Loved this great vehicle since the first time I saw a video of it in action.  You're really doing this machine justice by the great scratch work!  There's some great video of these things in action around Marjah Afghanistan including one where a local taliban seems to be getting ready to launch an RPG and the ABV drops one of its detcord lines on him.  Nothing but sand and dust and one shoe.  Keep up the great work!

Nice one! I especially respect the fact that you have what it takes to back up one or two moves and correct te error, even if it means doing the tough job once again... Good luck with your build and keep 'em pics comin'

Holy Bow Down This is freakin' EXQUISITE!!!

EXQUISITE!!!

It's been a long time since I've seen such dramatic and incredible scratchbuilding, and on such a complex scale! Congratulations on a spectacular display of your skill!

My serious recommendation--copyright it. I can seriously see some Chinese company stealing your idea and work and making this into a kit. No lie.

Beauiful and extremely impressive scratchbuilding!!!! And an insanely cool-looking vehicle taboot!

But one thing- how can you copyright a scratchbuilt plastic model? I dont really understand how you can secure rights to produce a miniature version of a vehicle that you yourself did not design.
