  1. Ryefield Models have released this kit. I have it on order now. Martin
  2. I completed a Chally 2 earlier this year with the CIP panels of PE. I modified a small pair of pliers to get the bends correct, had no problems with getting the correct bends. Martin
  3. I am just going to make up the links to 91 and see what happens,if they are too long I can take the pins out and shorten them or add links as necessary. It’s not so much cleaning of the links it’s just getting a good fit to enable the pins to be fitted freely. Might end up using wire yet,as the resin pins are really not strong enough. Martin
  4. Thanks, found another post that says there are 91 links with the kit,suppose i could have counted the link and length in the kit. I’ve been using the resin pins,they don’t seem all that strong,as I have snapped a few. I am going to carry on using the resin pins and see what happens. I am finding that there is more cleaning to do on the links than I had first though, to make them a good fit for the pins. Used Fruil tracks in the past,with no problems. Martin
  5. How many links are there per track? Thanks. I’ve started making up the tracks,using the resin pins,just have to make sure the links are clean,and without any flash. I’ve tried the section that I have made up on the sprockets,and there are no problems Martin
  6. Not sure about a recent release. I have not started making the tracks up as yet. Martin
  7. The worn pads were i think a couple of pounds dearer. They look ok. Martin
  8. Hi, I am about to start making up the Masterclub tracks for my 432. I got the ones with the worn pads. Is it best to glue the pads on as you make the tracks up? Thanks. Martin
  9. I will obviously test the tracks on the sprocket first. It was on a review that I read about having to trim a little off the sprocket teeth. Should get the tracks in the post tomorrow. Martin
  10. Hi, Thanks. I did find somewhere else regarding the sprocket teeth having to be trimmed a little for the masterclub tracks. Cannot see that being a problem though. Martin
  11. Hi, I am about to start building the Takom FV432. I have ordered the masterclub tracks for the model rather than use the link and length type, which I don’t particularly like. I have used Fruil tracks in the past on models,but first time using masterclub. Martin
  12. Hi, Received the accurate armour interior kit for the Academy Warrior. I don’t think that it is going to be so heavy that you need to strengthen the suspension arms. The resin parts are quite light. Martin
  13. I have finally ordered the accurate armour interior kit for the Warrior. martin
  14. Hi, Thanks, I don’t have the interior kit as yet,was just wondering about the details of it. I would have thought that when the tracks were in place ,they would sufficiently support the suspension arms. Martin
  15. Hi, How exactly would I pin the suspension arms, to make them stronger? Thanks Martin
