Been messing with ships for a few years and wanted to try something different. I picked up a 1/35th Dragon 54cm Karl Great 'Loki" last weekend. The kits detail is rather simplistic. The details kits that I have are the Royal Model photo- etch, Fruill Models late version tracks and some decals from a German company that's name escapes me right now. I also have one munitionsschlepper and Karl Great crew on the way from Freetime.

My question has to deal with how to simulate the texture of steel plate/forging on this kit as the kit plastic is rather smooth? Any help would be greatly appreciated and also any tips in regard to painting tracks etc. Thanks, Jon
