Does anyone happen to know if the 1 piece tracks from the Tamiya T72M1 will fit the Trumpeter T72M4CZ?
Why? The Tamiya is almost 30 years behind modern moulding.
quicker build on the tracks and i dont like dealing with one piece tracks
I have compared the sprocket wheels from the two kits, Tamiya and Trumpeter.
The important measures are identical, the sprocket teeth line up perfectly between the two kits.
The width of the wheels differs slightly, the Trumpeter wheel is slightly narrower, within one tenth of a millimetre so in the worst case a very thin shim might be needed to widen the Trumpeter wheel.
The Tamiya track fits the Trumpeter wheel, some parts of the rubber band in my kit has a small amount of mold flash which makes the fit tight, not too tight though. See above about that shim …
The width of the Tamiya sprocket could be reduced by 0.1 mm but this is a matter of taste/preferences. The slight sideways looseness isn’t obvious so it can be ignored.
