    When building tanks i have picked up a usefull tip for joining the tracks.

    the rubber frames that the tracks come on can be used to make black glue. Simply cut them up and leave them in a little tub of paint thinner. Stir well and Voi la ! Black glue good for tracks.

    Also i like to paint the base coats before the model is assembled and paint and touch up as i go, That way i find i can apply the most detail and accruacy with out fouling any other bits of the tank. Also a good reason to cover any excess glue alien

    Pretty cool trick , well I have quite diffetrent approach to rubber tracks. When buying a model I usually buy custom track for that particular model and scrap the rubber Laughing , i found rubber tracks 'un-natural" looking, they tend to twist and bend, looking really dumb, as far as applying decals goes, I try to paint them myself, it gives your model heck of a more realistic and better look then the one the model came with , even thou my painted on decals are not 100% hmmm "as they should be",i still preffer do-it-yourself decals i'd post some pics but dont know how Rolling Eyes
