Never had the chance to deal with Friul tracks yet -- you have to drill them out prior or you are using larger rod ?
I've read that a lot of guys don't like the wire supplied :p

Hard to see the texture in the pic -- what did you use ?

Thanks ,

yea drill them out with a .5mm drill. i use it in a dremil like tool so it takes no time at all. the wire they supply is fine as you only need a small section of it so its strong enough, :)

the set of track i have i must have drilled out at some point so i saved a day no drilling for me today,

to add the texture i just mixed some poly with Tamiya putty dabed it on in uneven layer and let it dry then sanded it back.

Interesting ..
I thought the Friuls came ready to assemble .
No biggie -- but I'd expect it for the price ;D

What is the " poly " you added to the Tamiya putty ?

Cheers ,

Glue :D like tamiya extra thin only cheaper

fruils are "ready to assemble" they just need a bit of clean up. :)

Nice spud. I have this kit's brother assembled and base coat on it, unfortunately it has been lounging in the unfinished pile for awhile. Scratched some shurtzen for it, using the Eduard PE set. Want to bang it up, make it look well used, couple of panels painted differently from the tank camo to look like they robbed it from a knocked out vehicle.

Need to get back to it!

Thanks Scratch.

So gave it a pin wash and done the chipping, i also fixed the side i was not happy with,

A Friend gave me some Side skirts a while back So i used a few of these as they are for a Jagged.

The wheels are painted so i must do the pin wash on those next.
