    As you know I have seen that tank develop from day one and I still have a soft spot for it.

    All those minor moves we worked out have certainly paid off.

    That tank now has a mind of its own it knows where its going.

    Looking very good.

    Can I see a few too many snails as well?

    The way you have used those small smooth river stones make it extremely realistic.
