Great review Al, looks like a "must get" kit.

Have ITA changed the idler for this version with the heavy cast track or is the same as before? The tooth spacing is different between the two types of track so the standard AFV Club idler doesn't quite fit the heavy track properly.

Hi Ken,

The kit idlers complete.





If I add the front mudguards I'll save these for an alternative build, unless I go down this route.
