The big cat is finished and I'm happy to report that I have at last found a superglue that will glue rubber!!!! Yippeeeee!!!!

This is a very early Tamiya kit that was originally motorised, so it's basic with low detail but still builds up quite well.

Looks very nice Al, I never knew some of the tank kits were motorised.

What kind of superglue did you find?

well, that turned out nice

trick to 'glass' bits and CA fogging is a good coat or Kleer, works a treat

and a lot of the early Tamiya tanks were motorised

Looks good Al. Really like your cammo. Next time I'm in Lowe's I'll look for that Loctite. My next dark side project has vinyl tracks.
