Top Studio has chain/sprockets but you may have to retrofit the sprockets.

If only we 48 guys had a reasonable chain maker.[:-boggled]

Louis I order to different chains but none to fit. Thanks for asking.

Frank you bet your A**!! There is not way they will fit and it you just lay them on top of the gears it'll look like sh*t!

Philip I'll give them a look maybe they have one set that would work.

Its hard to believe he made such a nice kit and never figured on the chain.

Jerry, it might sound crazy, but would any jewelers type chain work, and look OK?
Just an idea or my opinion to look into.

Louis the problem is the sprockets are two different sets of teeth one large and one small.

So if I could find a different sprocket I think that would be the way to go.

Wandered over the net searching for model chain. The guys that build static boats might have what your looking for.

Here's a direct link to 16 sizes.

BTW, I like the looks of that "tugger".

The only thing left to do is the chains on the sprockets!!

The chain supplied does not fit. Most likely because the teeth on the two sprockets are different sizes...

Option #2 rubber band. .............Ha..........
