Can't get one because:
1-LDD has no treads
2-LDD is too expensive as of now
1-use bricklink
2:use bricklink!

Finally brickshelf is running..... here are the tracks:

This is from my BMP

With a couple of wheels removed.

The back of it.

This is the MBT track with the armor off, it's basically a longer version. I used a spoked wheels at the end since it was a smaller diameter than the other wheel, which gave the tracks some more slack for it to move properly.

*sorry for the quality of the pics again, I had to use my phone.

Okay, thank you very much for that, RoC77. That's a really nice design.

I think I just need a greater variety of pieces. I have enough tracks for a tank the size of your MBT, but I don't have the right pieces to put it together. I'll figure something out or finally do a Bricklink order.

Thanks again.

One can also build the tracks integrated with the actual hull of the tank. It takes some more trial and error though, but makes the resulting model a little more stable. Though, no other real advantages are accrued from such a setup, except not having to line the hull up with them...

With my tank that I have now, I built the treads first and went from there.
