You did a really good job so far. The Bronco tracks are a bit scaring with all those parts. I know the result is very convincing in the end though.

Good luck for the weathering!

Chadi,

GREAT work thus far! I have 2 Leclerc kits myself, one which I have started, and one still sealed in the box (both of which are the metal wheeled versions, which I think are great, if only for the weight of the final vehicle!). I have the Bronco tracks as well. I have the Blast kit, but unfortunately, only one of those, so I'm planning to finish the first one without the Blast improvements, and then, eventually do the second one with all the details.

By the way, if you happen to know where I could get a second Blast set, I'd be happy to pay whatever the price might be.

I'd love to make a UN tank, as there are so few white tanks! I'm going to follow the rest of your build closely, as, again, I'd love to do something similar.

Very interesting Chadi, thx for showing your salt technique. It's coming along nicely.
Good luck with the Bronco tracks. I gave up on them and used the vinyl tracks ;-)

cheers
