I am building a 1/5 Canadian Leopard tank out of wood, aluminum, and
plastics..the track and road wheels are made from a liquid plastic compound
with a shore hardness of 80d..tensile strength of 3900psi and compressive
strength of 4700psi..I make my own molds from rubber, the track has rubber
inserts and the road wheels have rubber on the rim..the track and wheels can
also be made from a harder rubber..  I would be willing to make wheels and
track for other tanks if people are interested..the price would be very low
as the product is not too exspensive it just takes time to do the
casting..depending on how many molds there are..let me know if anyone is
interested in having this done..  Garnet
