Looking good, love the detail of the Takom kits but boy it makes for a big part count.
Is there a jig for the tracks in this one?

I know the tracks will be covered, but it is still nice to be able to work on live tracks where you don’t need sag. Looking good Henry.

Hi Bishop the tracks aren't to bad to work with like I said I did them in almost two halfs it would probably been easier if Takom hadn't put half the sponson on the hull because it's a little bit tight beween spocket and the sponson half but the separate track pad are a nice touch.

Thanks Henry
