So much for "just a quick repaint." Ordered a TK60 to go in him.

It's that damn track recoil mostly. Looks like a hit from a 500 pound bomb.

Unforseen effect. I like this tank so much, I've decided to do the next 334. I love the ambush pattern(even painted my truck in it).

Downside is, 334 was zim free. My Torro KT has zim. Going to have a think about it and start planning the flim flam of the zim zam.

Think putty will work. Just need to find the right one.

Ok. Time for the part I've been dreading. The electronics. Time to put this stuff inside.

Tank looks awesome. How did you chip the zimmerit? It came with the zimmerit already on it, right?

Just a question since I see that you removed a section of mud guards that I've always wondered. Did the zimmerit on the real tank extend below the track guards or stop at their top?

The Taigen zimmerit is easy to chip. It's a rubber(not sure) material. Just cut out the part you want damaged and peel it right off the tank.

Honestly, I dont know if the zim would have been behind the track guards, I didn't exactly check. I like the look of it.

Yea that is looking good! So did you turn the mid version into IR by swapping an IR unit in it or did you get a whole other turret?

Swapped the turret. Much less chance for me to mess something up.
