M113A1 Chilean Army

  • move
Klaus built Academy's M113A1 mainly out of the box, except for adding a turned metal antenna and a camo net made from gauze. Paint was done with K4 acrilycs, and weathered using enamel products from Ammo of Mig and AK Interactive plus K4 pigments. Decals are from Bison Decals, and while not specific to this model are still useful. This model represents a vehicle of the Chilean Army in service circa 1974.

Nice build in unusual markings. Great job on the camo netting which looks very realistic. Thanks for sharing

i spent 16 years on 113's before we went to Humvee's (POS). i like the way you made the bolt holes for the track shrouds. are those metal tracks? nice build

Hi BV Bass, bolt hole came in the kit (Academy), so you can built it with or without track shrouds. Tracks are vinyl, from the kit. Cheers
