Hi everyone.

Apologies as this might have gone to the wrong forum first.
Just a quick question if anyone can help.... I am currently doing an extensive cut-away of the excellent MiniArt SU 122 Early (my sample had a badly warped upper deck so used that as an excuse to do something radical). Can anyone advise on the best and correct metal replacement track set for this vehicle? The model will not be painted apart from primer grey and red cut-lines and lovely shiny metal shoes for it are wanted as part of the display.
Any help and advice is most welcome.
Cheers

ATL-09 from Friul tracks should do it.

http://www.friulmodel.hu/en/atl-09-t-34-85-i12/

They do make an early set, but if I remember SU 122 did not come out in the early years.
All waffle pattern.

Pricey though.

Hi Jeff

Many thanks for the reply. 09 might do it, thanks. As you say, pricey, but if Masterclub do a set I might try them. Either way, thanks for the heads up - much appreciated.

Maybe these?

"This set of individual link tracks for Masterclub is in their new metal track series and represents the 1943 UZTM 500mm “Wafer” or “Waffle” pattern depending on your terminology."
