NEW Injection Molded Tracks 1/6 Scale M5 Stuart Tank (21st Century Ultimate Soldier)

Hey I have been working on a new set of injection molded tracks for the 1/6 Scale M5 Stuart Tank! They will be for sale soon on my website here: https://spykerworkshop.com/
Who is all interested in something like this? I know the M5 is super old and hard to come by these days but I feel there is enough of them out there to finally get around to making a proper track set!
The tracks are cast in Delrin Acetal simmilar to the tracks I offer for the 1/6th Sherman insane strength and fully water proof used with stainless steel screws.

Biggest challenge in doing these tracks was to make the connectors look scale, and in order to do that I still need to make a replacement drive sprocket. I will be 3D printing new sprockets that will be a bolt-on replacement to allow a proper scale longer connect to fit around the sprocket. The stock one's diameter is too large on the inside. I also will be making replacement top return wheels, those have the same issue and block the track connectors. Will post more images once I get those designed up!

Fantastic looking set, and incredible work! Unfortunately my budget only allows drooling and coveting. LOL

Nice work Ryan! I would definitely be interested in a set! Super cool! The M5 is an old product, but plenty of them still on market and lots getting upgraded so these are welcome products!

CAD of the sprocket. I will sell the sprockets and return wheels on their own because they also work with the stock tracks if you just need a sprocket replacement. The sprockets will come with extra hex parts as spares incase they wear out like the originals did.




This is the reason for having to re-make the sprocket also, the real track guides are much taller then the stock sprocket allows. This new one has a smaller inside diameter

Id be interested for my static Stuart. Just being reminded of the stock vinyl tracks that suffer from the old molding errors of the 1/32 Monogram US tanks, in 1/6 no less, just makes me sad whenever I look at my Stuart!

Now available for sale is our M5 track conversion kits! Bring your 1/6 Scale M5 Stuart Tank (21st Century Ultimate Soldier) back to life!

Delrin Track Set - Super strong, super scale, will never fall off like the stock tracks do all the time!
Sprockets - Way more accurate scale detail. (required for the track guides, but can be used on the stock tracks also!)
Return Wheels - Much more scale details, hidden screws. (required for track guides to fit behind)

I got a video up of the M5 doing some driving in some dirt and mud, and the assembly of how to put the kit together:
