Rigging a Pz.Kpfw.V Tiger I

Post by Lordof » Tue Sep 07, 2010 5:45 pm

Hello there.

I'm modeling a Tiger I but I'm wondering if I'm gonna be able to rig it with CDT. As you can see in the link,Tiger I does not have Support wheels and I'm not sure about how it's going to work if the track has to rest directly on the lower wheels. Has anyone tried anything like this before?

Thanks in advance

Hi Lardof,

The track can most definetly rest on the orinary wheels and you do not need to have the support wheels to lift the track up like in the manual. The support wheels are more there for restricting the tracks from moving out to unwanted places.

I would have the two front wheels and the two back wheels on each side connected with Inner Static Wheels. The middle wheels connected with Static Support Wheels and have support wheels to restrict the track from jumping to unwanted places.

I don't know if this helped you out since its a bit hard to explain in text ;) Let me know how you are doing.
