Thanks, Russ, very helpful review, especially the photos showing them installed on the drive sprockets. And no knock out pins on the links, unlike the Dragon Magic Tracks--very nice!

thanks!
another one to the plastic AM tracks
did you get a spacer to the sprocket (sometimes there is a a difference between track width and sprocket width)?

James, thanks for posting this and providing the links to the other reviews.

Matan, I just placed the tracks straight to the sprocket. I have a ways to go on the Tamiya Pz. IV and didn't test fit the sprocket with tracks against the hull, but on the StuG, there was no problem at all.

Panzer III A-G and Panzer IV A-D used the 36cm track, at least from what I have been able to find.

nice set might have to get a few of these, tristar's panzer IV wheels set added some much needed detail too some of my older panzer IV kits, glad they've released the tracks to go with but my one question is will they be releasing the 36cm for the earlier panzer III's and IV's? as i've got quite a few early variant's of these tanks.
