Thank you James.
No problem mate. This is how i assemble Trumpeter single link tracks:
First off all you need some good music or maybe some interesting historical documentation. This is necessary or you gona insane while cleaning up the tracks.
First step is to remove all the needed tracks from the sprue. I do it separate for each side. To store the tracks i use disposable 0,2 cl vodka plastic jars. Belive me, they are only for modeling, no drinking.
The T-90 links are made from two parts, single link track and guide horn. Therefore you will need 4 jars.
After all the tracks are removed from the sprue, i start with cleaning them up. Its better to use a sharp hobby knife to remove the attachment points then to sand them off. The area won't be visibe in the end.
You can remove the guide horns from the sprue with a side cutter. If you cut it right under the part, you don't need to clean them up.
After you managed to clean all the parts you can start gluing the guide horns to the tracks. You can directly put the tracks together. After you have glued the last guide horn, you already will have a complete track run on your desk.
I use Tamiya extra thin cement for my models. You just need to brush the glue over the tracks. I do it on the inside and outside of the run. After you finished it you need to let the glue set for about 7-10 minutes.
You can test it by picking up the track run from the desk or check if the glue it not sticky anmore.
Now you just need to wrap the track run around the wheels, idler wheel and sprocket.
I always mount the tracks from the underneath so the connection point is above.
Let the tracks set over the night.
Thats all. Hope it will help.
