The Tracks are finally up. Preparing the tracks is a time consuming task in that there are about four layers of finishes required and the paint for each layer must dry before the next is applied. The instructions for the track states that regular styrene cement can be used to connect them. Nonsense!!! Used super-glue and then had to be very careful not to over-stress the joints. When it comes to actually mounting the tracks on the tank the trick is to glue neither the drive sprocket nor the idler to the chassis. The track will go on easily with very little stress because the spockets and idlers have a lot more give. Once the track is in place it will in effect lock the sprocket and idlers down - no glue required. Tracks look really nice mounted on the wheels.
I'm not very concerned about reproducing track sag or hang here because the track returns will be covered by side skirts.
This will be my last post for about two weeks. I will be out of town for a bit. But here is a picture of the E-100 with the hull deck and turret in place
