Doc dios takes a look in the box at Academy's new M113A3 "Iraq 2003" model kit, will he be impressed with what he finds?

Hi Jeff

you get a choice of tracks in the kit either rubber band or single links both are adequate, although the singles do have sink marks on them which need to be filled.

I would replace them with Model kastern ones, but that is a personal preference of mine, you can still build a decent M113A3 out of the kit, and it need less work than the Tamiya one.
You will still need to do some modification on the kit to produce a good M113A3, but the work is easy to do, with a some good references, and shouldn't tax any body really.

HTH
