Hi gents, Iam new to the world of 1/56 scale, a modeller rather than a gamer , i saw a m3 halftrack and thought why not, very impressed indeed so i ordered another along with a m4a3 sherman. they could be the first of many.  Not into ww2 as such but the halftracks and shermans are amongst my favourite vehicles used by the Israelis so a few conversions are the order of the day. Eagerly awaiting the m4 and m4hybrid kits to hit the shelves, hoping the m4a1 76mm is not to far away. Just need to get hold of more easy 8 track sets.
Anyway seasons greeting to everyone

Welcome . It would be nice if track sets or separate sprues  could be purchased for kit bashing purposes like Asuka ( Tasca ) do in 1/35 . Maybe some one on here might trade you a set .

It is a frame by itself. I queried it and was told that they’re not in a position to do it yet though.

I have lots of HVSS, but will need them for many many more Sherman’s.

Maybe we could start a  " parts wanted " thread . If I get around to picking up a M4A3 I'm not going to need the HVSS wheel sets so I'll pass them on .
