Great job on your LVT-4 Jacob I like the detail in the interior and the painting and weathering. I been wanting to get this kit myself someday. Will this be in a diorama?

My Dad went ashore on Saipan, likely in one of those. Nice build.

I tried building the Italeri. The ******* lousy rubber band tracks did me in. I should get the Friuls and finish that sucker.

And yes, I hate the tracks THAT MUCH!

Any tips on how to put those Friul tracks together, I just got the AFV early LVT and would like to use the tacks I originally got for an Italery LVT. Thank you in advance. Juan.

Bill: I feel your pain, but I actually did these suckers, and I really can't say I enjoyed it at all. But they do look sweet once done! What about the workables from AFV Club? They should fit right onto their own product, are you reading this Juan, and everything must be easier than the Friuls. Personally I want to do the version with the howizerturret, but it's not going to be from Italiery, so AFV or Bronco, get cracking.

What about the workables from AFV Club?[:::]


Jacob, I can't find them on Luckymodel or Greatmodels.com, Does someone have a product number I can search?

Bill, I might have been out a bit early on this one. I can't find them in any of "my" webstores either, so they might not be out yet. abut they are not listed as future items on Perth, so I guess it won't be long before they hit the stores. Sorry!

PS: Do you have any MagicTracks for Panthers, that you've like to part of?
