Well, I got the m1a1 italeri kit, and I'm doing the tracks now. They come in several sizes (all plastic) some are 8 track links long; some are 2 or 3, and some are just the one.
I've managed to build one side, and it was a pain. the tracks moved sometimes - making the track look bendy, and building the upper part and keeping it straight wasn't that easy too.
So, any advice or tips to help me not go nuts when i build the other side?

This ought to help.
Article from this very site:


Your kit has "link and length" tracks so you won't have to do the long straight sections one link at a time.
