wow, this is some fantastic build! whatever happened to it?
are there more finished photos?
Those cast metal tracks are making me re-think my build...aaarrggghhh!
But very nice, very nice!
Sonny, thanks very much. What happened to it... well, um, it kind of turned into one of those things ... I became a little frustrated with the base which didn't really turn out how I wanted it, and I also ended up feeling, rightly or wrongly, that the weathering on the tank just wasn't quite right, it was somewhat too subtle. So basically I deliberately left it alone with the intention of redoing parts of it - except like a lot of people, I haven't quite got around to it! I am thinking of stripping the base back a bit, then repainting it and weathering the tank in to match. I quite liked that painted mud effect in the photos, but ended up covering that over in order to blend in the bits where it meets the tank, and that's what needs to be fixed.
Yes, the tracks, the tracks... part of the problem with this model is that the tracks are just so very noticeable, and those in the kit are just so very thick and rubbery looking.
Interesting looking back at this thread how I completely messed up the depth of field on the photos... doh. I will get around to taking and posting some photos to show the current state of it.
