To those of us
who love link and length tracks, but are tired of assembling them,
cometh Modell Trans.
The main advantage is obvious: it allows
for extremely fast assembly, more so as the wheels are perfectly aligned
with the stubs on the UM hull.
Alignment of the individual tracks
links is not always perfect, and Modell Trans followed the UM instructions
which will have you install the tracks backwards.
Not immediately obvious to the casual observer is the fact that Modell Trans improved the roadwheels, and this is one of the more convincing points of this set. They have improved the rim, or better they added a rim, and thinned the thickness of the rubber tyres, which is overscale in the UM kits. The hub detail has also been improved. Idler and drive sprocket remain unaltered.
Note that this set will also work for the rear-engined Marders (e.g. this one) and rear-engined Bisons derived from the Pz 38(t) (which keep the two return rollers), but not for the mid-engined variants (which only had one return roller) nor for the Hetzer.
