Shes coming along great! And love the detail painting on the treads, I did that years ago and gave up and just slather mud and dirt all over the steel links and rubber pads.

Hello!

It's lookin' good! I'm looking forward to the base - your bases are always very creative but also informative! Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Looking great, Mike!  I'd put a little bit of rust into that spade though. Bare metal would rust overnight, wouldn't it? Stick some "dirt" in there too!

Karl - not to fear, rust and mud is coming. Want a little bit of everything to show at the end....but plenty of mud...some dry and some wet! Thanks
