with the verlinden update set . Yours looks much nicer. Really great job on the finish. As pointed out already , I’d put a dull coat of some of the shiney storage items but it’s excellent!
