M1 Abrams Reference

I don’t know 100% if they will fit the Dragon sprockets. :frowning:

The Trumpeter T156 tracks are one piece indi-link tracks. You only have to add the end connectors and center guide. They are not hard to work with at all and only go for about $25. They also fit the Dragon sprockets just fine.

Tamiya’s on-piece vinyl tracks suck. They have the center guide teeth in the middle of each track block, not between them where they should be.

Oh OK, thank you, did not know the Tamiya were so inaccurate.

A better option for an early M1A1 in ODS is the Rye Field ODS M1A1 kit. It comes with all the parts and decals for an early M1A1 in ODS w/T156 tracks. It is also very detailed and up to date.

I’m cyurrently working on a set of those Trumpeter teacks for my M1IP build; it’s time consuming to say the least.

I ended up ordering the Ryefield kit…found a good deal on one on Amazon…after tracks and decals there was 30.00 already, I got the kit for $50.00…everywhere else was $70.00 and up with shipping.

The first railhead operation supporting the movement of 14 M1 Abrams main battle tanks and one M88 Armored Recovery Vehicle from the Coleman Army Prepositioned Stocks-2 worksite in Mannheim, Germany :de: departed Coleman June 24 bound for the new APS-2 worksite in Powidz, Poland :poland:.

This first push of an entire modernized Armored Brigade Combat Team’s worth of APS-2 to Powidz — the newest and most modern APS worksite in the world — provides proof of principle and validates railhead operations at the 405th Army Field Support Brigade’s APS-2 worksite in Poland.

They see the holy grail. Planning and logistics will work as designed in perfect harmony. What could possibly go wrong? Don’t be a nay sayer, be a team player…

LinkedIn? No doubt an intelligence “leak” designed to intimidate our Ruscist friends.
