TOPIC: Which Tracks ??

Which Tracks ?? 05 May 2019 10:51 #1

Now that MKs are getting hard to get and cost you your family jewels , I was wondering what you guys are using now? I have always been a big MK fan they look the best in my opinion a bit more detail tan Friuls I believe. I have been out of the Saddle last few years and want your Guys opinions on tracks now for detail , cost , and work? Hope to here many opinions. As I have many kits that need tracks. I do like Magic tracks also but MK rules.

I'm really enjoying Masterclub tracks. Metal with resin pins. I have been using brass rod though lately. I'm in the process of painting my tracks for the BUK 1 and used Aber .5mm rod for them as the pins didnt fit as well as usual. The do take a bit of practice to make but are very very nicely cast.

I still use Fruil tracks when I cant find the ones I want in Masterclub. I have also gotten a set of AK Interactive tracks which I believe are R-Model tracks. They look okay and have the wire like Fruil. Will know better how they are when I start building them.

There's other tracks than Friuls? :soldier

Who's MK, don't think I've ever used them.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Yes Model KASTEN , just like the ones Johnn has on his Pz I. I love them I believe they have the most detail out of all tracks Many of my friends use Friuls use them on theWheels for the runs and MKs as spares on the tank because they have better detail than the Friuls. Sometimes I use Magic tracks on IIIs I have a damaged newer Pz III hull with the wheels except the Drive sprocket and I build the Magic’s on this then when dry they are easy to transfer to the new build.

I still like fruils, usually MK for spares, but I am building the Pz 1 from what I have in the stash, so MK it is. I like the Bronco plastic tracks, but the line is too limited.

I. Am with James- the Master Club with K&S brass .020 rod is a great way to go

I have used a set af AFV resin and liked them very much! Also have a set of MiniArt for the T-62, just haven’t got there yet. I think I prefer the resin as opposed to the metal tracks!

Thanks Guys always glad to get input and Ideas from other modelers as they say knowledge makes things easier. Have you seen what guys are charging for Magic tracks in the trade sections and on eBay? It’s ridiculous the kit cost like $45 and many come with the Magic tracks but guys are charging $20 for Magic’s almost half the cost of the kit WOW. Tracks are a becoming big buisness in our Hobby.
