Great build. I don't know how you did it so fast. My ARV has taken 18 months so far:-)

Thank you Mike!! And thanks again for all the help!! Not sure how it moved along so well. The parts cleaned up well and fit nice...so I guess that helped. The extra scratch stuff took the most time I think!

Thank you David!! There is a fair amount of detail inside this one. Tough to see all of it when done but there are three hatches you can position open to make a good attempt!

Todd, you need to take that dozer to the motor pool for pressure washing and to touch up that well worn blade! Then you can build that model to look like it.

Wait - is that the model!??
