Ahoj Honziku! The detail work is very nicely complemented by the paint job! And just the right amount of tear and wear to make it look real! Great model, I like it a lot!

Thank you! I use two ways to make the weld lines. Either I roll a very thin thread out of the putty (I use Miliput) and then use a toothpick (I cut the tip to make it sharper and narrower) to create the weld texture. Or I cut a piece of the plastic frame left over after taking out all the model parts, I heat it above a flame (normal candle) and stretch it to get a thin line. I lay this on the place where I want to have the weld, tap some thinner over it to soften it and use some metal round-pointed tool to form the weld structure. The putty is good for corner welding while the other technique is better for rims and edges.

Great work. I'm curious, what technique do you use to recreate those beautiful weld lines? Thinned putty in a syringe?

Thank you all for the nice comments, I'm happy that you like my work!



Hi Jan,
Many years ago I built both the T-35 and IT-28 from ICM.
One of them, and I do not remember which one, had problems with how the track fitted over the sprocket wheel.
With one track link on each tooth there was a gap between the links. I "solved" this by reducing the diameter of the sprocket until the links would join to form a continous track.
There was some kind of edge/shelf inside of the teeth which I filed down and then I had to file down the teeth as well.

i wan using Fruil metal track I hope there will be no problem

Nice work bringing this early kit up to par.
Pushing the bar up, and glad after what you have to do, I am not trying one. LOL
Great job.

I agree with everyone Jan – this land-battleship is looking superb thanks to your excellent detailing. It really deserves to star in a diorama with figures, to emphasise it’s size
