Very nice performed model which much passion for details.

Their quantity, the quality of the stuff by itself used (e.g. floor plates, printed maps, phone), their arrangement and finally the high-detailed painting of them (rifle, fire extinguisher etc.).

But the most astonishing thing is what makes this model being a curiosity: It is performed in the field by someone who is permanently in the line of duty.

Gino:

Your 577A2 looks awesome. Hope you were able to use some of the parts I sent to you.
Keep up the good work, both on the workbench and in the battlefield.
We can all sleep a little better, here in Canada and the USA, because of folks like you, out there at the sharp end.

Very nice work Gino!

The M577 is certainly not the prettiest one but for some reason was always my favorite int he M113 family.

Nice extra large bucket, Gino I really like that interior - although it would probably be even more crowded and messy in real life.

Thanks for sharing
