My first thoughts were poor bstards inside, as a depiction of the photo this model is spot on, it doesn't glorify or promote warfare and it doesn't make light of the subject. Spot on, nice work Charles.

Hmm, a bit close to home perhaps, however I certainly can't criticise the quality and execution of the build, and it's certainly a very unique way to build the kit.

The only point I'd make, all that .50 cal ammo wouldn't still be neatly in the ammo can.
