Great job! I'm always blown away by the unexpectedly large size of the S-103.

The Strv 103C came out great! It looks like it can probably survive a sustained attack by coconut crabs.

What is that light tan color you used?

It is a dandy looking build-I keep thinking about putting legs on my Trumpeter 1/72 kit.

But can it survive the Yovian Highway Attack Crab?

I wouldn't call it "large". Overall the Strv 103 is slightly smaller than the hull of a M1 Abrams or Challenger & the lack of a turret makes it considerably lower in profile.

Sorry I missed this earlier, Frank. :-[

The colour is Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan

Doc, it's in the service of the country with some of the nastiest, bitiest critters around, of course it can! ;D
