Stunning camo scheme on this, Mike, and you really did a wonderful job on the weathering of the wood applique armor. I tried building this beastie a couple of years ago, but yours turned out much, much better. Two little nits, if I may, first the upper runs of your tracks are floating, they should contact the return rollers. Second, I don't believe that the flash suppressor on the .50 cal MG was used in WWII, it didn't come along until the Vietnam era. Both appear to be easy fixes, if you're so inclined. G

Thanks Lou. I never noticed the gun barrel ( wonder where I got it?) As to the tracks, I usually do lay them down but sometimes I just get lazy and it was already in one of the 50 boxes of built kits in my upstairs closet when I was asked to submit photos for this feature
