Absolutely stunning! I could look at this for a long time, and find new things to be impressed about.

Your ability to weather/age/add/realism is something I sincerely wish I possessed, as your ability to translate the 1:1 world we see, to what is on the model, is superb, and you have a great deal to be proud of on this model. I am indeed jealous of your abilities.

Any interest in online tutorials? ?

Excellent work - very realistic! I had no idea they made a model of such a thing.

Its the only one that I know of in 1/35 scale.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I have been asked several times to do tutorials but never have the time. Still considering especially YouTube videos.

I would certainly watch them. I do use a lot of Mig Ammo/AK Interactive products, watch their related videos, read Damaged/Weathering mags etc. I do try to improve, but just like art, some people have a natural talent for it. Just having the concept, the paint, and brushes does not make one an artist, although a non-gifted person can certainly improve their skills. That is where I feel I am, not an artist at all, but capable of learning/improving. Rest assured, I will be borrowing liberally from your work here, on my shop forklift. 😉

Fantastic weathering!  Just the right amount and not over-done.  Stealing ideas!

Hasegawa makes a whole line of interesting and oddball construction vehicles in 1/35 scale. They even make 2 sets of construction worker figures, one set inside a warehouse with a vending machine, and the other road workers.  Both sets include 1 female worker.  Since the kits are 1/35, there's already an unlimited number of figures, accessories, tools etc. from Armor World that can be used with them.

I couldn't resist this 1/35 scale Yanmar Combine. It looks like something out of a Mad Max movie.

I had to look at this to see what it is and glad I did. What a great looking model. Brings a smile to my face seeing the talent you have to make it so real. So cool!

I bought that kit wirh plans to convert it into  some kind of Sci-fi vehicle. But it didn't turn out the way I planned. So i put the parts into my box of tricks.

Awesome workmanship on this vehicle.  Without these, many of our vehicles would be toast.

That is incredible. 

The realism is off the charts, and the subject is so bizarre it makes me smile ear-to-ear.

Phenomenal job on a truly offbeat subject.

Congrats on making us all look bad! :)
