That is all some really impressive work there! Like Hunter says, the scribing is very neat and tidy.

I really like the shape of the door cutout, I kind of hope you're going to pose it open for that reason, but I can see it would spoil the lines a bit. Will be interesting to see how you decide to present this one after the fantastic setting for the doommonowheel :)

Wittman... I hate you, man. You are so good with the scratch-building it makes me want to cry.

I don't know that there would be a market for it, but if there were ever a video tutorial about scratch-building by you, I'd buy it.

Oh, God, rivets.  I did an MG Gogg with a bunch of rivets once, and that was enough.  Though yours seems to be going along rather nicely!  Good luck!
I do other things, too.
