I started off with the Troop Commander mounted in a venerable M113. Not content to just build a basic M113, I opened up the rear cargo hatch and glued in the Company command figure.
Also I constructed a rolled camouflage net, made of a bit of Miliput and some model railway leaves (as per the article that Evan wrote for the release of 'Iron Maiden'). Then I raided my parts collection to get hold of a rolled Tarpaulin and a rolled up Air Recognition Panel.
As a command vehicle I determined that it would be best to be able easily spot it on the table, so I attached two antennae. Finally I topped it off by hand brushing a Winter Verdant MERDC camouflage scheme on, along with adding some cavalry markings from the Vietnam range and the usual tactical markings from the 'Team Yankee' M113 kit.
Right: Notice the orange Air Recognition Panel on the top and red/white cavalry making on the side
