I'm getting the embedded YouTube video clips without any issues on both the office PC running Chrome and my Android phone running Pale Moon. 

Nice collection! I hate to be a spoilsport but I did see some seams, decal silvering, floating tracks etc. Check out Finescale Modeler magazine who host this site, they run a lot of great articles on how to deal with stuff like this. I really don't want to knock your hard work. These problems aren't that hard to fix and your models will look great with just a little more work in those areas.

Concur, only minor quibbles.

Like inthe M41 Walker Bulldog, Tamyia led you astray, US Jerry cans of the era have three bar handles:

The strap on there is OD green, not a brown color (if you deliberately mismatch the jerry can paint--very prototypical--the green-on-green blandness will be broken up).

The turret stars went on nicely, but they are supposed to parallel the horizon (can remember if the Tamiya destructions show them crokked or not).

Also, you have to be careful with camera angles.  You do not have to fill in the empty space above the track under the upper hull, but you have to no photograph at an angle that allows a person to see through the entire vehicle.

Might want to try some MicroSol on those decals, to see if they might settle down a little tighter and take the silvering away.  That is unless you have already sealed the vehhicle in matte or satin clear.

Good work over all, though.
