So I'm just starting a tau army after having been an ork player for 8 months or so. With my orks most of their vehicles/mechanized units are made from big clunky plates, so I found if the line showing between where two peices connected, it didn't matter because it looked ORKY to have some minor gaps or cracks between large overlapping metal sheets. With tau however I was noticing all the vehicles have smooth seemless edges on the GW website. I am having difficulty emmulating this. I tried filing the edges down a bit, but you could still see the joining line. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? Please help.
You have to apply liberal amounts of glue, be extraordinarily careful and spend a frustratingly large amount of time on it, I've found. No easy way out.
putty the seams and sand them...it's horribly time consuming, but it's the only way. Even nastier is when two pieces, especially the engines on a skimmer, don't match up...then it takes major surgery to make things smooth.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about. Look at the top of the engine housing...see how ugly the seam is where the two halves are mismatched? I didn't fix that...and it shows.
