Just wanted to throw an update in. I have some of the ref that I'm using and a few new screen shots of the tank. Still adding more shape to the M1 little bits here and there. I'm just using some place holders I made for the tracks while I workout the final design of them.

Thanks guy for the feedback, I really do appreciate it. 

Gauravcg the way I did these tracks was I modeled one track and the brackets, then I use a MEL script that I downloaded from Highend3D. All it does is instance's your model along a curve exactly like the 3Ds MAX script TrainMaker just not as good LOL. Here is the link http://www.highend3d.com/downloads/search?search=treads+script&x=0&y=0 I got the 3 bottom scripts they all sort of work the same and are a little bit bugy but they do the job.

Hope this helps you out Smiling

cheers.
