Hello all!
So I am working on a Sherman with metal tracks. Can I paint and weather them like other "metal" tracks (tiger, js-2, etc) or is there any tips for painting this style track?
ThE tank will not be muddy, but will have a lot of wear and road dust.
All of the tutorials I find are in regards to the rubber versions.
The teacks I have are t54e2 Steel design.
Thanks much for the help! Feverishly trying to get this girl done for amps nationals!

Hi Aaron,

The techniques and materials that I used to paint these tracks are outlined in the below build-blog links:

Scroll down about 3/4 the way on this page to get to the tracks:

Good luck at the AMPS Show!
