Hi Gary,

Great review. I'm saving up for these so when I get around to building my T95, it should look much better.

What does workable actually mean, does it mean you can push the tank along and he tracks will move?

Yes, if done right the track acts like a real one. These tracks are quite small so be extra careful when gluing the pins in. Not enough glue is better than too much to keep them working. I will be getting another set as I have two Type 95 kits (one normal, one Manchurian suspension).

These tracks are also the ones used on Pit Roads' IJA TYPE 98 4t PRIME MOVER SHI-KE in 1/35 scale.
