Well, late to my own party! ;D

OK, gotta start somewhere & this is it:



I've barely even looked at the sprues, so this is going to be as much an adventure for me as I hope it is for you! :thumbsup:

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I'm reminded of Captain Lawrence Oates  :angel:

Must admit that's one of the reasons I've avoided a lot of large scale armour over the years, best of luck  :thumbsup:

With that hull shape you could omit the tracks altogether, add a fat skirt and make a hovercraft from it.  ;D

Build it, leave the tracks off, and lovingly paint it shades of rust?

I'll get it done (he says hopefully) but this thing has four sets of tracks compared to a normal tank's two &, rather than the sensible decision to go with link-&-length, they've gone the full indy links.

The one bonus is that I don't intend doing an intricate paint job on the tracks, just plain black (maybe with a quick, light dry-brush of metallic-grey/steel).


Captain Lawrence Oates? :unsure: Maybe not quite that self-sacrificing! :angel:

What?
I'm having no part of it.  I've given up individual link tracks.  Sworn off them.  They are dead to me.
