Looks good to me , only thing and just a small one is I think the head deals might be a tad to long.
Nice rocks I like the color.
Great looking dogs also.
The one with the rump to the camera appears to be a Husky.
The other a Shepherd breed?

Thanks. Reef. I'll dig out my shemaghs and measure them, see how these work out scale-wise.

The hounds - good call on Bella (the black one) - we think she's part German Shepherd part Chow (black spots on the tongue) but as they are both 'rescue' dogs we really aren't sure.

The other dog (Tigger) actually looks like a miniature German Shepherd, apart from the 'Hong Kong Dog' curly tail:

Looks absolutely fantastic Action Man! I like the outdoor shots of the Jeep! Nicely done loading it down as well!

Did you take those photos in Hong Kong? Or did you have to go to the mainland to shoot them?

Regardless - they look fantastic! Thanks for sharing them!

Fred

P.S. I like your dogs as well! What a great family outing!

Thanks, Fred - the dogs are my 'scouts'!

I shot these photos here in Hong Kong, about 10 minutes drive from me in the north-west New Territories. The location is marked on this map:

Jeep Photo Shoot - Google Maps

(The reason the dogs are my scouts is that this is one of my regular walking trails with them - over the course of the years we have seen a VERY large Burmese Python, Wolf snake, Red-necked Keelback snake, Muntjac 'Barking' Deer, feral cows and water buffalo, two illegal immigrants and been chased by a full-on wild boar with extremely larkge tusks! Hong Kong isn't all high-rise urban jungle, as you can see by the map).

I think that Hog would be the worst of the bunch.

Scary fellows at night.

Good job on the Dogs both look healthy.

Dear God man! You should carry a SAS appropriate firearm to fend off the pythons/feral cows!

Thanks for providing the link and marking the spot on Google Maps. I thought Hong Kong was all city and ports... Fascinating!

Again - nice work AM!

Fred

Fred, Hong Kong always surprises people. When we came the first time in 1995 we were amazed at how green it was. I now say we have everything here except snow!

Amaral, I didn't do anything to the Jeep except add the figures, weapons, packs, etc. and yes - it is HK!
