About the kit

This is a pretty old kit acquired on Ebay. I think it is from Ostmodels but it is not a certainty. The tracks have a nasty reinforcing band on the inside without any link separators or guide teeth. The hull roof is missing the line separating the front from the rear, at its widest point. That should not be too hard to correct. More difficult to fix is the body where the outside angle where the two body sidewalls meet protrudes from the mudguards where they should be flush. Either live with it or extend the fenders with strip to cover the angle.
