Response to X7 - s.Jp.Abt 512


There are some areas that need attention in regards to welds on this model, particularly around the hull front and rear armour. I used Tamiya epoxy putty 'quick type' to replicate the welds missing.

After mixing the 2 parts together, i rolled a very fine snake of putty and applied it to the areas needing welds.. I then textured it with the back end of a #75 drill bit, put backwards in a pin vice. A fresh #11 blade was used the trim the edges. This technique was first shown in an early issue of AFV Modeller, and is dead easy, and effective.

I've still got some tidying up of these welds to do:
