Wow Pete! That build is amazing. You really captured the look of the desert scheme and the weathering is spot on. Nice build bruh.

That's awesome, Pete!

Mine will be from the Big Red One's 1st Engineer Battalion. I guess I know what I'll be doing for the combat engineer campaign.

"Awesome" is really the word to describe both the real thing and this beautifully-done model. Or rather: "replica" as it's so much more than merely a model as it sits there.

Very nice! What technique did you use for the chipping on the dozer blade?
