Nice jeep. I love the duck tape and bird poo - wonderful touches.
The hoot T strap downs turned out ok.
The color scheme is well blended and uniform.
The scale on that shotgun looks like he's hunting Elephants - that barrel is a monster.

Awesome build James. Love the weathering. The bird dropping and the tape repair are great details. Groundwork looks great as well.

Looks great.
The bird crap, and duct tape really are the finishing touches. :-)
