Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Overall, this is one of the most concise coverings of M113 conversions that I have seen to date. It has a wealth of information covering the variants of the M113, and a great overview of scratch building and conversions. Definitely a must have for modelers of all skill levels, as there is something for everyone contained in these pages.” —Mark Smith, Armorama (March 2005)

“Modelling the M113 Series by Graeme Davidson is a long awaited Osprey modeling manual that finally covers one of the most influential modern armored personnel carriers produced by the Western nations... The book is highly recommended for the modern armor modeler, especially M113 fans.” —Sabot, Armorama (August 2005)
