What I did with a couple of Marders was make plastic card bits and 
fill in the track wells that way. I created a side piece that sloped 
down at an angle and touched the central part of the Roco model 
(behind the track wells). I then cut two triangular pieces, one front 
and one back, to fill in the front and back of the well. It worked 
okay, but it's fairly time consuming so I've only done three vehicles 
so far. I really need to do more, but haven't had the chance.
