1/35 Academy M113A3 "Iraq2003" was created by RED
Good evening fellow modelers

long time and not (if any) posts, but I have been secretly stalking the page for a while

anyway I thought I would share what I am about to start

this is to go with the Tamiya M113A2(3) I built a while ago (Obj Curly diorama is still on the cards as I have the M88 and Bradly nearly completed)

This one is to be done up as an armoured ambulance with crew and some aftermarket stowage, I am currently playing around with the size of the stretcher (eventually there will be two on one side with the other containing stowage and a figure)

cheers

Shaun

Update one - the build continues, albeit with a little paint thrown in for good measure

Not that you can see much but a bit of the detail painting is now done
next step is decals followed by getting the rest of the details inside

Quick update - detail painting has started for the interior





Just a quick question while I'm at it
I've nearly completed a UN APC (M113), painted and clear coated ready for weathering - my question is what colour wash would you use on a white vehicle?

It will be "dirtied" a little once completed

thanks in advance

cheers
