That's a grand-prize, blue ribbon winning whiff if ever I saw one, Antonio!

The weathering is superb and the guy pushing it is a great touch!

This is excellent!  if you hadn't shown it to us from the beginning,  I wouldn't believe it's a mouse.

Sorry for my late arrival here, but I have just stumbled across this build and I had to say something! That is by far some of the coolest scratch building I have seen in ages. What an excellent use for an old mouse, and your paint work is just flawless. Brilliant just doesn't quite feel an adequate enough adjective for me here.

2) A model doesn't yell at you for spending money on another model
