Hi i was going through my stash and decided to keep and start a build of my Tamiya 1/35 Sturmtiger. Kit # 35177. I really hate individual track links. So Im planning on getting the AFV CLUB single one piece tracks. Which ones would be proper? They list transport tracks for Tiger I and Sturmtiger and the early and the mid/late set. Which one would be proper or doesnt it matter.
Seeing that the vehicle was produced between October 1943 – January 1945, I am
inclined to suggest mid to late tracks.
PS note that I am no expert on the matter.
Maybe the experts will chime in with a definite answer.
If it fits your budget, I would recommend Tankraft tracks:
I am finishing the review and I can tell you they are really easy to work with, as they come clean and you just need to insert one pin on each side. For the track links I tested, none needed to be drilled.
In one afternoon you can have both tracks ready, workable and with a realistic sag of your choice.
You can go on early tracks too !
The well-known Sturmtiger at Brumby/Calbe had early track.
I made the Sturmtiger scratch while there was nothing and I had to convert the Tamiya indy late tracks to early tracks…
