LVT 4 from WWII

I have been working on another LVT build because of an idea that was planted in my gord from a question here about making tracks for an LVT from phrog phyler. It is not finished by any means, but I will post pictures of what I have accomplished. Comments and discussion about the build are welcomed.

Thanks Blitz! I am trying to be as faithful to the real thing as I can and still make it RC. So far everything is working OK. I made the grousers on the HL M-26 Snow Leopard plastic track from carbon fiber tubing that I CA'd in place.

LVT 4 build

Well, I am in the final stages of getting all of the operational bugs worked out of it. Hopefully will get to do some sea trial this weekend.

I took her out for her maiden voyage today. Here is a short clip of how it went. My neighbor was kind enough to film it for me with my camera. What do you think?

Your work is a credit to you. After the hours of pains taking work you must be very proud of your new green baby. The trial looked good and I'm sure it you have any bugs the next video will be even better. I wish I had your talent for model building but i suppose we who watch enjoy your patience.
Thanks again
Jeff

Thanks for those kind words. I still have a lot of detail work to do, but at least it is in working condition now.
