    WOW, incredible what can be done with paper! Some branches of cardmodelling, in the right hand, really aren't second to any other modeling media.
    Wonderful model!
    One day or the other I should decide to try a tank. It's only all that "track stuff" that frightens me!

    Track stuff are not so bad as it seems :)
    Tracks can be built in many ways, but I prefer single link tracks or a combo of single links and belt.
    I think they lok more real :)
