    If I was to suggest one model that Draf has laseparts for it has to be the PAK40!!

    Or else Draf has tracks for the following models
    Chi-ha, Chi-he (1:25)
    Crusader (1:25)
    IS-2 (1:25)
    Kingtiger (1:25)
    Panther (1:25)
    Panzer III (1:16)
    Panzer III, IV (1:25)
    SdKfz 250 (1:16)
    SdKfz 250 (1:25)
    T-34 (1:25)
    T-54, T-55 (1:25)
    T-60 (1:25)
    Tiger I (early version) (1:25)

    So there might be something that suits you there :)

    Draf Laser tracks can be ordered here in the US from

    I found the tracks for the Greif but they are for the 1/25 scale version.

    Here is the page

    If you need the 1/16 version or anything else that you can't find on this site, there is a "contact us" button on they lower left of most pages of the site.

    The owners name is Krys and he will answer you and you will find him very helpful and friendly.
    I buy a lot of models and accessories from this fellow and I cannot recommend him highly enough! He's just fantastic!

    Another update on the Greif.
    I have been working on wheels,tracklinks and other details lately.

    Unfortunately I have lost some of the parts during my move to the new construction site, so I had to make the wheels without some parts( luckily they are hidden parts inside the wheels)
    So I had to do some braintwisting figuring how to make the wheels without the parts and improvise to get them look like the others.

    The tow hook.

    The finished wheels....just 3 more to go :)

    Some parts that will be put on later since it's so easy to damage them at this stage.

    Some handgrips over the drivers head

    I'm not sure what to call this part...

    The pile of jerrycans rises!

    At last a couple of overviews of the finished side :)

    WOW this is very nice..... i want it too! Guess it would have been a good idea to make a copy of the plans before cutting and gluing, this way you would have had the parts......

    I'm so scared i will make a stuff up and always make copy's and rather build the copies

    Cool! I can't wait for either one, Johnny!

    I also hope that the JU will be a lot of fun to try to build!
    It's really a huge project.....
    But since I build a bit here and there I can have two models in the works at the same time :)
    So you just prepare for some action in a very near future!!

    What detail?? I have looked over and over and only see one of the headlights are upside I'm blind as a hen sometimes (or very often really)
