Hi guys.

I've got the Meng and Takom Panther Ausf A kits. The Meng one cones with individual link tracks which I really like but the Takom one has full interior and Zimmerit.

Does anyone know if the Meng tracks will fit onto the Takom vehicle?

Thanks!

Should have no problem,just check the drive sprockets on both kits and see if they match they should be more or less the same.
Test fit both tracks and sprockets.

Since you have both full kits, and IF there is a fit difference with the tracks, you could just switch the drive gears as well.
