I love the weld detail work as well. It appears that the mantlet lift ring is missing in the picture though.

Scott
Nice work so far. Somewhere Frank Kotoski is smiling.
Mark, nice catch on the missing mantlet ring. I've looked at this photo a quazillion times and never noticed it. Great eyes.

why you chose not to replicate the applique armor as is in the photo? Would seem to be equally distinctive as a missing lift ring.

Paul,

I see what your talking about, I'll have to trim the inner most applique armor near the gun down a bit more more, along with removing the lift ring. Easy fix.
