The build, colors & painting are all top-notch! But, for a tank rumbling around Aleppo, I think it should have more dust all over it.

Very nice build !

There is a video on the youtube where you can see one beining hit by a anti tank weapon and the commander being ejected out of his hatch and miraculously gets up with only shreds of of his uniform on his body and runs away (to safety ?)

Thank you Jack, Maarten and Cesar. Yes, there are some incredible tank videos from Syria on YouTube. There was one video where a TOW missile missed by about a foot right over the commander hatch. Lucky day indeed.

Best wishes,

Ian
