Vinnie,

In the M113 chapter is there any interior modifications/detail information?

I've got tons of exterior detail information, but have found very little interior infromation.

Mike,
There's very little interior information on any of the vehicles, as most of the photographs presented are exterior shots, in a walkaround style.

I have for a long time considered myself an axis WWII modeller, with very little interest in modern vehicles, never mind vehicles of the IDF. This book has changed that.



Im going to be holding you to that Vinnie.

So when's your next kit coming out?

I'm tinkering with a few ideas, but what I really want is Ian Hanratty to send me something from Legends to do a full build on! Where are you Ian!? :-)

Rats!, I was hoping for a decent set of Zelda APC w spaced perforated armor (probably not their term) interior detail shots. The Eduard set is a decent start, but there is so much more in there from what little I can gather.

Somewhere out there in the vast internet wasteland that HAS to be a complete interior photo essay of the inside of one of these things!

Mike,

have you tried this site, they are very helpful and have a huge data base of images

The book looks very promising Vinnie, thanks for the heads up
