Top tips:

You don't have to spend a fortune to make your model look special:

Make zimmerit from milliput 2 part epoxy putty. 1-2 packs each costing 2 pounds each will fully coat any tank. Apply a thin coat to the panel and pattern with a scalpel or screwdriver. Keep the putty and your tools wet for the best effect. It dries in 4 hours and can be drilled or sanded.

Don't waste money on expensive metal tow ropes. Replace thin plastic cables with economy guitar strings. Just a few pounds a packet. They come in 6 sizes and a very flexible, easily cut and painted. Double the ends back into collars of brass tube to make towing loops (tip from Colin Atkinson)

Mix MIG acrylic resin with MIG rust pigments and table salt. Using an old brush paint this paste onto exhaust pipes for a very heavily rusted finish.

Cut model trees (for railways) into sections and use the foliage to cover parts of your tank.

After painting the tank cement squares of black plasticard under engine grills to hide any wires/speakers and prevent dust & grit entering the tank
