Gary,

Everything looks fantastic!  The weathering on the tractor, the figures, etc.  Can't wait to see it all finished.

Hello Alexis, Paul, WD and Steve - thanks for your kind words. I wish I had a finished project to show you, but the limber wheels sent by ResiCast for my missing pair were the wrong ones, so I wait another month of two to see if that can be rectified.

Meanwhile I was able to get the tractor more or less completed, so here's a couple of pictures.
Cheers,
Gary

Thanks to all for following along this project - I put the finishing touches onto everything after receiving my missing limber wheels from ResiCast. Here are a few pictures. I wanted to pose everything in a scene indicative of deployment or preparation for transport.
Cheers,
Gary

I must say I'm not terribly interested in ground pounders and don't usually comment but this vignette is truly outstanding and I have to congratulate you on such a terrific creation. Hats off!

Thanks for that, Paul. I have to extend my gratitude to you for sending those figures. They are truly exquisite. And they led to having the diorama turn out the way it did.
