mfg: Flashpoint Miniatures
scale: 1/100 (15mm)
There are two platoons of 4 m113 vehicles each.
M113 106 with mortar and figs to support it.
A lot of custom work went into these to try to match photos from books and web resources. Riders were added from Flashpoint Miniatures line.
Stowage was added and some made from scratch to add some details that one normally doesn't see at this scale.
I used MIG Pigments for the Vietnam earth ground colours. The mud was applied using a plaster, pigments, and brown paint mixture and then airbrushed/brushed on.
Some head swaps were done to mix it up a bit.
A couple types of washes were used; my own mix of oil paint washes of various colors and CGR Painters Magik Mudd Wash black.
The chainlink fence was made from tulle.
The straps are a mixture of greenstuff and thin cut masking tape
The barb ware is Galeforce Nine product.
The aerials are Beadalon bead stringing wire, black.
The corrugated sheets are styrene.
The decals are from Battlefront Miniatures
It has been a pleasure painting these up for Scale Creep Miniatures.
Hopefully I have done these justice for all that have actually used them in service.
Next up on the plate is either some more Vietnam, WWII, or sst mechs.
Really beautiful work Steve! The extra work on the stowage, crew and weathering really have paid their dividends. I like that that the actual mortars from the carriers can be deployed separate of the vehicles and that you have dismounted crew to serve them.
These two platoons of M113s will give Steve 93 points. Great job!
