M113 Fitter

This is the Academy kit. I added Fruil tracks and the hydraulic lines on the crane. I also replaced the kit toolbox rack with one bade from Evergreen stock. Deviated from my usual Tamiya paint and used Model Air Sinai grey 1973. Its a dated kit with no clear optics and rubberband tracks but it builds up nice enough.


It is clear you put allot of love into this build . Would have never known it was dated . Another masterpiece anyone would be proud to have on their shelf.

Did you drill the lug holes on the spare road wheels , if so I tip my hat to you . The precision measurements are a real piece of eye candy.

Once again, EXCELLENT build, paint job and weathering!

I honestly do not remember. Built this about 2 years ago.

Nicely done DV, the added hydraulic lines alone take it up a level. Lovely finish as well.:+1:

Always wanted to build one of these little field engineer pieces, you did a great job on the fit and finish, I agree the hydraulic lines and connectors really take it to the next level.

Spectacular would be a great way to describe this model!

Looking good I like what you have done to it
I have one in my stash.


boy you did some seriously nice work! Can I beg you to let me know what kind of paint colors you used?

re-read your post and see you called out the paint. Sorry.

That is a very good build indeed :+1:

I just love it, nice color!! I like IDF vehicles because they are so full of little colorful details, well done!!

Thanks. And I agree I like a splash of color to make a monotone scheme more interesting.
