Good work!  I like the direction it's going to. Re the tracks: if you can find them, AFV Club packages their one piece 3-bar cleat T-49 tracks separately, if that's what you need, and they're responsive to cryo glue. There's also a bunch of plastic indie link sets by AFV Club, all inexpensive and not terribly fiddly.

Very interesting build Rob. Your tractor has come along nicely, it is definitely an unusual subject, I don't think I have ever seen one of these vehicles modeled before.

Very impressive! The detailing is outstanding. There have been a couple other nice builds of the kit posted here, but yours is in a class of its own.

looking great. I built on of these in 1/72? scale many years ago. I reckon they are a really interesting vehicle. Might have to have a crack at one in 35th one day. sadly I don't have one in the stash. Oh my! Does that mean I'm going to have to buy another kit? how upsetting.....

Despite the few items you still need to finish, it an outstanding job on a rare animal. It looks fantastic and you've really gone the extra mile to add wonderful extras. My next Boddington's is dedicated to your build. Cheers!
