fingolfen Posted November 25, 2015 Report Share Posted November 25, 2015 I'm finally making progress in generating some accurate tracks for the Panzer IV/70 (A) in its most typical configuration with four steel-rimmed roadwheels. Starting with the Plastic Panzer IV Ausf H tracks from Battlefront, I've scratch-built a roadwheel that I've been able to cast multiple copies of: I cast it as a tube so it would act as its own sprue in the resin and I could just cut it to a custom thickness to match where I've carefully removed the roadwheels from the plastic tracks. I plan to use the fenders from the Battlefront Panzer IV Ausf J kit and then turn around and use the spare tracks from the Panzer IV/70 (A) for the Panzer IV Ausf J (as the idler on the Ausf J plastics is dead wrong).
