Work has now begun on the friul tracks and very nice they are too. Very crisp detail on each link and only minimal clean up. The supplied wire for the pins needs running through a candle flame or similar as it's very springy and hard to straighten. Running the wire through flame takes the spring out of it and makes it a lot easier to work with.
I've gone for partial track runs to the first double return roller on each end as with the skirts on nothing can be seen. I do seem to have an issue with the front fenders which are slightly out of shape. These are very thin so I think it's just a matter of careful manipulation when I put the rest of the hull fenders on to get a better fit especially around the front idler area.
