:shock: Oh Man, this is really unbelievable. I can't believe this is 20mm!! It deserves a picture showing it's scale.

How did you do the embossed number, the decals don't show any shine, the rust is soooooo real, ...

The commander is very nice... but if you photogrpahed that model without him and with the right background it would be difficult to tell its not the real thing! Superb.
