I've decided to fix a few things on my P3.

So I started with some new shoes. Very Happy
I got a set of Impact Winter tracks on eBay last summer for a good price, and finally got around to using them.

I first soaked them in vinger to darken up the metal, it was a whitish-grey. Then I gave them a wash of a mixture of bark brown and a touch of bronze metallic.
Followed by another wash of medium brown, to tone down the bronze metallic.

The tracks looked good in the house, but when I took them outside they looked a little orangy-brown to me. I think a black wash would tone it down better.

So take a look and let me know what you think. scratch

I will also need to change the colours of the tracks in the front too.
Which I just notice is missing it 2 middle teeth! rabbit

Not really missing teeth.... battle damage. It's where one allies fired round at the tank and the good 'ol spare tracks saved the day. Ads Character.

I have one track on the front of one of my tigers that is busted and I was thinkin, yea, that's looks fine too.

Regards to the colour... in the bottom pic it looks a lil too brown, but, when you look at pic 1 and 2 ... 100%

Not that asking me is getting you anywhere, I'm really not the guy to comment on weathering. (weathering challenged)

Not that I am a expert either..........lol. but I do think a black wash will just finish them off nicely.

I like that it's clearly a Left and Right handed set, that's cool. I hope you got lots of spares!

I like the colour. Maybe a tad darker I agree, but run it on some concrete and it'll look perfectly worn.

I did some quick searches on winter tracks and only found B&W images . So running them in snow and mud would rust them up pretty soon ,so my 2 cents is you got it right .

I gave the tracks a black wash and it did the trick. I'm happy with them now! Very Happy

Stince since I always somehow find inspiration in your works, I've gone ahead and modified my Panzer 3 as well!

Hopefully I can also demonstrate the difference between a flash and non-flash photo, especially on yellow tanks like mine Wink

All I did was tank an airsoft barrel (from my Tiger, I think) filed it down in a drill press to make it a bit more scale.. now I have a long-barreled Panzer!

Feel free to rivet-count and explain to me why it's wrong on a Panzer H... I really only know that the lifting brackets on the front are wrong (I have both H and J versions... Razz ) Anyway, I like it.

Looks all right to me.

The only major difference at the moment, that I can see between the two is the extra armour plate around the drivers port and hull machine gun on my Panzer.

Giving me inspiration to get back working on my Full Metal Tiger I to replicate the Bovington Tiger.

Too many projects, too little time...

Isn't that the truth!

I think I'm working on 4 tanks at once, plus I'm still kicking around the Unimog. No

I hear ya... I don't know what direction Im going just yet, but I have no plans yet for NEW tanks..

So far the biggest draw Im feeling is to upgrade my Tiger, Panzer & Sherman to some recoil system. Stand by Razz
