This looks bang on James!! Will definitely be following your example when i get to painting mine. 🙂 A question if i may, looking at how you "wedged" the top of the tracks, does the track sag itself with the wedges in place or does it need encouragement with a thicker wedge to get it to set correctly? It has been suggested that tissue paper is a good way to go?

Yeah, that is a great kit. Excellent painting!

Thanks guys 🙂

@ Deltic - The wedges just help the tracks sag over the upper rollers, drive and idler wheels. The tracks themselves are made of a material that can be glued so I just literally glued them into position where the track and wheels made contact. The wedges help obtain the shape etc.

I'll have to try that Vallejo mud stuff out; I really like the way it looked.

Many thanks for your step-by-step for the painting and weathering, James. I've been waiting all week til I could have a look at your finished work, on a reasonably-sized screen. I really like the subtle gradations you have achieved, as well as the bare-metal scuffs 🙂 It all looks very convincing, and tells a story for sure!

Just curious... are the tracks ATL-03 or ATL-04? Either way, they look great!
