Guess you're dry fitting the assembly to get your turns correct. :good
I told you photobucket sucks...

But to to add just one more twist...I'm three links short on each side. I broke about eight during this process. :angry:

Now onto more exciting stuff!

I think I would have rather worked tracks than what I had to deal with today. No really...:soldier

I'd contact Meng and tell them your problems plus ask them for replacement links. You could work on other parts of the model whilst waiting for a reply and/or the replacement tracks. Unless you don't mind a gap in the track runs that gets hidden by the skirts.

Cheers

Pretty good progress this last week.... :dance

Scratch built the 200l external fuel barrel mount. One come in PE with the update set I'm use but I never learned how to work with that stuff very well. :blink: So it was just easier for me to make it from styrene. After that I finished up the lower hull and the anti-slip on the upper hull.
