My apologies for the lack pf progress until now. I did not use the AFV Club links. I really wanted to throw them !@#$%^& things in the garbage. :icon_twisted:  I used a set of Hobby Boss M26A1 tracks from a failed model. However,the M46 track run is longer. I used five links more on each side. Those were the only good to come out of that AFV set.

I need to paint the road wheel hubs,and the support rollers the same color as the rest of the tank. I originally used Testors IDF sand. But it came out brown. I used MIG Ammo IDF sand.

Every time you eat celery,an angel vomits in a gas station bathroom. Tanks rule. I know the load is late,but the voices tell me to pull over and clean the guns.

Looks really well done, and to throw my near-valueless (checks exchange rate, yep down in all markets) opinion out there: I think the hubs and return rollers look fine in their current color - it breaks up the IDF sand nicely.

Looking good and a great choice for the IDF treatment.  :)

Subtle weathering is the best weathering, and you've got it down perfectly.  I can almost smell the engine exhaust and dust through my screen.

Thanks LemonJello.

I am hoping I can post finished pics tomorrow. I just need to add some small finishing touches to it.
