Paweł,
I like this model a lot. What you did with the exterior armor (the wear differences) is a nice touch. Great job!

Pawel, fantastic product! The color variations you've achieved are superb! The kit must have come with a great PE set from all the detail I see. I think this may be the best unmodified kit I've ever seen. Might just be the lighting, but does the area inside the tow rope seem a little too clean compared to it's surroundings?

Pawel, weathering looks like the vehicle has see a lot of hard use without looking overdone - all around excellent work! The round objects abeam the gun on the front cheek armor - pistol ports?

If so, the semi-circle scratching below them - to simulate the ports open and swinging from their anchor chain?

Thank you all for your kind words.
@ Frederick, exactly the effect I wanted, often pistol ports were open, probably in order to purge the interior and ear flapping of armor and damaged the camouflage.

Great paint chipping…not overdone, but done appropriate to reasonable wear. Profound weathering. Great subtlety.

Ye, pistol ports. Dragon version comes with small chains attached to them. Awesome job!
