Hello Frank,

Looks good! Are those plastic tracks or metal? They look like they may have some weight to them and thus some "sag". :think:

Cheers,
Eric.

Frank, it has all the makings of a great, and hopefully enjoyable, model. :thumbup: That Taigen metal/alloy hull is one of the best out there.
Are you planning to paint it? If so, I'd suggest removing the rubber tyres from the wheels- which will likely necessitate removing the wheels again, in fact. Generally, it's best to prime and paint the wheels before adding the tyres, and before the final fitting- ditto with the sprockets and idlers. They can be primed and painted in situ, but it's a real pain, and likely to be messy. :/ :D
