after reading through warheads.ie I got the question on a short tutorial on how to use sprues to their best advantage...
so here we go:
Take the sprue of your liking. This one I am using is from a US halftrack.
Cut down approx 1mm thin parts of the sprue
Take your base and glue with plastic glue the bottom row on it
Use really much of your plastic glue on the upper part and start laying on top the next row
Repeat step 4 as often as desired. Wait till dryed , prime and paint it.
