Ok instead of throwing away my 1/35 Dragon T-72's and BMP's. Does anyone know if the Fruilmodel tracks will work with them

Hi;

I Would Not Waste Fruil, on these kit's ! If you have to then I would try and source Trumpeter RMSH and try to fit the Drive Sprocket into the track's ! Trumpeter also makes there track's for the BMP also !

GOOD LUCK; MIKE.

Friul T-72 tracks come with metal sprockets. I can't tell for the BMP tracks.

Joey.
I would spend good cash simply to 'polish a t*rd' with Friuls on the now ancient and inaccurate DML T-72 kits. Why not offload them (there are plenty of newbies in the hobby who won't want to pay premium kit prices as they find their way) and put it towards buying a Trump or Meng T-72 on eBay? You will get one MUCH cheaper there than retail or even at a hobby show or using the 'Wants' section on this site.

Meng's T-72 and T-90 kit tracks are also very good and subjectively don't need any AM tracks at all.

I have no idea about the BMPs so others may know more.

Good luck
Gary
