New M113 model release, just $99!
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: New M113 model release, just $99!

Maybe a little light on detail, but ease of assembly can't be beat:




...OK, I lied...this surprise was waiting for me when I got home today...a military training model. A gift from the esteemed webmaster at the VHPAmuseum (www.vhpamuseum.org) John Conway...because he's a good egg and thought of me when he saw this at a militaria swap meet. He said there were about 40 of them, but this was the only one really intact (like, what can go wrong?...OK, the track assembly was off one side, but a little glue fixed that). It has "M113" very roughly cast or engraved on the bottom...I guess in case the "trainers" forget....

It's very close to 1:35 scale....

"It has "M113" very roughly cast or engraved on the bottom.."

That is obviously why it was available to the public. The new ones marked GAVIN have been received

Is it air-transportable? And is it amphibious?

You mean 'Bobs GAVIN'? Rolling Eyes I'm sure it is,.....

At 1/35 scale, you can throw it at Bob Shocked ,...or 'chunk it' in a lake!!! Mr. Green

I resisted the temptation to call it a "MicroG****", at least.
