The quality of the casting is excellent with just the casting block along
one edge of the link to be cut off and the result scar cleaned up, there is
the occasional thin resin film to deal with but this hardly evident and virtually
falls off where present.
The detail is excellent with well defined track shoe and end pin details that look very good around the drive sprocket and on the tracks in general.
The guide teeth are noteworthy as they have a small stepped effect on the tooth which is evident on the real tracks and shows the attention to detail on the links.
The track links are designed to snap fit together with the links having small pins on one side and corresponding locating holes on the other of each link.
Assembly is very quick and straightforward with you simply slipping the link over one pin and slightly flexing the opposite end while applying light finger pressure to click in pin in place in the opposite locating hole.
After assembly the links articulated very freely making for a natural track sag when fitted to the model and the links did not tend to pull apart with normal handling as some snap together links can do.
The fit around the Tamiya drive sprocket was superb without any play and fitting snugly between the sprocket teeth which adds to the final excellent appearance.
A superb set of workable tracks that are easy the assembly and quite robust with minimal cleanup required and will certainly enhance the appearance of your T-72.
Thanks to Dmitriy from Model Point US for the review set.
