The Mechanised Bit - Danish M113 Platoon

OK - so on with the show and onto the transports for the troops shown last week.  The Armoured Personnel Carrier of choice for the Danes was the ubiquitous M113A1.  I've chosen to use the excellent S-Models M113 and have added some bits and pieces of stowage primarily from Value Gear and other model kits.  Figures are all AB Figures - British Tank Crew in Pixie Suits.

Here is the Platoon Commanders track:




1st Squad's Track:



2nd Squad's Track:




Now the whole platoon:



So there they are.  Ready to roll out and take on some Soviets...

Thanks for looking

Richard

  1. hey Richard those are great looking APCS. Like the subtle mud/dust effects - do you use powders for that? I do like S-models they make really good kits. Cheers Will

  2. Thanks Will. Yes, I use Tamiya Weathering Master powders - just swipe it on with a make-up brush sponge of a stick that comes in the box. Very simple and works well for a dusty look.

  3. Oh nice - i recently discovered weathering powders (MIG i think) and havent looked back. Every time i see your posts it makes me want to start a Vietnam or Falklands game. I want to build Scimitar tanks and land rovers! Always too many exciting things to do and not enough time!

  4. It can be pretty hard to resist Scimitars and Land Rovers! I know, I've got way too many of each!
