Thanks GMK

Just following the conversion instructions with bump stops😀 I did say 67/68 in the thread title but I have mixed and matched a bit with various mods I have seen photos of.

Thanks everybody for the likes👍

I think that’s about it for the model itself now on to some figures to go with it 😀

That does look good. I can almost hear The Stones singing "Paint it Black".

Oh dear🤔

After a couple of hours trying to sort these Masterclub tracks I have admitted defeat😟they are SO fragile.

6E3553A7-3258-46F9-87A3-513CA308A6B8

 

I really can’t say these are any good at all after having no trouble with my 432 tracks these are a massive disappointment!

Update DO NOT buy these tracks for the Academy kit they don’t fit the drive sprockets😡

cheers

Ivan,

 

Ive used Masterclub tracks on 3 x 432's found them excellent. But recently build a Scimitar and Scorpion and used their tracks. The pins were so small, skinny & fiddly and lost lots of them around the room. Also they didn't stay in the track link so in the end a little superglue on top of each sorted it out. I will still use Masterclub as I think they look brilliant when eventually fitted, especially if they have individual rubber pads which make the pop brilliantly.

Hi David,
After getting my head around them they did go together quite well👍
The issue with them on a 113 build is they are actually made for the AFV kit! To get them to fit you have to widen the drive sprockets and do a bit of filling on the teeth. Still all’s well that ends well 😀

I thought the name "Tears" was on a fire support M113 with the Saladin turret.

 

There was 1 unit's 3 fire support vehicles were named "Blood" "Sweat" & "Tears"

No idea Niall!  Just took what was on offer with the kit decals,actually the kit ones did specify 31A but that had a turret so I cut it down to 31 for the troop cmd’s vehicle and not a section wagon.😀
