BigGrin Shells painted and fitted into the racks with the etch straps [ 6 saved for the turret racks]. You can also now see why I did not remove the ejector pin marks as I knew the shells/cases would hide them. The upper deck was masked off then glued to the lower hull ready for undercoat and paint. Cool

BigGrin Tracks were undercoated then painted steel for the pins/horns and rubber black for the pads. The track set works by glueing an upper and lower pad together with the pins captured by the pads then the horns are added.

I tried the finished track on the Achilles to see how they look and there much better than I thought [ just need to add 3 more pads to complete the track ], they take time to assemble but the results speak for them selves. Cool

BigGrin Tracks are done, the spare pads and teeth in the picture are to join each track when fitted on the tank. Bronco are quite generous with there sprues as I have one complete set of each left although the carpet monster did not get to feast on any parts this time round. Cool
