    WOW!!! what a super build and conversion to rc. Some years ago I had the chance to see a real working kettenkrad in Limehouse, Ontario, Canada, the owner was a guy named Frank Grant who had a mini museum there. The Kettenkrad was lost one of several German vehicles he had there along with uniforms and gear etc. He also bought and sold items as well

    I have read that the front wheel would/could only steer the vehicle on long, sweeping turns, on paved or cobblestone roads and highways....off-road, the tracks were used to steer it.....

    I am wholly impressed.

    Beautiful work on all levels, but especially the RC part. That gets me where I live.

    I've contemplated this same conversion several times.

    I'd really like to see how you animated the steering.

    The steering is similar to haftracks like the sdkfz250 etc. When using the steering the front wheels, handle bars the track selection is not engaged until the steering wheel or handle bars pass a certain degree then the tracks kick in and de-clutch the tracks to make the turn

    I like the soundtrack as well. O Fortuna from Orff's Carmina Burana. Nice.

    I wanted to revive this thread. Absolutely stunning work. I remember admiring this post a few years ago. One question I have is on the NSU emblems on the front left and right fenders, was this accurate that there was a left and right NSU trademark version? I cant find the raised photo-etched decal anywhere on the net to purchase. There are some paper decals available but the seller says if there were trademarks placed that it was usually only on the left or right but not both. If they were placed on both sides then they faced the same way not opposite like the work above.

    I checked Cyber-Hobby website recently and found a set of the NSU emblem plates for my kettenkrad. This set is metal and there is a right and left. This set is just like the set used on the model in the above post. Looks good.
