M113 resurrected!

Well, I started this project several years ago but because of a math error my running gear was too small. One dam decimal point messed it all up! It sat around for a while until my cats had a major battle in it and tore it up. I tossed it in the back yard because I was disgusted with the whole project and figured I could use the plastic later for another project. Now that i am catching up on all my projects I decided to clean it up and toss it back together. There was only one piece missing and probably because I used it for another project.

It's back together and still needs work but it's back on track!









As soon as I can get the running gear and tracks I'll be finishing this one up. The rest is just all little details really. The M113 is a pretty easy scratchbuild because it's just a box! LOL

Thanks guys as soon as I have the dough I'll be getting the running gear. One of the reasons it got put on hold in the first place was I messed up on the measurements (one decimal point!!!) and the running gear I made was little too small so I got disgusted with it. LOL I have a ton of parts I made including the rear door that I just can't locate. I have my stuff strewn around at three of my friends places and in my haste I really didn't keep track of what went where. I need to find parts for all my projects. My whole FOA 251 is missing and the details parts to my FOA Tiger as well as my 250 projects. Normally I am a lot more organized.
