Nazi German Armor
I found that putting a Roco 234 armored car in a Dixie cup it would hold just the right position to allow me to glue on the bumper supports. I had to scrape the paint off the corners of the front of the upper part of the lower hull. I glued a plastic bead on each of the two corners. Most beads are glass and don't work very well. I found about a million plastic beads from two bucks at a bead shop. Well, maybe a thousand or so.
Plastruct 1.5mm plastic coated wire, trimmed to one inch lengths and then bent each end with pliers.
They look pretty good once they are glued on.
I initially glue them with vast amounts of Plastuct glue and later added 5 minute epoxy to strengthen them.
The two new 7.5 cm anti-tanks guns L/48 mounted in the 234 chassis.
Various bits on the workbench as I continue with my upgrade of the Roco 234 series of armored cars.
