The Spartan is a rare vehicle indeed.

If its anything like my tank, those axle hub caps won't clean up too well.

I used a fine grade sand paper to sand down the rust.

The plan was then to use a chrome paint to finish them off, but I only got as far as the sanding. Smile

That's what i do, but after using very fine rubbing paper i coat the axle hub caps with WD-40 via a small paintbrush... I spray some into a clean shaving foam lid, wear eye protection goggles when spraying into the lid, it can backfire via the red nozzle if it's held too close, hold it away from the lid by about 4" Wink

A nice vehicle with a lot of playing fun.

This is the early issue (metal hubs), but I wonder, are the tracks one molded in one piece or are they riveted ?
