"Today, after fighting with decals that I found can't be seen anyway, I completed the interior, upper and lower hull with the exception of the machine guns, so I won't break them off while doing the exterior. I put two decals on the fire extinguishers, to find out only one is remotely visible. After 30 hours, the other one stuck to my finger and I tossed it.
The tracks were Futured (sprayed with Pledge Floor Wax), then sprayed with dark steel. They at least don't look as much like vinyl. So now it's all exterior parts and additions to go!"
