Always like the odd tank, like French or Japanese. Nice review.

Thanks for the very concise review of DRAGON's Late HA-GO (Peleliu). Once again, DRAGON shines in their execution of an AXIS tank...

I wish that DRAGON would exert the same kind of effort IN CORRECTING THEIR US/ALLIED Armor and AFVs- Namely, their M3-based US Half Tracks, Jeeps, M4-series Tanks, M6A1, Post-War M48s, and M103A1 kits. But we all know that DRAGON won't bother correcting anything that isn't a WWII Axis model!!! I am still under-whelmed!!!

Were ALL the Ha-Go's tracks the same? No late or early versions? Where would I look to find out?

I agree about the DS tracks. This one needs to sag like crazy!

Nice review on a very interesting tank.

Thank you all for the comments.

Jeff, the tracks were the same. Japan made very few changes with their tanks, and comparatively built very few. I have seen aftermarket sets for workable indy links, starting at around $30.00.
