Response to I just love Steve Zaloga's M24 in What's New ! That is one beautiful model he did. nt.

....that the kit is very high-tech and complex to build. I would've much preferred to have more of an upgraded 'shake & bake" kit.

Here's some of the text from Steve's review:

"The kit provides tiny PE numbers to do the some of the transmission housing casting numbers."

"The kit comes with torsion bar arms, separate external suspension arms, and multiple-part wheels with very small axles. As a result, everything wobbles around, and there is no solid fit of the wheels to the axles."

PE numbers for the transmission housing and separate external suspension arms.....are you kidding me?!

Hopefully Tamiya/Dragon will answer the call.
