Renault UE vs. Renault R35 Tracks?
Posted by Leichenmacher on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 10:48 AM

Hello all!

Working on a Renault UE (ICM 1:35) kit and wanting to put metal tracks on it.  However, no one specifically makes them.  However, I noticed that the tracks on the Renault R35 look very, very similar... perhaps the same.

Can anyone verify if these two vehicles used the same track?  Or does anyone have both kits and can compare them?

Or failing that, does anyone have an R35 (or R35 variant) that can post some pictures with dimensions of the tracks used on it so I can compare that to the UE tracks I have?

(I recently built a German Rutscher that also did not explicitly have metal tracks available but figured out that the Sd.Kfz.250 tracks are identical, so used those.  Hoping to do the same thing here)!

Thanks in advance for any help available!

This is definitely not my area of expertise, but doesn't Tamiya make this kit as well? I know their plastic tracks tend to be better than many other companies' tracks.

You might be able to order a set of their tracks.

Yes (and I have that kit too).  And the tracks are better (and I ordered a sprue from Tamiya as a fallback).  But I really would like to use metal, workable tracks if possible.

I did find some 3D printed workable plastic ones (but expensive).  Would really like to use metal, workable tracks if possible.

Thanks for replying though!
