Nice paintjob, but ...

Hello Michael,

You relly did a nice paint job and the model looks extremely well represented,
but it almost hurts to see that tracks where Tamiya set the end connectors always
on one track segement instead of combigning them.
Please replace the tracks and the model will end up in a real beauty.

Best wishes

Gert
