Unfortunately the tracks dont fit the Tamiya sprocket. Are there 1/35 scale sprockets that will work with these tracks (probably same tooth distance as friul) and can be fit to a built model?

I thought I was going to be able to use the Tamiya polycapped sprockets as I could feed the tracks on after painting.

Any thoughts?

Which Semovente? The old 75/18 of Tamiya? It can be that the tracks are made for the Italeri/Zvezda sprockets.

I bought a set for my Italeri one and they fit that, so I suspect that Massimo may be correct.

Yes the old tamiya semovente. Zvezda makes a semovente? I wish I could find a way to get just a set of sprockets I could make work on this model.
