Academy, 1/35, IDF M113 fitter

Hi guys,
This is my last project:
, , , ,.
It's an excellent kit with good details and close to perfect fit.
The only thing are the decals, the worst decals ever...? and believe me I tried everything...
Anyway, most recommended if you can find one.
Colors and weathering effects by Ammo Mig and tamiya.
Have a great week, guys!

  1. Good looking PC Allon. Nicely done.

  2. Exceptional work, Allon. The build quality and finishing are perfect, despite the problems with the decals. The subtle weathering gives it a 'real' quality - great photos, too.
    'Like' this a lot.

  3. "...excellent kit...", indeed. One of the best variations of the M-113 I've seen. Great job!

  4. That is an awesome ride! Love anything IDF and dirty. You nailed it. Does it have an internal compartment? I dont think I ever saw this Academy model.

    • Thank you Paul!
      Yes it has full interior and BTW, very accurate.
      I didn't shoot it, but here is the rear entrance,.

  5. Looks great, Allon! I've ridden in and driven quite a few M113s and yours captures the look of a very special version perfectly!

    You hit a Home Run with this one, my friend.

  6. Thank you all, guys!

  7. Another great M113!

  8. Fantastic build. I love the beautiful weathering.

  9. This really stands out Allon, as has been stated the weathering really adds authenticity to an interesting looking subject!

  10. That is sweet Allon. I'd love to be able to weather armour like that. It's just right.


  11. Nice piece of armour! The weathering is spot on.

  12. Thank you for your nice words, guys!

  13. Highly realistic result, I really like this.

  14. Excellent work. Sorry the decals didn’t turn out as wished. We’ve all been there. The detail is spot on.

  15. wow, i envy you so much Alon 🙂
    I would kill for this kit, unfortunately, almost impossible to get it these days 🙁
    You built and painted it absolutely superb

  16. next time, contact me for decals 😉

  17. Hi Allon, amazing build!

    If I may ask, what color have you used as a base? I really like it.

      • Amazing, thanks Allon.

        Is this the color you used for all your IDF builds? The Merkava seems to have a different hue, but I am not sure if its the weathering and photography.
