Okay, so all the wheels and tracks are installed. I see on the pic that I missed some of the lower outside edges when going over the tracks - and really not too worries about the top side, since that will be covered. While doing the edges, I may dirty up the upper/inside of the track on the bottom side a bit as well.

Yes... I know the brown is not a 100% desert shade. But really, an auto guy that has ANY shade of brown is surprising... close enough for me!

Some more progress. With these sections (esp the turret section I have now started) I am finding just how little I know about these types of builds. My usual painting techniques does not quite match some of the patterns these are supposed to be built in - but it's still fun and I learn a lot! And that's what this is supposed to be about.

Anyhow, current state - wheels have company.

Yeah, armor is a whole other beast than airplanes or ships. I'm not so good on them either.

sorry for being absent for bit, I had to get some other projects out of the way first.

This kit is rather poor, I am having to rescribe all of the pannel lines because they are almost non existant. I did the fus. now I'll have to do the wing too.

speaking of the wing, the fit to the fus. was pretty bad, and I had to shim it with some Evergreen strip.

Also the resin gun pods don't fit well either. you will see in the pics that I am going to have to putty of Mr Surfacer the joints to make them look better.

But here are a few pics for now...

I want to fair in the pods then scribe a seperation line around them once the putty dries tonight.
