I went to a show in Simpsonville, SC (thanks Piedmont State Modelers!!) and was disappointed they didn't have much in WWI Armor for sale, and this makes it worse!!!

Awesome build!!

You need to do a tutorial on the track weathering.

Rob, outstanding work ! Old school weathering techniques still hold up well. Did you ever consider adding a figure for scale?
Great to see something from the Great War ! Thanks for posting !

Looks fantastic! I think I like these British tanks in the captured German colors more than the British colors!

I have mentioned this 1,000 times in modeling/history forms all over the 'net, but if you have not listened to the Dan Carlin Hardcore History Podcast (free) called "Countdown to Armageddon" you should go do so immediately!

If you are interested in WWI; it's 6 parts; many many hours in length; and really fascinating.
