Hi folks: I've done some web searching but haven't found my answers; looking for a little help:
1) does anyone make individual link tracks for the JS3? I believe Fruil make a set that would fit but would prefer something easier to work with.
2) (and I know Tamiya is upgrading the Type 74)..does anyone make an up-detail set of any type for this tank? The kit is gorgeous, the age notwithstanding, and I really want to go to town on it. Barrels, tracks, details....any suggestions would be most welcome.
Thank you to all the amazing experts that populate this forum.

Trumpeter has a set of plastic workable track marketed as "Russian 650mm steel track for Russian KV/JS tank, ref. 02042". Have used it: nice, easy and fast to assemble, and cheap. Model Kasten has (or had) a workable set for the Type 74, mine is unbuilt but detail wise looks quite good. Not easy to find and expensive IIRC.
