I agree with Matthew, the tracks look great. I'd love to see snap together tracks
for 21st's 1:18 line of armor...US and German. Well Done Grunt!
Love the Kit also!

Thank you for the positive feedback everyone! Some requested a photo of the tracks installed so here you go. Note that the Panzer I could run with either 87 or 88 links installed. I presume(?) this had to do with ground conditions, speed, traction desired, etc. Anyway, this is with all 88 links.

:shock: WOW very impressive. :salute:

That's the look that would help make 21st's armor look more model than toy.

Here’s an interesting variant one could make from Grunt1’s Panzer I: the Panzer I Ambulance utility vehicle.
