Good progress Nos B)

What about lengths of 3-5mm diameter brass rod, mounted vertically between the hull, turret and turret roof? You could even keep the hull split too

Thanks Andrew, Yeah I was thinking about that, Ive seen it done before..Or a combo..with the hull split side by side the the turret vertically off the upper hull.. On a side note...Being an armour expert ..Do you have any tips/techniques for doing hull damage? ie bent fenders and hand rails etc.

T-34 fenders were very basic. I've seen several people replace them completely with thin brass sheet, then bend and mangle them with pliers. If you don't want to replace the whole fender, you could replace the leading sections with foil (get one of those flat oven liner trays from the supermarket) and bend that up. If you want to use only the kit parts, sand them as thin as possible, then apply some gentle heat (tea candle) and bend As for grab handles, kit plastic ones will only handle minor abuse (will even often break when cleaning them up :evil: ) Get yourself some 0.5mm wire and bend replacement ones yourself. Use pliers, end of a ruler etc as a template, depending on the size of the handle required

So Ive gotten some colour down and added the decals and started some chipping..Filter,Pin wash etc next and then some dust and dirt..I will be displaying this open so the pics of the tank together are just a mock up to see how it would look if I went that way. Reasonably happy with it so far being my Third Tanky thing. Cant wait to get back to building a plane again though!!



Hopefully wont be too far away from a finish

So I ended up having some more bench time this week! Thats two weeks in a row!! I have been having a play with weathering with oils..something I have not really done before. Aside from being a little time consuming I dont mind it. Next time will be better! But still quite happy with the result so far.
