Thanks for the look inside James. It's a great kit, builds up nicely. Has Dragon started adding that slot on the boggy?

No they havent. As I mentioned nothing has changed in the basic kit. Just added new parts for the IDF version. I have the Anti Tank one also with the SS-11s and its the same.

Wish someone could do something with the tracks. I know it's a live suspension but there's clearly photos of those tracks slack and under stress.

I think if they did them in the DS plastic that would be good. I just got a new book Basic Half-Track Vehicles M2, M3 Technical Manual and there is one picture where the tracks are really loose that would be a cool diorama if there was a soft track replacement. BTW the book would be my idea of a must for super detailers. Link is to Amazon.ca.

I guess my thing is, Dragon makes the bogie where it can be articulated many different ways but the tracks are rigid. Not sure if I want tracks like Tamiya's old ones but something in the middle.

Don't ask for much do I? :soldier

I was thinking the Dragon DS tracks, that tan coloured soft plastic. It would look good.

I don't think I've ever worked with them James. Yeah they would do the job. :v

So tell Dragon to get on it! :rotf
