...been working on a couple of HL Pershings.
Both fitted with a tamiya barrel KV1 tracks ( to look closer to ww2 spec)and cast effect on the turrets/hulls.
The finished ones my battler so has an IBU, servo recoil etc

Wow, cool Frank, cast effect looks really good :thumbup: :clap:

But is there three I can spy?

And as usual, a question, is it a straight swap with the tracks or do you have to modify the sprocket?

The third ones a WIP Tammy Super Pershing.
The sprockets are Bulldog ones...work a treat with the tracks...the tracks themselves are a little too wide, but are within my budget, unlike the proper metal alternatives...;)

Beautiful cast texture. What method did you use?

You're bound to get more praise, the tanks do look great
What a difference it makes, you would believe it was metal. :clap:

Thanks Frank. I asked cos I wasn't sure if you meant ordinary decorating filler lol.

And I have this stuff. Mind you, I don't know how well it would bond to plastics.

Bought a tube of the Tamiya putty and was not really pleased with it,bit too soupy for my likes,prefer Squadron green or white though they seem to have a tendency to harden in the tube with age making them unusable after 5-6 months.

Maybe if you had place the tube into some warm water might extend the life.Works sometimes.
