    Tread question for tracked project

    So I have finally started painting this monstrosity http://www.librarium-online.com/forums/imperial-guard/102023-my-huge-scratch-built-count-russ.html

    But now I'm suddenly unhappy with one part in particular, the treads. Therefore, I’m going to have to rip them off and put some proper ones on there.

    So i really want to use some gw ones but i have no idea what size they are, or if they will fit the monster. Heres where you come in (cue the trumpets). I have exactly 25mm to work with; I could do some filing or bulking out to make the treads fit better but only by a couple of mm. I could even two sets of treads for each track if they were half the size of the space.


    So I issue a challenge, find the best solution to get this project on the road again remembering the key criteria:
    1. The parts must be gw, and can preferably be ordered through the Warstore or somewhere else on the net..
    2. They tracks need to be 25mm (or 12.5mm) wide, give or take 1mm
    3. And will look really spanking on my beast.
    REP TO THE PERSON WITH THE BEST SOLUTION!

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott

    Now that...was cool...

    Baneblade tracks.

    qsd, thanks very much for the reply. I take it you know that both these options will fit the space reqired? or are you just approximating?

    You are the only poster so far so rep to you.

    Please post if you have anything else, at the moment both these options are quite expensive but i am leaning toward the warstore option...

    You're welcome
    I know that the plastic baneblade tracks are about 25.5mm, or very close to that at least. It was in the middle of 25 and 26, but my ruler's smallest measurement is mm.
    The FW tracks are an approximation from superheavy tank pics on their site.
