We all remember this guy - the Tamiya M113. Doing this for a store display - enjoy!

That is just cool.  I don't think I have ever seen a presentation like that before with the parts "blown out" so you can see the interior detail.  Nicely done.

Thanks for sharing,

Awesome job and method of display. It's one of my all time favorites from my youth. Back then, I wished all model kits were like this with full interiors.

I like how you did that, very well built and a great display.

I take it you had a second kit for the extra set of roadwheel stations and the lower hull.

Oh My !

 You have taken my favorite lightskin to the next to the next to the next level . I may try a boat like that . Maybe the Lindberg Coast Guard Cutter - "Patrol Boat". I can certainly say WOW , both to the idea and the Quality of your build  ,Veerrrry Clean !

 Just think , Back in the day when Bandai had 1/48 scale full interior armor what we could've done !  T.B.

A most unique and eye catching way to show off the concealed details of this kit! Great work!

I agree with everyone else.  It's super cooooooooooooooooooolllll.

Very impressive and interesting.  It's a very cool way to display a model.  Plus, it has all the little details, like the pack of Marlboros.  Plus, I like the streeky weathering.

Grand work, in particular the "stacked" segmented display mode. The subtle weathering is nicely effected. Must be right out the repair shop, though; every battle box I saw in SEA sported a generous application of that (expletive) orange dirt, inside and out. ;-)
