Hello Phil

The White wash will be as if it is late spring. So the wash will be very feint and the tank will be very battle scared worn and dirty. Can't wait to start the washes. Hopefully very soon. Just waiting on Steve.

Hello Chaps

Finally finished My T34/85. All been white washed and dirtied up. The track are tight due to the fact that when they are slack the sprocket just skips over the tracks. Steve Winstones storeage box is one of his masterpeices well pleased. I had it running and boy does it shift. Here are some photos.

Hi Lee,
Your T34-85 looks great with your wash and dirtying up.
Those panels are very good.
I like your commander he looks very nice and its great to see out on the grass.
Regards
Phil

Great looking T34 Lee - top notch paint job as always.

> when they are slack the sprocket just skips over the tracks

Is that something which will improve with age or something that needs to be looked at :?:

One of the distinctive features of the T34 is the tracks flapping about as it manoeuvres :shock:

Hello Chaps

Thanks for your Kind comments.

Adrian

The tracks are too slack for my liking. I know that they was very loose in real life but in this scale it dont work for me. There is no weight to the links and that is where the problem is. So i have taken 2 links out. Male female.
Its not like a Tiger or Panther where you can just take 1 link out so on the T34 there is 60mm to make up. Thats where the tightness comes in.
