That looks really nice. The interior came out great. I especially like the LEDs to show it off. Great job.

A note on the name, it is an M1A2 SEP w/TUSK II and a mine plow added. The base vehicle is the M1A2 SEP. The rest are add on kits. Additionally, it is not called TUSK I/TUSK II. It is either one or the other as TUSK II includes the TUSK I mods and the additional TUSK II tiles on it as one kit.

Paul, that is a great looking build. That is just a beast of a vehicle all the way around. Best wishes, Ian.

I love the shell casings. How did you replicate that?

Talk about impressive tank and a great build! The mine low really adds a lot to the aggression factor.

Very Nice. I have it in my stash and it will be my Tusk II variant. Too bad there is not a build article on it. I would be very interested in seeing this project piece by piece.

awesome work and nicely done! You really did a fantastic job on the weathering and chipping, and I really like all of the extras that you have added.

Nice job!
