Nice review Rick

I have been keeping my eye out for one of these for a while now, I would be interested to know if the tracks would fit the old Italieri kits? as I know that AFV club have some individual tracks due for release and they may release the rubber ones if they fit and there is enough interest

cheers

Nice signature Keith.
I can't help but wonder if it would be a good thing to have less hidden detail and therefore a lower cost.

I would think that the hidden details may be beneficial in the long run if they plan on making several variants down the road. I dig this kit and thanks for the review Rick! Still not a fan of vinyl tracks, but my guess is that there is already an alternative or there will be one in the near future.
