What type is the Esci M113. What I need is a M113 and not a M113A1.

Hi Bjorn

I am in Brugge so away from my refs, so this is going from memmory, but i believe the Esci kit is a M113A1, Later pattern head lights and no oval plate around the fuel filler cap on the roof of the Hull rear, also the rear mudguards do not have the channel in them which may also be an indicator its a A1 version.

I have been trying to find photos of the roof of a Peterol Engined M113 to model one and do a interior with the correct fuel tank etc, but so far have not been able to find any refs on line.

Only the M113, M106, and M557 were built on the petrol engined hull all other variants did not start prodution until the M113A1 series hulls.

Cheers

Ian

I may be able to help with that - there is a small armor museum at the local NG post - I can have a look if you tell me what details are recognition points.
