    I found that the individual track links are a pain. When I did mine, I was going to make them more intricate, almost like yours, but it took too long and I made them more modern style with thick pads instead. Great wok on on your technique. I posted my build over at Dakkadakka, and found a good reception on my build there. Keep up the great work and I am waiting to see more updates.

    Yes, they are! :D But I hope I'll do that...once. :D They are preety much the same as yours, and those joints takes forever to do, but it's the only way to make them believeable..
    Mine are not accurate too, there should be small pads in the center and some rivets, but I can live with that.
    Well, those winged skuls are tricky on Baneblades, but your tank is the best warhammer machine made of paper even with the "abrams" style tracks! I hope we'll see another masterpiece here soon. :wave:

    I've been busy to make the base for the beast, well, it wasn't the best idea... :cry:
    Basic parts of the bridge construction is taken from Alin's ultimate Bailey Bridge, others are pure fiction. Everything is made of thin cardboard. Pillar is created in Sketch-up, printed, heavy laminated and covered with acrylic wood filler to achieve concrete texture, I hope it will be ok to paint it with synths. Still a lot of work to do.
    I'll try to transform that little guy to some sort of imperial guard soldier, since I don't have any, but I'm not sure about the size, we'll see.. :mrgreen:

    That bridge is just plain awesome. The one support on the Bridge gives the tank a sense of movement. Really incredible! :)

    Thank you all, I'm really glad you like it! :thumb:
    Here is the first layer of the rust, mixed brown, red and black oil color, applied in small touches, then washed with soft brush soaked with thinner.
    I'm going with just one thing in my mind now: DFIU! (Don't F..... It Up!) tooth1
