    Paint/Decal Problem

    A friend of mine asked if I had any idea what caused this to happen. He used Tamiya Fine White Primer, Krylon Semigloss White spray can followed by Rustoleum Lacquer. He said there was at least 48 hours between coats. Any one have an idea of what caused this?

    Panzer Fire Extinguisher Color

    This may seem like a dumb question but what color are the fire extinguishers on some of the German panzers? I have seen them the color of the panzer, black, white and green. Does it even matter? Any help would be thankful.

    Tamiya 1/35 Panther Ausf.A

    Here's the old Tamiya Panther Ausf.A. I started it a few months back. I closed off the open underside, added wire handles, drilled out the exhaust, and replaced the tow cobles with picture frame wire. I kept the end of the cables and drilled them out to take the wire.

    SU-85 & SU-122 Tracks

    For the more experienced armor guys, are the tracks for a T-34 the same as those for the SU-85 and SU-122? Both AFV and Friulmodel have T-34 tracks. My thinking is that since all three are the same chassis, I'm not a Russian armor expert, they should have the same tracks? Any help would be great.
