make it a hover tank!  :bd:
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I built one of those.  My first tank build too.  Nice.

Taking shape. I'm almost ready for painting



I'll probably do a black base like Andy at Andy's Hobby HQ does and then do the wheels individually, the chassis, paint the tools with a brush, glue on the tools, put the wheels on, then the side skirts and boom...some klear and wash.

I think I'll lightly "tack" the skirts on without the wheels on to get the flow of the camo, then take them off to get the wheels on.

This is a beautiful model. 1996 this mould came out!  :notworthy:

So I used a black base method to give some depth to the paint (a technique I found out from Andy's Hobby Headquarters on Youtube)





And some Dark Green stripes
