Part 1 : Picking Up The Pieces
I build my tracks by making small sub sections of 5 to
10 track links, which I then join together. I build these sections by first
laying out the pieces I am going to use (figure 1.1).
I put a dab of glue in each of the grooves in the track (the red lines show
where I apply the glue), and then add another track link into the one I just
applied glue to. I find that instead of sliding the new link in, pushing it
down from the top works better. I then repeat this until I have a section of
5 links (figures 1.2, 1.3, 1.4).
Now to make the track totally flat I put my file (any flat stick or ruler
would do) across all the links and press down on it (figure 1.5).
Part 2 : Track over Drive Wheel
Now I let the section sit for about1 min to let the
glue dry a little. Once I’m happy it’s dry a bit and will not fall apart I
place it on the tank's drive sprocket (figure 2.1).
Then I bend it around the sprocket and let it dry for about 1 hour (figure
