I've had Italeri's Elefant ordered for a while, and it has just showed up (I can't even order the Dragon kit localy, much less find it on the shelves). I was wondering if the Elefant had similar tracks to the Tiger - the kit tracks aren't the worst vinyl tracks around, but i can get Academy Tiger links locally fairly cheap, so I'm just curious.
As always - any info is greatly appreciated.

I think that the Elefant tracks of the kit is not correct, it has the center "V" of the chevlon inverted...so if you need your tracks to be accurate, you might consider change to Friul's. I have the same kit, and usually I like DML tracks, but in this case, I had ot purchase the Friul track.
