Petr, I wished you had said, I have moulds and fittings for these so they even function as designed, I could have saved you some time ��*♂️.

Great work though my friend, they are quite satisfying to make.

Thanks Richie, next time I will ask, but as you said - it was fun to make it.

Interesting experience - I made full turn on the river bank and almost lost the inner track. Sprocket wheel was literally filled up with the rounded stones from the inner side which pushed track out of the tooths. Also rear boogie was almost out. Luckily I stopped immediately, cleaned all I could and then moved carefully backward. I guess it was just right size of the stones for that

Same problem in the Diepe raid ! Well done for realizing what was happening and avoiding losing the track.
