Holy Cat ! !   David ,  that is incredible !   One of the most realistic looking models I've seen ,  of any kind .  Lots of models have tons of details and look like their full size counterparts but there is always something that says " model " .  Your Cat nails it completely !

Congratulations !

 The painting, decaling and weathering skills you used  really bring this thing to life, and that's not to mention the photography. Great modeling.
