After doing one track I just couldnt find the enthusiasm to get to doing the other and its just sat collecting dust ever since, so this is the first on the list.View attachment 432578View attachment 432579
HA!! Yeah Mark...... Wheels and tracks can be such a mo-jo sapper:fearful:,
That`s why Tanks,AFVs with Side skirts are a bit of a fav of mine....... not that i don`t do the top half........ it just means you don`t need to be so meticulous in those areas ;)!
A Tiger must be one of the best subjects to get the "Big Beastie" juices flowing again!
I`ll watch your progress with interest Mate:thumb2:

Hi Mark, I've got one stalled too. A mistake on the bogey arms has relegated it to a disabled Tiger with a lost track from a bazooka. Will you be putting zimmerit on yours?

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Richard
Hadn't given it much thought but might look into it now you mention it.

Hi Mark
Looks as if you have already done a good bit on this so deserves to be finished. Good choice.

Look forward to seeing how you finish this off. I'm with Mr Smith when it comes to nice big side skirts, the Merkava has them to be fitted
Once I've glued all them track links together and got it on it should go together pretty quickly, fancy doing it grey but wheels are already painted yellow and I'm not sure I fancy redoing them all.

Mark,
I actually find doing track links quite relaxing but I just do a few at a time in between other parts of the build.
Excuse me Mark.

You find them relaxing Paul ----------------------- :anguished: The only one i Find relaxing are Fruils.

After FOUR Years of pain and fear i`d say that it`d be a damned shame to paint them:fearful:!!
