    It's been a long while since I posted pictures of a model. This one was not very difficult, but I got distracted (and read a few books) while building it, so it took just about forever to finish. It was my first (and maybe last) tank model. :oops:

    I should hope it's not your last, that's a pretty darn nice looking build you
    got there.

    Looks like it came out really well! Jules models are well designed from what I've seen. I think you need to do more armor!:thumb:

    Barx,
    That's a fine piece of armor you've got there.:thumb: You really did a great job. I hope it's not your last. :cry: Jules' models are very nice, after seeing yours, I have a notion to order some of my own.

    wow! very neat work Barx, I knew you are the best builder since I saw you built my haunebu II model design. Thanks guys for the nice words,

    ahh btw I released new armor model it's M2A2 Bradley, can be yours with 2 USD dollars and it really looks good if place side by side with abrams, as it is with the same scale 1/43. From what I read on wiki, bradley was designed to help abrams in battle, but history said bradley kills more than abrams did.. who's helping who LOL

    Thanks for the good words. I was very happy with the way the Abrams came out and the Bradley would look nice on the shelf next to it. Here's a picture of me shopping for a Bradley at the state fair a couple of weeks ago. :)

    Jules, that Bradley looks really great. I like how you made the turret rotate. I bought one.

    :D it finished last night (11.30pm GMT+7) so I only have a few minutes before my eyes get soared. The Bradley gonna enter the "photo session" this evening. It will be placed here (currently only 2 pics) & will be macro pics.

    What a design. How many parts actually, Jules?
