So, I recently came into possession of 3 leman russes, unpainted, and (poorly) assembled. Since it looks like plain old superglue was used to hold them together I was thinking of breaking them down, trimming away some flashing and sprue joints the previous owner missed, painting them, and finally reassembling them.
However, I realized that the treads (perhaps the worst-assembled section of all) might not come off intact when I pry them off, not to mention that it seems several links are missing. So I checked around for hints on making my own tank treads to no avail.
So I pose the question directly: Does anyone out there have any good ideas for substitute tank treads, especially ones made from scratch? It would be awesome to find something that comes in a long, flexible band that I could just wrap around, but anything I can find a bagfull of for cheap would also fit the bill nicely.
Where are you from? I've probably got some spare if you're in the U.K.
I think they sell chains of tank treads for normal WW1-2 tanks in hobby shops, but I may be wrong. I'll look around and tell you if I find anything.
Necron Army Building Maxima: Beware of Phase Out
You could try asking over in the IG forum about spares, I'm sure someone will have some spare links, the old style russes and chimera chassis vehicles come with a tonne of spare links.
Make a Green Stuff Negative mold and press the few links you need to complete the track?
Unfortunately the old chimera's are gone to be replaced with new, as they had loads of spares. They sell track guards on the GW website under IG bits tank accessory sprue, that might help replace a few / give you bits to patch/repair bits.
