That pic was just a composition "test". I will be using a different and bigger city picture for the final, and the tank will be closer.

BMS: I'm glad you noticed my challenge entry, and thanks for the comment

mc-fleury: Thanks for the comment I was hoping to have some modeling updates to show earlier this week, but I have been busy with some other stuff. I don't really have a whole lot more to do to the tank. I have got to make myself sit down and finnish the detail work on it. The deadline is approaching.

Cheers t1ck135! Should have modeling updates to show today; however, finding a better and bigger city pic has proven harder than I thought. I hope I can find one for the tank before deadline.
