I'm not a tank modeller - but ever since I photographed it at Kubinka, I have been fascinated by this unusual tank... So when Panda Models kitted it I added it to my stash - and have just got round to making it....

Hi Folks, I'm modeling the beast of metal track builds, the Object 279, 4 tracks each with about 90 links per track. I did not like the plastic links in the kit i bought (Panda) so I bought a set of metal links by MasterClub. Although the tracks are okay, assembly is a real pain, each link requires drilling and filing to clean up the pin area. 20 links take me over an hour to get assembled and I have nearly 400 to do. Friulmodel and Spade-Ace do not make Object 279 links, but I found a company called San Xin that does. Has anybody ever heard of them and can you comment on whether or not they are worth it? I'm scared to plunk down another $60 US for a second set of tracks. At this point I might just use the plastic links rather than continue with the Masterclub ones. Again, thanks in advance for your replies.
