Tiger Tank Update: First Set of Tracks Fitted

WP_000340

I finally got around to doing some more of my tiger tank build at the weekend. Last week I received the final parts of the series so I thought it was time to get back into it. In this session I fitted the exhaust stacks to the back of the tank and added the left track. The track is made of 96 metal links held together with pins.

I did encounter some badly cast track links, but these were overcome with a bit of filing and brute force.
