boy howdy i have done that more  than once on an M60A2 in the BRD. it's not fun in the motor pool. in the field in ankle deep mud in January it's even less fun. yhis is not a criticism but,  IIRC we usually attached the track between the front idler (which is in the front) where the sprocket is on the TIGER and the first road wheel. of course we also rail loaded with the tracks hanging off both sides of the flatcar. if i smelled diesel exhaust while looking at that pic it would take me back 35 years.

A very cool presentation....love the figures' action poses.  Say, here is a humble suggestion:  given how soupy and wet that mud looks, why not use your airbrush and blow air against a paint brush with some mud loaded on it and create a "splatter mud effect" on the panels just above the tracks all along the length of the tank?  I think it would add even more realism to your great build...keep up the nice work!

That's some nice work. 

Thanks for kicking her back to the top since I didn't see this back in '15.
