I am preparing to build my Pz-IV (H) from Tamiya. On a whim, I picked up a pair of metal, individual linked tracks. I can't specifically remember the brand (and I am not at home, but at work right now... shhh, don't tell my boss...)
I do know that the set contains about 110 individual white metal tracks with lengths of wire to trim to fit them together.
I have never used these tracks before, so I was curious if anyone can give me some pointer? The only warning the guy at my local hobby shop gave me is that the metal wire can be really sharp and it is easy to drive it into your fingers (Great...).
Mostly I need to know what I should be securing the wire with?
they sound like Fruilmodelismo tracks. They should be fixed with a blob of CA glue on the open ends of the pin. You can use the wire supplied, as I do, but some people prefer to use straight dress pins or brass wire to fix them. I find that the Fruil wire affords plenty of sag if you get the right amount of links. Good luck and enjoy.
