Hans-Hermann Bühling took the opportunity to take some pictures of some factory fresh tank tracks that will be good reference for modern armour builders.

Fascinating! Something most of us would probably never see otherwise.
Thanks, Hans-Hermann!

I'm not sure that one would be needed; the paint on the track castings would likely wear off quickly, returning you to the standard 'dark metal or rusty?' question. Perhaps for pristine parade vehicles...
