Paulster Posted January 5, 2014 Share Posted January 5, 2014 Have the chassis done, minus paint of course. Tamiya kit. Fruil tracks, Voyager Basic pe upgrade and Legends and Mig T-55 fender fuel tanks upgrade. Used about 60% of the Voyager set as some it seemed almost silly to use as a kit replacement. I will break this down into a few segments as I don't want to bombard you all with 30 something pictures all at once. Step one was to assemble the tracks. Did them in 10 link lengths then put them together to make them 82 links per side. I then soaked them in Micro Scale's "Blacken It". Waste of time. Going to have to paint them anyway. Threw the rest away. I made the track painting jig a few builds ago. Balsa wood, cost about $3 to make. Then I assembled the road wheels, taped them to an opened up empty Coors Light box. Always seem to have one of those around somewhere. Then I primed and then sprayed the rubber part with MM enamel "Helo Drab". Unless otherwise noted, all colors are MM enamels. Next was to cut all the molded on fender brackets to make room for the Voyager replacements. Fill all the pin marks under the fenders. Then prime with Tamiya Surface Primer. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
