Another micro Hobby Boss Soviet tank. The tracks were tricky because I like to build them, wrap them around the running gear, and then pull them back off before they dry. The drive sprocket attaches on a super short pin in a very shallow depression. The only way I could get it to stay in place was to apply a very tiny bit of super glue to hold it in place and then pop it off afterwards. The tracks themselves were a pain as they are very tiny and don't have much surface area to connect to each other. I think I added about four more links per side to get a bit of a sag. One thing I really liked about this kit is for almost every PE part, there was a plastic counterpart to it. Having built so many Hobby Boss Soviet tanks in a row, I saved a major headache and used the plastic pieces every time. Compared to all the other ones I built, I couldn't tell a difference. The exhaust grill attaches over an empty hole so as a minimum, the lower inside of the tank should be painted black. One of my faster Hobby Boss Soviet tank builds thanks to the plastic replacement parts for the PE. Interesting looking tank. Recommended for unusual Soviet tank fans but because of it's size, I'd only pick it up if it was on sale.
