First Look

Trakz is a series of armor and AFV detail/converion sets that come from the creative minds of VLS. Let's look at one of their latest offerings. Click on the photo to see an enlarged view.

To make the job of painting your Type 97 wheels much easier, use these handy wheel masks! These will save you loads of time in either masking or resorting to hand-brushing the tires.

My sincere thanks to VLS for this review sample!
