The clip on gear covers help keep the grease from flying all over the insides of the tank.

Hey Dean, that seems a stock Henglong gear? Care to share the 3D file for the gear cover with us?

Actually, these gearboxes are custom reinforced ones with an extra gear reduction, the clip on covers will not fit standard HL boxes as the brass posts were moved around by the maker. Matomart support staff hooked me up with them.
I like the covers though, I will be making a set for my PZ III which I will post, it has standard boxes.

So it begins, started brushing on the paint. The 3D printed texture helps to hide all the brush strokes! Hope to have it back in one piece soon.

After several hours of swearing and carefull eyeballing, the prototype for my track tensioning is done.
This should help with the issue of throwing tracks while turning tightly. Id like to make this thing at least twice as reliable as the real ones were, im setting the bar low.

Hello! I have thrown it together to begin detailing it and figuring out the stickers, The green looks much better in person than on the phone image.
