Very well done TD!
Just one small comment - not wanting to spoil the party: the soldiers have still a little "edge" on their sides, due to the production process. Would be nice if you could sand them off.

Just my 2 cts,
Jan

Some more great additions, Mrs Wingnut's Camera, picks up all the imperfections, on my models too, (I often look at the models after taking the pics, and quite often cannot see what the camera has).

Nice half track, well done, I am sure your other recent builds are of an excellent standard too, shame about photobucket.
