I'd be interested to see what the quality of the kit is like as I've had a recent bad (-REALLY BAD) experience from an Eastern Bloc model company where I had to -literally- replace most of the kit parts with stuff my spares or completely form my own. I ended up throwing away or modifying a goodly half of the kit parts before I figured that that was as good as it was going to be. Ugh!

The big problem with the from the east bloc kits is the very soft plastic and on the oily side too

I have the IBG Marmon Harrington armored car and it appears to be a fantastic kit. IBG has a good reputation for producing well made kits.. I can't see this as being a high risk kit. Eastern European manufacturers such as Alan, Mirage, RPM and Eastern Express do not have a good reputation and rightfully so...... soft plastic, clunky details, ejector pin marks and substandard molding are prevalent. This little tankette looks interesting to me...I might just get it.

and I have all the TKS-variants made by by Mirage hiding somewhere in the stash. Single link tracks .... for a very small vehicle .... with narrow and short pitched tracks .... AAARRGHH / Robin
