Wait they make metal tracks for it?

I have a 3d prined kit to RC one of these and some huge german gearhead motors that a gent pioneered over there and posted on his website, good stuff, but hard to find, even after you translate it all. Just havent taken on the project yet. Too many others half built ya know.

If I wanted to spend a lot of money on it I would fit the aftermarket metal tracks, but I'm not that bothered right now - I spent enough on the actuators for the dozer blade
Thanks for reposting the picks mate!

Those actuators are still not cheap!! but have come down in price a little bit. I plan on using the HL 5.3 board and tx that just came out of my M1A2 (swapped for 7.0) in my version of a Military D10 going to use the channel for barrel elevation for the blade and turret rotation for the ripper. Not sure what motors yet might shell out for some nice gearmotors the Maghomrc sells.....
Cheers Bruce

EDIT: ?? what glue did you use for the styrene to the bruder plastic?? Standard model glue/ CA/ or other??
