3ft - Hope

This is my IAPLC 2014 submitted tank. I was shock when IAPLC committee decided to change the rule so late. Normally in any competition that I knew of, judging rule was finalize before the competition start, so that the participant can scape their tank according to the rule. Never the less, I considered my self lucky to be able to get rank #16.

Unfortunately I cannot post the FTS (Front Tank Shot) now, at least until 26 October 2014 after the IAPLC party. It is nothing new, something that ADA have been requested to all high ranker tank. Be patient and wait, in the meat time I post some snap shot of the tank.

Some mini fern.
