Tank Tracks

Can anyone suggest a simple but effective way to simulate tank tracks in soft sand?

I want to pose a model with tracks in the sand behind it and a slightly 'submerged' look where it has stopped.

Thanks in anticipation.

Regards Dave

Easy method...

Simply press the kit tracks into your groundwork while it is still soft. Let the groundwork set up a while and then press them in. It will leave the inpression of the track when it dries.

Sandwich wrap.

Hi,

As Gino said but if using Celluclay, Sculptamold etc, it's a good idea to put a piece of clear sandwich wrap in between tracks and (wet) groundwork (in most cases) prior to pressing the 'image' in.

Thanks,
