I recently finished this one. It's Academy's 1/35 M113IA (Vietnam) kit.
This vehicle was part of a three vehicle troop called 'BLOOD', 'SWEAT' '& TEARS' which were part of A Squadron, 3rd Cavalry Regiment, Royal Australian Armoured Corps.
It was equipped with a T50 steel turret and a .50 calibre M2 Browning heavy machine gun.
A pintle mounted .30 calibre L3A4 Browning medium machine gun is also fitted to the turret top.
It was airbrushed with acrylics and weathered with pastel chalks. I also used a few bits and pieces from 'Mouse House' (decals, sponson armour, replacement rear cargo hatch etc) and the figures were from 'Firestorm'.
I meant to also mention it's the first time I have built and painted figures so I'm still not sure if I am 100% happy with them. Constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement welcome as always
Looks good to me Greg, there is something white under the right eye of the driver or it could just be the picture, I'm no figure expert but they look alright to me
Maybe some close ups of the figures would help?

I really really like the look of this. The mud, the base, its very convincing. What I would do is glue the tracks down at the front to give more of a sag look. They are typical Academy so nighter tight nor snug fitting. These tracks are "dead" tracks so they sag onto the road wheels like WWII German tanks. Otherwise top stuff. I should say that the tracks themselves look great.
