An M113 for the trio?😀

 

 

Many thanks Sfet,.

A trio...this is an excellent idea and I have some options here: M113, M577, M551 and others.

Hard to choose one :D

Hi Cesar,

Excellent couple, the "little one" is very cool and I love the impressive M107, which I still remember from when you published it, and it is a reference for me....

Cheers and TC

Francis.👍

 

 

Hello my friend, I appreciate your kind words to.

 

Now we have a new tank from this SPG family on the market, tho M110 from AFV Club, better detailed that this good old italeri kit. which means less work ahead.

 

Cheers :cheers:

Some little time ago I was privileged to meet a veteran from the Vietnam conflict. 

I think your tribute is very fitting.

Hi Pete, wow, a great moment for you I'm sure.

 

Thank you for recognizing my effort and for the kind words because they value my humble work.
