I am thinking a 2 or 3 tone camo similar to my E-555, the German bomber I just did. and might try the hairspray trick on it. We shall see.

Actually starting to look like a tank....











As you can see in the pics the main barrel connection to the turret is not complete. I need to make a canvas cover around the main gun mantle.

question for you guys, what do you guys use to do that? white glue and tissue paper? something else? any special tricks?

Started working on the wheels. Found out that all the wheels have a lip on them from the molding that needs to be sanded down. In the pic below the lip is visible on the lower wheel and the upper wheel has been sanded down.

Added side rails, filled in holes on the turret that were to be used by kit parts I am replacing with PE and resin, finished all the wheels, one of the treads and started the headlight guards...

Scratch building the rear turret basket from parts of the PE kit and some wire I had laying around. Getting the first wire in was a big or something to that effect.
