I have three more to go. What I did find to help me once I start painting was a painting template for the M113 in MERDEC camo. I already have the paints I need and I am looking forward to giving it a shot. I am also exceedingly glad I only have 4 of these to do.
Now I need some recommendations. What would be good support elements for my Mechanized Platoon? It seems that an M150 (an M113 with a TOW launcher) is a good idea. Maybe a couple of jeeps as well with either TOW, recoilless Rifle or MG mounted. Would an M113 ACAV be worthwhile? Lastly, what armor to look at? For the 1982 timeframe in Germany, would an M60A2 be out of place?
