    A KV1 tank I assembled, it was designed by Vladimir from the forum. It is 4,5cm long and I made it in 5-10 hours with all the details.

    I wonder if I should make the tracks like the real ones not just plain texture...

    Great looking model! I see you picked the "Kill Fascist Foul" markings. This really has a great look for a model this scale and you've done a wonderful job on it. Congratulations.

    Agreed, looks great, doesn't look like it's a tiny model!

    Nicely done! Of course, you really should make the tracks like the real ones. :p

    Thank you everyone!

    The problem with the tracks is that I glued them with plastic glue and I don't know how to take them off without destroying the hull.

    You have two options:
    1. make a second tank with the realistic track.
    2. be satisfied with the first tank and start a new project.

    I use my models for wargames so I would choose option #2 because my models are seen from a distance so the track would make little difference in appearance.

    Maybe I will leave it this way...wargames? I was thinking of making models for such games, but I don't know the rules from them or how do they work.

    I was just kidding about the tracks. Unless you're a masochist leave well enough alone.
