  1. P.S.: I forgot, I did mold the mantlet. It is not in the kit.

  2. Nice one Al, a big beast on 1/72nd scale
    Lovely paint job as well, weathered just right too.
    A very well done sir.

  3. Al,
    This is a very impressive build. You have done an excellent job on this. It really must be a very sturdy and remarkable tank to traverse roads that it is sitting on here.

  4. Nice...I like it. Big difference in outdoor vs. indoor photography, huh?

  5. It looks bigger than 1/72, Al, your finish sets it off, as do the outdoor photographs.

  6. As George said, it looks bigger in scale. I have some Dragon 1/72s to build and the detail is great. The quality, price and small display size really make me think I should stick with that scale.

  7. Nice, clean build. Great photo angles, the model looks a lot bigger than 1:72.

  8. that's downright pretty
