JJ typing, specifically Lane mentioned to paint the treads while still on the sprue. Asked him about the sprue scar that occurs when you cut it off the sprue. He said the way the tread is put into the model it is covered up. While assembling these tanks for Mike it occurred to me how to cover up the sprue scar.
Large drybrush, any large brush
|Don't cut the treads out.|
|Spray painted black.|
|Army Painter Mat Black for rubber pads on treads.|
|Holy bananas, Batman. Lane was right. You can barely notice it. It is one of those things that if you know what you're looking for you might see it. Otherwise it looks like the rest of the model.|
