Here are the two uppers with the common lower.

Here they are again, showing the hollowing out that I have done.

Here is how they would look on tracks:

There is still more work to be done,
for one thing I will have to make 2 molds of the lower hull,
Perhaps then I will make changes to the stowage items.
I am thinking of making these as "full" kits.
Please tell mne what you think.

But I cannot be sure.
For now I can offer these both with the standard track
(till someone complains)
As far as there being two different kinds....
when I looked up the references, I saw both kinds.
I hope this answers your question.

Hey Ken, looks great! the drive gear cover is rounded though( sorry for nit picking, I crawled in the RAM 1 and 2 in Borden and that's what they had).I will try and find photos(think I still have them). Other than that they really do look great,very happy your doing this. Cheers Pete

The first pic I looked at shows the cupola version in the front & the plain one behind, unfortunately you can't make out the suspension type.
I think I like the cupola version more.
look forward to the Sexton too.
Cheers Elliott
