The tracks. By my opinion this solution, bigger track parts in one piece combined with individual tracks is the worst option manufacturer can provide, it will be hard to get it right, and by first sight they don't give much spare so high precision and calculating is needed, individual tracks would be much better, time will tell.....

I have not been here lately but your machine is looking excellent!!!

I agree with you on the track, individual links are a lot of work but I prefer the result to the long precast assembly. Getting the sag just right on the top run of track is made much harder when they make it in one long piece.

Thank you guys !

Well,  hate to say I know it, BUT I KNOW IT ! Made the tracks to look realistic as much as possible, get to the final few tracks and this is how it ended.......... Too big to close, too small for one more track link.......

I had to take off more than half already putted on place and glued and started to " steal " a millimeter here - millimeter there and finally got it right, it's not as good as the first time, I'm not 100% satisfied with the look, but this is the best I could from the situation.......

The tracks are done. This is how Eduard suggest to glue the tracks.

Well, we all know how that ended, so on the right side I got it on my own and work out perfectly. A tip for anybody how attend to build this model, glue H6+H2+H4 for one piece and H4+H2+H5+H2+H4 for the other and you will get two equal long track links. Start on the upper side and go down on the front with separate track links, glue the long track and finish on the idler wheel. This is what you will get :

And finally started on what this tiger makes special, the temporary U.S. markings as they are on the photos
