Im looking at Miniart's Australian M3 Lee and I am wondering if the 1 piece tracks from Academy or AFV Club will fit the Miniart M3 Lee kits?

Academy's M3/M4 tracks run a bit narrow.

I have not used their vinyl tracks. Some users report that their standard lengths have too few links for an M4, and that their M4A4 tracks are more suitable for M4 tanks. I cannot vouch for this, so you may want to do some searches on other modeling sites for discussions and reviews.

Nick: There's a guy on ebay who sells Asuka/Tasca vinyl tracks, Jack Roach. A set of T41s or T49s might be appropriate for your M3
