Here I am just starting.
Lets see hat we can produce using short turn around methods.

Italeri M113 as a basis for a for a UAV close support MLRS. Or something like that.

Gawd! Can't you build any faster? At this rate it'll take you until tomorrow to finish it! ??? ;) ;D

Gaargh.. that would have worked as well.

This is just about it  as far as the build goes.
Thanks to the extension, should manage a finish as well.. wheewww !
It was a hard choice.. finish this or spend the New Years Weekend on a Houseboat in glorious summer weather here.


And as soon as I learn to use the new SLR camera again, the photos will improve as well.

It. Is. Aliiiiiiive !

Look.. I have found my mojo and back at the bench.. it is a "a Short-Chamber Boxer-Henry .45 caliber miracle"

working up the Digital Camo.. why you ask.. lunacy, early onset stupidity?.. but mainly because it really does look cool.



Another bench session and should be done

Wow - I'd almost leave it with the tape on, if you could secure the pieces permanently. It looks like some sort of armor.

Could almost be a good use for the 1000's of M113 that are still out there
