Sometimes I just believe model companies see us modelers and they think: 'they'll buy anything!'


I can't claim finding this, a modeling chum just sent it on...

Finally --- Thank goodness!!!! Not having a track source was the only thing that was holding me back from scratch building a 1:1 scale model of a PzIV.

Thumbs up

It IS a model kit, so it will have some seams. Texturing is up to the builder but there are some reliefs in the molding surface so it portrays a new part.

I have the PIG Model Tiger II 88MM L/71 and the T-34 76.2MM HVAP shell kits. Sure beats having to pay for the REAL thing (and lighter too) so the track kits are great for the 'collector/modeler' on a budget.

About 15 years ago I bought a T54E1 track link. Talk about a boat anchor!

Wow, I will bury that in my yard, dig it up, claim a full tank chassis lay below the dirt and have all the fanfare come out filming and documenting the experience!

That sounds like something Joe Exotic would do.
