Track Belt Test fit…

Drumroll please… it fits.

One thing that is odd about this build, is that I actually am building the tank around the conveyor belt I got for the track.  I got a piece from a rubber store that was 6″ wide, and about 20 feet long.  I cut it in half, and each belt was 129″ long.   From this, I determined the scale of the tank.

So, after making all this other stuff, I needed to test the belt length to make sure I was still on track.  With the frame 5″ off the floor.  Looking basically perfect:

Then, a quick test of the overall size of the bogies.   The bogies are not done, there will still be a roller wheel on top, and they will be bolted to the frame, but, this is a decent test of their size:
