As I scour my tanks for details that need to be cleaned up, I figured I'd show how I solved tracks. Many folks have methods to paint tracks, and I am not entirely settled on one yet, but here's where I'm at so far.
Adding more, try to make the entire track bottom mucked up at least a little bit. Next, the back part of the track on the outside needs to be liberally splattered, as well as the lower half of the tank's rear hull plate. (Sadly, I don't have photos of those just yet.) Next, put small dabs along the upper track section, and a few at the front, which I've been using to hide the join of the tracks there.
The final stage will be to wash the mud with a dark brown, accentuating it.
Otherwise, the tank company edges ever closer to entirely finished. I feel like I need to refine the way the balkenkreuzes are painted, and I have to scour each tank for details I've forgotten or don't quite like how they're finished. For the most part, the Panzer leaders are finished, and with a few more details they will be ready to command my forces!
I am so eager to get these things off the painting desk and on to the battlefield!
