Hi
Am in need of some help.
I've got the 1/35 & 1/72 scale versions of the IJN Type 2 Ka-Mi Amphibious tank. Now last year decided to build these. The DS Tracks had fell apart without being even taken out of the boxes. The 1/35 I've managed to source some replacement tracks, But I'm having No luck sourcing any in 1/72 scale . Are there any available.
Thanks for any help.

Hi,

I've checked on tracks & troops and with your typical Braille scale track manufacturer. It seems noone makes extra tracks. I believe this is a case for Dragon customer service

Shaun,

If your not a stickler for accuracy, maybe you could modify UM's Tracks for T26 Soviet Light Tank (#401). HobbyLinc has them in stock.



(this picture is from the excellent Henk of Holland site)



UM T-26 Tracks

They are hard plastic link and link tracks with center guide horns. (pictures from the web)





You could maybe file the outside cast connectors for each link, but that would be TEDIOUS.

Or maybe look for a similar track from a different light tank that OKB Grigorov makes in resin.
