Very nice. I love the colors and the weathering. However those thick blue ropes don't look very convincig, in my opinion.

Thanks Mario. I was trying my best with the rope, couldn't find a right material for it. Do you have any suggestions how to make it better next time?

I used a woven rope from Accurate Armour as tow ropes for my CVRt Scorpion build. It was a similar material to the ropes you used, and I wasn't too satisfied with it either.

Perhaps painting the ropes, giving them a slight wash and dust coat would make them stand out less?
