Is there anybody out there who did not use and want the tracks from the Trumpeter early T-62A or Tamiya T-55?

If so would you be kind enough to donate them to my el cheapo T-54 project?

Kind Regards

I also have a set of Tamiya T-55 rubber bands if you need them.

Just so it is clear, Tamiya tracks will not work with the Trumpeter T-55's for a couple of reasons:

1. The sprocket teeth do not match the tracks.

2. The T-55 tracks are too tight without adjusting the Trumpeter suspension

It is not to say it cannot be done, but it will be harder than just swapping out tracks.
