Howdy,
fellow Model builders.


I just bought myself the Academy T34/85 "NO. 183 Factory Berlin 1945". Great kit, i just dont like the Link/Link Tracks. So i wanna upgrade to Metal-Tracks. Not a big fan of Fruil-Tracks, so i want to go with Masterclub.

So here to my question:
The T34/85 is based on the T34/76 chassis. So what kind of Tracks did they use in 1945? I found a few different kinds and i m not sure what what is. I always thought they only used one type of track for the whole War.

Here are two i found on ebay:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/1-35-MasterClub-MTL35198-Metal-Tracks-for-T-34-1943-Type-2/352862291279?hash=item52283b454f:g:Bo4AAOSwM~RbfUbB

hope i can get some help here.

cheers
David

By my count, there were 23 different tracks used on the T-34 series, many differing only in tiny ways. For your purposes, the second set should be fine.
