Tauro Fiat 3000

I bought and built one of these over twenty years ago while a lieutenant in Germany. I wasn't satisfied with the build but grabbed another before I left. At the time, I thought it might be worth something in the future. Does anyone know if there is any aftermarket items to improve this kit? Or better yet, is it even worth it to try to improve.

I remember finding the vinyl tracks too short on the kit I built. Did anyone make replacement tracks?

I'm staring at my small stash of WW1/pre-war tanks, (Tauro A7V & Fiat 3000, AER T-18 and RPM FT-17) and have an urge to build one. I've tried the A7V (started one in Germany and like the Fiat, grabbed it for later), and am very aprehensive about ever taking that kit out of the box. I've read some stuff on the AER kit that Steve Zaloga wrote for Boresight and have set that kit aside as well. I've seen a MR Modellbau (?) conversion for the FT-17 to make it into a US 1917 tank and want to go that route for it so I don't want to start it until I run that item down.

That leaves me the Tauro Fiat.
