I'm not sure what you mean by "official". Do you mean they're in 7P scale?

Would love to see a battle with terrain based around this!

How are you stretching the flex track to reach the offset trail/compressing it to fit the in-line rail?

Pythagorean geometry demands answers. :geek:

The farther track is one stud closer to the joint then the closer one

Seems interesting, but the real question is can the trains actually navigate the turns? if so, I might need to make some...
The LF-D5 "Stub" is the top of the line in agriculture frames, designed to haul heavy farm equipment. It is also easy to repair, with standardized connections between all joints. Buy one today.

Also, it's also quite cute on the battlefield....

I haven't tested with the hinges yet. But if you look here ( http://mobileframehangar.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5014 ) at the original curve design, that I have tested, which do work. I found one of the truck pieces, so if I can find 1 or 3 more I can test the system out more.

Interesting. Will definitely have to try it out, when I get the chance.
