Am I the only one who kept thinking to himself "those aren't interleaved road wheels"? -- jim

I'd ask Fort, also a woodworker, if he could do a Panther but I believe that his time is better employed turning out new ASL material than turning wood. At least for the ASL community.

Very nice model though.

Indeed, gotta have the right priorities.

The only person more picky than an ASL player is a historical miniatures player!

No, they don't.
Perhaps an interesting topic for a thread. AFV suspensions in ASL. 🤔
At the 9 minute mark, the video makes these statements:
The T-34 featured interleaved road wheels, meaning that the wheels overlapped each other
This way, they formed a continuous track-support structure
This design helped distribute the weight of the tank more evenly and contributed to its stability

Look at a Panther, Tiger I, or King Tiger and compare those interleaved road wheels to those on a T-34. A T-34 does NOT have interleaved road wheels. It does have a Christie suspension though. — jim

I agree with you. I noted the claim as I was watching, and I thought it weird. I was trying to highlight the difference between the video claim and reality. 👍
