I rebuilt and repainted my Tamiya M113 ACAV . I was going to make a pile of jungle foliage like on my Japanese sniper
and have it jungle busting , but thought about the headache of making all the plants , so decided to have it in a
clearing with Dragons 1st Cav troopers .

I had to make a couple of replacement M-60 gun shields because I had lost the originals.
I done a google search and printed out a couple of late 70's Playboy mag covers , all of the graffiti
was brush painted on , I copied them from a number of photo's of various ACAV's

I don't know how you do it but all I can say is WOW! Once again you've managed to make it look so lifelike, slap a paddy field background in there and it would look like a photo from 'nam. The rear gunner on the m113 is keen though having girlie mags out with a superior officer standing there :ohmy:

Fantastic!

Thanks ... I was kind of going for the attitude like in Platoon , grunts not really caring what a fresh in the field officer
thinks, as they rumble past

Well I think you've captured it down to a tee.
