Galerie de la Begemot - 2nd Edition

Post by Begemot »

The original "Galerie de la Begemot" fell victim to the recent troubles on this forum. So, like the Phoenix, it is now being reborn from the ashes of the old incarnation, as "Galerie de la Begemot - 2nd Edition".

I will repost material that was on the old thread, beginning with my MERDC work, as some have shown an interest in it.

So, the "Galerie de la Begemot" is dead! Long live the "Galerie de la Begemot - 2nd Edition" !

Early MERDC Efforts

What follows are photos of my first MERDC project, which was done back before 2014. Four M113s and two M60A1s. I was very pleased with the results overall, but thought I made the field drab color too red.

Glad to see the thread start again. Really nice work on the MERDC, it looks just like my first 113 in Korea.

Some Soviets

Shortly after I completed the previous set of MERDC vehicles I did some Soviet vehicles to give the Americans some targets. T62s, BMP-1s, and a BRDM.
