  • More inspriation for those who glue plastic...

    Well, I made a heck of "Ooops" at the hobby shop. I searched half the day and 3 hobby shops later I found my Vietnam for my diorama..and got an APC. BUT! The APC I got was built in 1983 and was a variant of the M113 I was looking for...so I tried out some new stuff, take a look.





    I wanted to get an upper pic, but the battrie died right before I hit the button...let me try again tomorrow. ANd PM..it was too late for me to try and dry brush..maybe next time.
    I am a simple man. I am by no means smarter than the average man. I am average...yet genius.

    Are you going to use it in your diorama?

    If you are, you should maybe attempt to try and repaint it in the colour it would have been if it was in the Vietnam war.

    If you can't repaint it, here is the kit you want for your diorama.

    Here are some pics to give you a few ideas on the colour scheme to paint it or to repaint the one you have.






    I hope this helps you with some ideas for your diorama Trevor.



    Cheers,

          You have an ITV or a Improved TOW Vehicle. If you thinned your paint and applied multiple, but thinner, coats the brush marks would disappear.
          If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

              Hey nice job there Waffe, don't think i've ever seen that M113 version before.
              I like your colors for the camo, nice job on supplies attached to the side too.

              Hand brushing is tuff, thats how i started out, then i saw this guy use an airbrush and i had to have one. The only thing i hand paint now is figs.

                I airbrush EVERYTHING where practical.
