The old Tamiya Chally 1 with the Accurate Armour dozer blade added. Apart from the dozer blade, the tank was pretty much built OOB with the exception of the amber beacon, for which I used a 3mm orange LED. Painted with Tamiya acylics.

Alas, yes and that's a great shame as it is a great looking build. Hang your head in shame PB :evil:

Cool! I really like the raw steel effect on the blade. Very nice touch.

You did a real nice job with the thermal wrapping on the barrel too. Any tips?

Thanks, guys.
The thermal sleeve was simply painted as per the instructions and given a dark oil wash to pick out the details and folds.

I really like that, Paddy. Lots of subtle shading on the overall colour, and of course the weathering on the tank and dozer blade look great.
