Hey "yorkie"
Those new pictures in the catalog for the Pz. I idler looks way better- and the price seems reasonable. Are you going to be doing a decal line at all?

Your products definitely look promising! I like the idea of pre-cut lengths of wire for the tracks. Assembly will take only a few minutes!!

I'm looking forward to seeing more of products in the future. Any thought to tracks for BMP's?

And not to mention workable tracks for the LVTs!! Woo-hoo! Looking forward to checking those out as well as their LVT detailing and turret update sets. And hey, the replacement barrel for the Tamiya Merkava I sounds like a potential winner, too!!

Will any hobby shops or suppliers in the US carry the line...?

Thanks!

Aloha,

Johnny B.

Some shops in the US are taking pre-order now.

About the LVT track, it will not like the current products. It will have pressed brass frames, with resin/plastic pads added to it.

We are finalizing some details. The most difficult part is that there is a small pin that goes through the bolt on the connecting pin. We already have the working master for a while, but we need to test what production methods to be used.

As there will be long vacation for the Chinese workers from 9 Feb (it is Chinese New Year), and we can only resume full capacity at the end of Feb, so release time will be in March.

James, yes, we can do decal. But what should we do? You have any idea?;-)

Thanks, Yorkie!

One more question, if I could: is the LVT turret update set for the LVT (A) -1 or the LVT (A) 4...? Thanks, again!!

Looking forward to getting a look at and hopefully purchasing that LVT track! Also looking forward to your LVT detailing sets!

Regards and Aloha,

Johnny B.

I got the H39 track and PZ 1B idler wheel last Saturday( fast service!) and must say that they are both very nice and worth the money. The idler wheel looks like it just simply slips on the kit idler arm and that's it! The track assembles easily by pushing the pre-cut pin thru the holes of the track blocks, connecting the two. Each pin is the correct length. I ran a small drill bit thru the holes, but it isn't necessary on every block. I recommend them. Dan
