Jacob,

That's a bummer that the gun tube was ruined. I still remember my first attempt at heating up plastic using a candle to bend a fender... the model ended up with a hole thru the fender

Don't get discourage, there is plenty of opportunity for practicing painting and weathering.

Hi Jacob,

Paint looks nice and smooth. What are your plans for weathering?

next time try something bigger like king tiger, abrams, leopard.. or 1/35,
1/72 looks like something to start with because of price but it's really NOT.

i just returned to 1/72 wings after almost 10 years of only 1/48 and 1/32

To deal with Vallejo is also a matter of the airbrush and nozzle size which you are using. HS Evolution family with 0,2 nozzle is often a clogging nightmare where Iwata or Gabbert or bigger nozzles are more userfriendly. For beginners I would recommend Tamiya or Gunze colours.

Hi Jacob
about work with Revell tracks
Put the track links for gear wheel on flat ground, glue them together with slow setting glue and then wrap them around the wheel. stick the wheel and continue with lower tracks and slow glue to the idler. then the same with single links around idler. with varying the track sag you can close the track run without problems. Cut all tracklinks before starting glueing and Try always to finish a track run complete in one run. you have app.15min for adjusting the glue. Regards from Vienna
Robert
