Starting this one, first foray in to workable suspension/tracks...



most likely plan is for a what if pixel scheme (unsure of colours as yet)

Hi;

You are really going to like your kit, As for myself I liked it so much, I built Two. If you are going to depict your kit in A Dio or Display it on uneven ground then the suspension will be useful; Otherwise its not worth the time making it work.

CHEERS; MIKE.

cheers Mike, no dio so fixed suspension is OK. Must say so far so good (might not build another but am assuming the T-90 is a similar configuration of kit...

progress. One side of tracks done (workable tracks went together nicely with only a few casualties) and the running gear done. On to the upper hull now.

both tracks completed - and 81 links/side seems about right. Have moved on to the upper hull and attached it to the lower... nice fit. Still not sure on the paint job this will get but so far so good
