Additions to 'BIG JOE'

Forgot to put the barbed wire roll on 'BIG JOE' here it is, all weathered and slightly rusty

BIG JOE part 2

My first completed 28mm M113 ACAV 'BIG JOE'...not much to say except hope it looks alright :)


My dad (who is the man behind all the lovely sculpts at Parkfield Miniatures) has recently completed and cast off a few M113s for Parkfield's Vietnam range. There are 2 variants avaliable; the M113A1 and the M113 ACAV. Being part of Parkfield Miniatures myself and sharing the love of wargaming it's always great to receive a few little gifts to 'try out' the figures. Here is one such 'try out' an M113 ACAV.

Above is the basic kit. It contains everything needed to make the M113A1...not entirely sure if the side skirts come in the basic pack or not
These are the ACAV additions to the basic extra GI to stand in the rear compartment manning one of the M60s, 2 M60s with shields and armour for the commanders cupola
Some stowage that Parkfield will be selling separately...great for personalising the M113s
Some weapons I scrounged from my dad's spare bits bag...2x M16s, 1x M79, 3x LAWs and 2x Canteens...
The commanders cupola side armour with plastic strips…


Just thought I'd add some small details to a couple of my Irish Serb Hummers...some "DANGER STAY BACK!" signs
