Tracks printed overnight, they look OK at first look.  They are over an inch wide by the looks of it!

They'll be a pain to cast as is!

This is why I print then, it's much easier to see the problems!  I'll extend the back of the wheels to meet the back plate, reduce the undercut behind the front wheels and thicken the tracks up, I'll probably fill in the holes too.

First print.  Has some issues but good enough for a draft.

Now... would you want opening rear hatches or not?  Problem is it'll be a shallow depression behind them which will be hard to disguise.

The driver and commander hatches open ;)  I'll leave it at that unless the customer wants different ;)

For me, not particulary interested, unless it makes it easier to mould.

Now the roof hatches, that might be interesting for anyone after a cheap ACAV.

It does look very good.

Won't make it easier - it'll add to the part count though!

Mk2 tracks are very nice (and a bit more sturdy)
Hull mk2 on the printer now.
