Just what color should tank treads be painted? I've seen models with everything from solid rust to black to body color. I've read enough around here to know that they really shouldn't be rusty, except maybe the end connecters in certain situations. But I'm unsure of whether they're left natural metal, painted black, painted green or what?

Thanks!!

This was discussed way back in Armorama's infancy...Painting Vinyl Tracks some good discussion went back and forth.

Got it, thanks Rob - guess I just didn't dig deep enough.
