Hey, spent the evening making a grot mega-tank from scratch and thought it would be fun to share, it ended up quite a bit different to what i was expecting as I didn't plan this out at all and ended up a pseudo-dragstar but was fun to make. dimensions are correct though from what I can find, hope you like it

I made this using 99% wooden plant markers, and the rest are a metal guitar slide I don't use anymore, two jack Daniels bottle caps, a tiny amount of polymer clay for the back wheels and some fantasy ork bits i was kindly donated by a friend.

Huh, I never thought of using wood before. I wonder what the texture will be like once painted? I look forward to the final result.

Ask yourself: have you rated a gallery image today?

Yeah that occurred to me after I made it, hopefully if i give it two super thin coats it might not absorb too much of the paint, will update when i get my hands on some spray paint

Car spray primer in a can will help seal the model. That way it will not drink up your paint too quickly. I have used it on my mdf terrain and it works great.
