Tracks are going to be 'interesting' they are 5mm wide which is fine but they have prominent guide teeth that need to be added.. 2 per track link... bu hand.... 
I can't think of any other way of doing them without casting (and I'm not going that far!)

Maybe use your laser cutter to make guide teeth in one continuous strip (like a very small saw blade)?

Undercarriage remade and started on the tracks.



They are ridiculously tiny


Compared to the Centurion tracks

I might not either Grin

Obviously I also forgot to add weight to the hull so I'll need to cut it open and fit some ballast at some point.

Oh and top tip - don't put your newly tracked tank down in a blob of PVA overnight - It tends to stick to the build board!

No major harm done... Shocked

Track guides, is that on the outside of the track or the runners in the middle(or both!)

Those foam wings will never hold the weight of a full tank! Wink Great work Rich! Love

The upper pic the two spikes go either side of the road wheels.  I'm going t attempt to add them...  might be a step too far though.
