Like your Tiger, looks good. Have a question/adivce about the AFV tracks. I am currently doing the Iterali Tiger. Was wanting to do it as a warm up for my more expensive kits but was unable to use the kit tracks - not humanely possible. So I went and bought the afv tracks. They are pretty cool. I finished one run the other night and was just test fitting. They seem a little stiff in making the turn around the sprocket. I can work with them to loosen up a bit. Did you have to glue them onto the spocket to keep their shape, or what did you do? It looks like you had a little trouble with the right side, but it could just be the pic. Any tip would be helpful.

Hi Deerbill,

Hi Deerbill, what I have to say is that AFV tracks fitted nicely in the Tamiya kit. I didn't use any glue to fix them at the road wheels or the sprokes. But it should be a better way to assemble because every time I have to move the kit (even for taken pictures) I must adjust them in place. The only drawbackI found is the extractor pins marcs. I will try in an Italeri Tiger to see.

Thanks RNicoletti, the figure is from Royal Model. I have used only the torso. The head came from Warriors.

Thanks for the info. I believe i will probably have to glue them on the sprocket to get them to set in place. Probably just the diameter being slightly diff - but no problem
