Hi, it's probably been asked before but I have been able to find it on the Interwebs:
What do you need to do in order to attach the mine clearing gear with magnets to the front of the T-72?

Thanks for your help. :)

Magnets and glue and paint to cover everything that is still visible when the glue tries.

I am not sure what else you are looking for?

If the magnets are strong enough and you have not built the T-72s, try to see if you can glue the magnets (assuming they are strong/powerful enough) for the hull on the inside of the model.

Thank you Sir.
That was exactly the file I was looking for. I could not remember who had done it. It was such an elegant method.
Cheers

Sorry just saw this. Even more elegant: magnets on the inside of the hull, with 3mmx1mm magnets glued to each plow. No card showing between the plows.

I just cut a thin strip of .010 hobby sheet metal and glued it to the front bottom hull of my tank before I painted it, you can't see it when the tank is all painted. Once it was all done I glued small magnets to the ends of the mine plow bits painted them and I was done. Took about 5 minutes total.
