Hello guys

I've decided to try my luck with the metal workable tracks today and bought 1 for my panther and 1 for my Pz4.

Anyway, i'm having a hard time pushing in the wire into the holes. I even damaged and bend some track links unknowingly! Read up on some 'how to' articles on the net and learned about 'drilling' the holes to make it smooth for the wires.

Now, are these 'drill's those handheld ones you can find in those DIY shops?

Hi Danny. You need a pin vice and a set of mini drill bits that can be found at any good hobby shop. the kind you get from adiy are going to be way too big. axacto[sic] sells a set #61 thru#80 that will fit the bill.

Check out Micromark.com. The Xacto set is good but overpriced IMHO. This set is cheaper and should do the trick just fine, but you will need to buy the actual pin vise separately
