So I'm looking at the wheels in the frame use for exploding the mines and I thought they looked really familiar.  Then it came to me, a tool I used to 'dress' grinding stones when they got too grooved or gouged (I'm a steel fabricator by trade), the wheels are exactly like that ----

The box art shows one of the failings of this design. The narrow width means that as soon as the right "training wheel" falls into that water filled ditch, it's going to keel over on that side, crush the wheel supports on that side or at least twist in that direction. It looks like turns are made by locking the training wheel on the turn side (rather than slitting the main tread and locking one tread of the other to turn), so damaging a wheel would be bad news.

@Frank - perfect fodder for alternate history - post-war motorcycle enthusiasts.  Imagine this thing with a more open body, the armor and weapons stripped away and some Brando wanna-be wearing his leather cap, jacket, and riding chaps with a set of aviator style sunglasses :)

Jeff - I'll look at my kit, but I think it would be possible to just build the exterior as a "tank" and use the interior assemblies (or most of them) as a circular motorcycle. The Modelling News build article would suggest this is possible.

So not so much this:



but this:



It would still need an exterior wheel or track.
