First Look

For a number of years modelers first complained that they wanted single link tracks, and when they got them they complained they wanted one-piece tracks back again. DML has gone both ways, and this is another of their nice sets of VVSS Sherman track now available separately.

This set is the T54E1 track – US style steel cleat with gaps in the ends of the links - as fitted with extended end connectors. These are suitable for many applications with M4 series tanks and related vehicles, and with some work will also work on other manufacturers’ M4 series kits as well. (That usually pertains to the drive wheels and perhaps the length of the tracks). As with all of the DS tracks, detail rivals resin but the tracks are flexible and assemble with any good plastic cement.

Overall these are a worthwhile investment for any M4 modeler or “Shermaholic” as we call ourselves!

Thanks to DML for the review sample.
