Very Nice !!!
But the MGs and Mk.19 should have light wash of black, they are much too "bright". They are a dark blue-gray gun metal.

For the Tracks – scroll down look as these pics. TMP link

Rusty tracks with black rubber track pads …

And yes, in the '80s in the US Army our M113s had the .50 with the ability to attach the M47 Dragon MAW.

After serving in 3 Mech Bns and commanding a Mech Co. of M113s, I can be a little picky… evil grin

We only saw pictures the Mk.19.

And Yes the AH64 started to replace the AH1 in the US ARMY in about the mid '80s.

My Team Yankee Soviets have been delayed in reaching the tabletop, so meanwhile I managed to slip a few M-113s off to our friends in Ukraine, Old Guard Painters.

M-113s

This is the plastic boxed set from Battlefront, and my instructions to the painters were simple: match what's on the box cover! grin

M-113s

As with any project, though, gremlins seem to sneak in! Here's the M-113 with standard .50 cal machinegun:

It's not mentioned on the box or the manufacturer's website, but the sprues in this set allow for another option…

M-113 with alternate weapon

… and the painters gave me two models with this armament! Oh well! grin

M-113 with alternate gun

We discussed this on the forum, and if I remember rightly, it's a grenade launcher that was sometimes used.

M-113s

I use magnetic storage for my models, so I chose to base these models on large Flames of War bases, with LITKO FlexSteel on the bottoms.

M-113s

I'm sure there are more M-113s in my future, as I can't hold off all the Soviet hordes with one platoon of M1s, one platoon of M-113s, and two Apaches! grin

M-113s

I also need to get some actual infantry figures ready for the fight! (I usually do infantry first, but I used the starter boxes this time.)

M-113

My usual preference is to have only one vehicle with the commander exposed, but I neglected to tell the painters. Mea culpa.

M-113

Soviets coming soon!
