Maybe the start of a new thread?
And this is what? A Gates belt?
If Dragon made a kit of this M113 it would have DS-tracks,
which would truly suck and cause tears and gnashing of teeth
until some 3D-artist supplies us with stiff 3D-printed tracks.
Soucy, CRT (Composite Rubber Tracks), over 30000 units delivered during the last 30 years
Also for heavier vehicles:
Rubber tracks for the M113 was the topic of one of Mike Sparks’ articles back in 2009 (he was the only guy who, amongst other things, persisted to call the M113 “Gavin” )
This is going to cause problems
Here’s the thing, nowadays, if a kit comes with rubber band tracks, most of us feel like like we’ve been short changed, hate them and immediately reach for the Friul Catalogue.
So if rubber tracks become the normative in real life, well…
rubber band tracks coming back in fashion again, I’m glad i still use them, i might even become fashionable. lol
Now come on, let us at least be realistic…
“Rubber tracks” for the M113 are available from Slingshot Models
the rubber track is available and are very nice:
slingshot is based in Greece and has a small but very nice selection of products.
With that seam line and split idler wheel, they are not winning any awards.
Yep. That model definitely needs photo documentation to back it up
That picture is the best advert I can think of not to buy the product.
Indeed. Everyone knows that everything we purchase, especially resin products, should fall out of the packaging in perfect condition, with no effort on the part on the modeler whatsoever.
Shake’n Bake modelling
I have seen this in use with the brits of the Danes. They are lighter and looked easier to put on is a hurry. I think the US military tested them as well I just don’t remember the end result.
this time of the year you see them used daily in farm fields, so why not?
