I did think about caking it in mud, but she's also a battler so I don't want to interfere too much with the suspension for reliability...

Yea they sure caked it on in the movie. At some points I could barely see the bogies!

That looks absolutely awesome! I started my Ez8 years ago and am still figuring out how I want to do it, mainly because I had an older non option DMD. Now I think I know how to do it after just buying a built Tamiya. I know what parts I need just to build the upper half as far as option parts go and lots of ETO metal details on a new upper hull and all the rotation elevation parts after market from AAF.
While watching the movie I thought of detailing mine out and painting it Fury, but I figured a lot of other people will do that. So maybe I will do it as one of the other Ez8s that got popped in that last Tiger battle Besides, I cant compete with your model.

I thought the same, but then thought "what the hell, she's too good looking not to do one.."
I went the Budget route, HL hull, Mato turret and tamiya bogies. She's also fitted with a DBC so she's fully IR battle ready....

...about done....
Decided against putting "mud" on as she's going to be predominantly a battler so reliability is more important than looks....

Damn that looks good!
where did you find that .30? Ive been looking for a few. Also crew memebers. I believe 120mm figures are close, but hard to find.

...putting the finishing touches on "Fury"...she's now got a flashing LED installed in the co-ax, although toying with changing to a green bulb....(if you've seen the film you'll know why..... )
