Wow. Well done, especially at that scale. The designer of the G4 would be spinning in his grave if he could se what had become of his beautiful machine, though...

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I like it.

Just a couple days ago I was looking at my Rommel's Rod kit and thinking I need a second one.  Trade out the tracks for wheels (like yours) and paint it up in either Panzer Grey or Black staff car color.  Just to be different.

I like that Idea  :cheers:

And Su this is a great model I didn't realize just how tiny it was until I saw that lighter next to it. Jaw dropper with excellent detail  :bow:
