New Project - Got tracks but not a tank

Since I'm great at starting projects and never finishing, I figured I'd post on another new project!


Can you guess what it is? Its got tracks but is not a tank.

Parts are all scratch made except tracks. Those are from DAS GIESSWERK in Germany. All 3D printed parts from Shapeways from my CAD models.


3D printed rims, rubber tires. Thanks to TigerTiki for the lovely tires!




Machined sprocket, 3D printed hub cab:



Bogey assembly, 3D printed frame, Alum wheels from TigerTiki, some machined parts, 3D metal printed parts, Mcmaster Carr springs, Machined ABS tires:


Bogey assembly; 3D printed frame mounting brackets, machined tube:



Tracks from Germany:



Cast Alum idlers from Tigertiki, 3D printed hub cap:



Another view of bogey assy:



Test fitting the bogeys, sprocket and idler to the tracks..



And last one...tracks with tire:



Till next time...

Thanks for looking fella's. Leonard you're spot on. Always loved the Opel trucks. An Opel with tracks is even better. More to show soon.
Best regards,
Bob
