Hello all

I have just completed fixing and painting the tracks for the Dragon 1/6 Sherman and found when fitting the track to the sprocket wheel the tracks do not engage with the cut outs on the sprocket wheel.

It appears, to me, that the sprocket wheel is too narrow for the track sections to
'sit' in their respective 'cut out'.


I managed to prise apart the two halves of the sprocket wheel and
by holding these apart by about an extra 5mm the track sections fit comfortably.

Has anyone experienced this?

Thanks

Alan

Bit of a delayed update!

This issue has now been resolved following talks with the rep at Dragon.

The sprocket wheels were indeed too narrow, phew! I thought it was meBigGrin

However there was no hesitation in Dragon sending me new parts which duly arrived the next day!
