Today I was able to take some photos of the finished Canadian M113 Platoon - this time just the AFVs. I'll jump straight into the photos.
Here's M113 No. 1. Not exactly sure how the vehicle commander ended up looking quite so relaxed in the cupola - I hope I can fix that at some point in the future. So No. 1 is an S-Model M113, with a variety of stowage including an old Airfix bicycle and an Elhiem .30 Cal. The commander is from AB figures.
M1113 No. 4 is a straight forward S-Model kit with no crew. Nothing to exciting to add here...
I tried a couple of different things on these vehicles. I used Vallejo gloss and matt spray-can varnish on them. Not 100% sold to be honest - but I'm willing to give them another go.
I also used 2 MiG Productions Oilbrushers on the vehicles. I only have two colours - Dusty Earth (a light tan colour) and Starship Filth (a grey colour) and I tried to give the vehicles a dusty, grimy streaky look. I'd be interested in any feedback - as I think I may have overdone it a little. Who knows...
Anyway - I'm very happy to have these finished and to be able to move onto something else. This will be it for the Canadians for a little while, as I wait for my 3D Printer to arrive. Then I will jump back into this particular project with bells on!
Thanks for looking
