I was mounting an item over my workbench once and the screw driver slid out of my hands and dropped right onto the model I was working on at the time (T-34) and it was like a bomb hit it. Pieces went everywhere (and there really isn't a whole lot of pieces on a T-34). It wasn't really a long drop either, maybe 10 inches. But it was 10 to much. I did repair everything.

As you can see from the pictures, the front and rear wheels ride high.



I put some lead weight in the transmission housing and the engine room. Fixes the problem in back, not in front. Can't get enough weight up front. I'd rather not have to glue it in place.

The 50 cal machine gun barrel looks kinda droopy.

It's only been two years, never say "die". I have several old projects sitting around too. I'll get to them eventually.

It was one of the victims in the great Gundam massacre of 2011. See the Lee thread for details. Took me a couple years to get up the heart to start working on the again.

as for wheels being high... glue down moving suspension and glue tracks to first and last wheel, works for me every time mostly on T55's horrible tracks
