Response to m4 track - assembly "photo" guide

Great tutorial as always! I learned to do this myself after my first attempt to build a M10. I could not get the bogies just right with super glue. I'd heard of the CA method but had none to hand. I went ahead and did it without the CA. I got everything ready in advance with the individual links glued onto the drive sprocket. Then I put the sprocket on its mount dry and I glued the top track length to it with the first bogie sitting loose on its mount. Using the locator hole on the top length I glued the first bogie return roller to it. This was the key to keeping everything else in line. I then put the next two bogies in place and glued their return rollers to the top length before putting the idler on dry and glueing it to the top length. Then I work back under the bogies with the remaining lengths and unlike with superglue you can ease everything into place. If you work quick it gives good results and once dry the assembly pulls away easily and it helps so much with painting. I use it on all my M4s including the RAM I have on the go just now (thats M4 number 5 for me). I'll show some picks soon.

Keep the tutorials coming Murat, us 'newbies' need them! Do one on fading please!
