More detail bits going into the hull now, radio fitted, spare .50 cal barrel. flash light. some rubbed off rubber from the drives boot soles 

added.  It's getting busy in there now, with a spare M47 reload and a few MRE boxes with the ALICE packs it should look a bit more like home for some troops on a Reforger Exercise.

Hi Dan
it looks fantastic now, very real, with those "little details in the
details "... lol, like signs on fire extinguishers and some engine parts ...:popcorn:

Cheers Dan 👍

Thank you all for the great feedback chaps, all very much appreciated indeed. 

 

Mocking out the interior bits n bobs, I've plumbed in the fixed fire extinguisher and painted up the night scope for the driver, chucked in the ALICE packs just to see how they fit.

Last update today, I've decaled the crew PASGT helmets with the Cross Delta woodland pattern decals,

These will go inside as part of the crew kit. Some detail painting yet to do but as these are drying off 

they will get done later.

Foliage bands and cats eyes will get painting up as I mentioned above.  The decals were 3 piece for the helmets as per the full size covers for those interested :thumbsup:

 

Cheers

Cheers chaps,

 

I have done the detail painting on one of the helmets this morning, one more to go and then a touch of matt varnish. Some basic shadows added and the foliage band painted up 

with the two cats eye reflectors on the back.

Excellent workmanship Dan, I'm going to have to invest in some UK DPM decals for my tank crewmen.

It just gets better and better. I trust that the therapy is working.

Just spent a happy hour reading through this thread (should have been working but...) The level of workmanship is outstanding and I am amazed at the level of detail you have incorporated. Hope you are recuperating and feeling a bit better?

What a detail, the "granulate" that simulates cloth and the "cat eyes", for something so small, is very meritorious ...:popcorn:

:wow:What a detailed! Every time I see it, it is better (fortunately ... lol), I hope one day to dare to do some interior, because the difficulty coupled with the possible lack of vision, makes me doubt it ...🙄

Cheers and HNY, :xmasparty:

Enjoying watching your progress Dan.

 

One question, it might still be on your to do list but should the cut out on the left hand rear track guard be filled in:

or, if it is present, more channel shaped presumably its a fluid drain of some description ?

Good spot Richard,

 

I did notice it early on during the build and took it that Tamiya modelled a A0 wagon, I’ll have to do a bit of digging about but it looks an easy fix with a bit of epoxy putty :frantic:

Slow progress I'm afraid chaps, a lot is going on in the world of Dads203 

so grabbing bench time is something I'm not really able to do. I will try harder though. :frantic:

 

More interior detailing and the creation of the small details that you would find on a M113 in Germany during the cold war. MRE boxes 

Ammo tins and the personal kit from the crew.

More wiring going on in the engine bay.

Some of the details have yet to be finished off but it's getting close now.

Stunning attention to detail Dads, as usual.  Keep on taking the tablets ;)

Hope normality returns to the world of @Dads203 as soon as possible.

 

If there was a chap in the back fixing the American equivalent of a "brew" I think you could mistake that interior for a real wagon !
