I remember buying the kit on eBay, but it was fraud (at least I got my money back except for the currency fee). I also bought the metal barrel, now I only have the metal barrel.

???? that sucks... it's a great kit. My second Meng AMX based build, this time got the suspension working. The PE set ist too much for me, will only use it Parti ally like door handles.

I can highly recommend this circle cutter for masking tank wheels. It really makes nice cuts if you can take care of the tiny blade (sits half loose inside the cutter and will fall out if you give the circle cutter a slight bump, important to take out the blade for storage, or maybe you could adjust the black to go back in and hope it doesn't fall out by accident when you don't want it to). I was not able to make nice circular patches of masking tape 0.5 mm wide, but I guess such a dimension is more extreme.
So, you can either make a circular patch from masking tape, or, a piece of masking tape with a hole in it, to airbrush the center of the wheel including some raised edges just there where the "green" meets the "rubber black".
Here is a randomly chosen review of the circle cutter I use. I think I've seen other make similar products.

It's been a while since my last entry, roughly 3 years to be specific. I took a break from scale modelling since my wife became pregnant, returning to the hobby now. Glad to be back, really missed that smell of Tamiya Extra Thin...
My new project is launched, hope I haven't forgotten all the basics already...

Welcome back! You will be fine, it's like riding a bike (although you might be a bit wobbly at first
