track time
now the fun comes …
after thirty years of overall assembly and the assembly of the finished model tracks I decided to prepare the “handling” part first … as a beginner …
it’s time to mount the AFV tracks … which notoriously get lost or the junction links fall off … I tried to change method: this time I try to fix them with Vinavil

operation simple and easy
ok i can start to paint it!

What is vinavil and how did you use it?
In their own words: “A leader in polymers for industry”

Considering the context I would guess it is something like this:

A whole kilogram …jeeez …

I simple put a little drop of glue on the pin, it is enought to prevent falling off and the track remain flexible
