the ET model set adds some nice details there! I am glad you liked MC tracks. they are the best. When I wrote about 83 I meant that there were 83 on the real vehicle.

Hi Roman...your review and blog were very helpful in this build.

I'm not sure why the length of the tracks varied between our models. It may have been irregularities in the pitch of the links on the Master Club tracks, or I might have assembled something incorrectly. I tried 83 links and couldn't get them to join up. After a bit of test fitting, I found that 86 links gave a degree of droop that looked right.

Well done, Neil...it looks great. The cast-metal texture gives it a nice "heavy" look to the model.

It's a great model, I'm not too sure about the colors as photos can be deceiving and it's a matter of taste.

I'm not a big fan of color modulation and that green looks very "yellow", almost "apple green" (vert pomme en franšais dans le texte).

Cheers,

Christophe
