1/72 Dragon Challenger II
#1
Hi guys,

I'm going small here with this tank. I haven't had the time to shoot pictures but I will as soon as possible.

The kit was easy to assemble save for the tracks which are too tight. Ended up spending almost 1 hour today on them.

But I managed to get it done up and primed. I'll begin painting tomorrow.

If you can measure, you can make !

Doh! I missed this! Saw this in the flesh and it looks really cute, these 1/72 tanks. Pity it can't fit into that small display case.
I am blunt not because I am mean but because I hope others can be blunt with me. Only through brutal honesty can we seek to improve ourselves. Pulling punches and sugar-coating does not work.

Yup... The tracks are too short. But they're made of rubber. You can try stretching them gently. But you must also reinforce the sprocket connection. I did mine with brass rod. HTH!
