I wouldn't go too far as saying that is terrible. Is it as realistic as yours? Nah. Is it terrible? I think it's far above a rainbow box tank with 4 wheels

And to think he's sold 91 of those tanks!
That reminds me; I should purchase the Leopard 2 pieces tomorrow.

I think bias should factor in scores. For example, when I don't like someone I rate them lower than my friends.

If you're biased just say you are, then get a secondary judge to take over.

Honestly, my schedule in the "salt mines" is packed as it is. Once the weekend rolls in I'll start judging people.
I've got till the nineteenth anyway (nothing like last minute rush XD).

lol, you do know that this is the brikwars forums right?

Besides, all opinions are biased. Judging is balanced by having people who disagree and hate each other judge everything.

I actually think the turret front sloped area looks better that way. Kinda looks more secure/stable and looks pretty seamless :tiger:

Im hugely in love with the three exposed studs on the front of the sloping parts of the turrets. I do thin the black technic pins that are exposed on the barrel don't look that great. Maybe swap them out for a grey pin, or cover the spot with a sticker?

I like the exposed studs too. It's annoyingly popular for people to go out of their way to tile over studs rather than making them work them work as texture and detail.

I think it is always nice to leave a but of stud so you still get the feel that it is a LEGO model.
