This thread will cover one of my builds for the Tank Transporter Campaign, I will do a thread for each one to make them easier to follow.

I got a start on my Maz, mostly cleaning parts and filling ejector marks(most of which will not be seen ) I am also going to be adding weld beads to a lot of the joints.

I found this tip the other day about using backer rod (a foam rod for filling cracks before caulking) to fill vinyl tires and keep them against the bead, works good.

Found that here:

Cheers Rob.

Hi Rob,

a very interesting project you have decide to manage. The tip with the foam stick is excellent.

IŽll have an eye on this topic, because I do also have a MAZ with semitrailer and a Chinese 50ton tank trasnporter, which were bought for my conversion project of creating a semi trailer ChMZAP-9990.
