  1. Very nicely done

  2. Terrific job on a complicated kit , I’ve seen a couple of these at club days and it is a very interesting subject,there is some footage on youtube of the Isreali’s using these to very convincing effect.

  3. Thiis the first time I heve seen this kit built up.
    You have really done it justice. The weathering accents it. I am glad you put the Merkava in the shot. Never realized just how big these are.
    Well done.

  4. I’ve seen this build done two other times, and I must say, I’m impressed by all of them. This one is beautifully done and photographed. Nice work, sir.

  5. Amazing mate. Very impressive weathering!

  6. That is definitely a big tractor!!
    When you see it next to the Merkava you see how big.
    Nicely done and well weathered too.
    Some good pics thrown in as well.

  7. Looks like a real brute. I think that Meng’s choice of subject was right on the money here. And you’ve done it proud…

  8. that is a nasty looking doomsday machine…i’d hate to be a Palestinian bottle thrower facing that thing..give you nightmares

  9. Imagine you’re getting a “cyber high five” for a great looking model. Fantastic work on the weathering and good looking photos as well.

  10. That’s absolutely brilliant!

  11. Nice looking “crawler”, prototypical weathering.

  12. Really impressive model, Olivier, beautifully built and finished.

  13. Superb monster, congratulations for your job


  14. Olivier,
    Gorgeous. You did an excellent job on this. I had no idea the real thing was so big.
