ACE models (Ukraine).
« on: January 07, 2013, 06:54:51 AM »
I couldn't find a thread for these guys so here is one for something new I have just found. Fort anyone who has built any of their 1/72nd scale tracked vehicles, and like me been on the verge of a coronary putting the tracks on. Here is a rubbery light at the end of that tunnel of badly fitting plastic.http://modelsua.com/NONA-BTR-D-type-rubber-tracks-1-72-ACE-ACEr005.html  There are a couple of different versions available, and at that price, worth having a few different sets of in the spares box for future kit bashes etc

that's half the solution .... wish someone would do that for 1/35th stuff.

The real solution is -- now that slide-moulding has made it possible -- is to mould two runs of injected plastic - upper & lower with all the proper sag on the top runs.

I remember many years ago when ESCI introduced the first serious hard plastic tracks on their 1/72 AFV kits after years of everybody moaning about soft plastic rubbery tracks on first Airfix, the Matchbox and the various Japanese manufacturers.  I see the wheel has turned.  ;D

Yay for more aftermarket rubber band tracks!  :icon_beer: More aftermarket rubber band tracks mean more individual link/link-and-length tracks made of proper plastic in the kits themselves.  :) Meaning I won't have to invest in aftermarket indy link tracks and therefore save a few bob.   :P

Whilst not my scale, I do love the look of this 1/72 BTR-ZD Airborne AD Vehicle ‘Skrezhet:

Gotta love Russki ingenuity - tying the gun on with cables is just so "backyard mechanic"! ;D

Now we just need one in 1/35th. ;)

It's now available:

Eagle eyed viewers will note on the PE sheet there appears to be a Bombardier logo for Canadian-built trucks. A few more mods would be required to make a Canadian spec, but nothing too involved.

Side box art indicates an Ambulance version and chatting with ICM, they have asked for TOW equipped.

I still cannot believe the Canadian Army deployed to Afghanistan in these (although we left driving Leopard 2A6)
