I know what you mean....my solution is the AFV Club wheels and tracks set. The Tamiya road wheel arms are just simplifications anyway. The real 251 idlers for example are opposite as they should be, in other words, one adjuster/axle faces forward, the other side axle faces rearward... The lower hull lacks some serious detail as well...in fact there isn't any! Also, the side armor plates for the lower hull aren't there.

Nothing you can do about the engine bay doors, unless you replace the upper hull with one from Dragon for example or sand them down, but replacing the upper hull panel would need some work to get them to mate together properly.

The Dragon upper hull panel is much better detailed also.

These are my solutions for my Stuka Zu Fuss project.

Cheers, Paul
