It is not my habit to post complaints on this site so please forgive me if this sounds petty or is old news but... I've recently purchased several track sets from AFV Club that did not include all the parts needed to complete a standard set of tracks for a single vehicle. And, it seems Terry Ashley's review of AFV Club's new LVT tracks continues the problem.http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/afvclub/afv35226.html)
My experience has been with the Late Tiger I tracks, stock # 35093, which contained only half of the links needed for one tank. I have heard the same problem exists with their Early Tiger I tracks and now it appears to be repeated with the LVT set.
Has anyone else run into this issue?
Thanks for listening and please understand I think highly of AFV Club and typically look forward to building their kits quite a few of which are on my shelves.

Problem with AFV Club late Tiger tracks.
July 17 2012, 2:13 AM
These are two part with one larger part being the majority of a single track block and a smaller connecting part. Anyway about half the small parts in a set I got were missing the pin that allows them to articulate with the next block - i think they were maybe from the early track set.
Meant I had to cut and glue about 100 pins - not a biggie but frustrating.

Modern track sets...

I have built most of their modern track sets and have had no issues. These include their M48, M60, M1A1, M109, M113, etc. sets. They have all had enough and a few extra tracks with no mold issues on them.

have heard thats a good way to contact them

Like it or not FB is the way to go these days. I don't know why folks resist it. You can contact kit companies directly and often get much faster replies and responses than email, it seems. Other people have had good luck with AFV on FB.

The good, the bad and the ugly...

I've had mixed results building AFV Club workable tracks over the years.
Their M48/M60 track sets are very nice and quick to build, I've done several sets.
The T34 tracks (model 1942) are supposed to be clickable but come apart too easily, I had a lot of trouble with them and won't buy a set again.
The worst are their Sherman HVSS T80 tracks, a real nightmare to buiid.
Almost as bad were the Stuart tracks, I switched to flexible vinyl ones in desperation.
This above is just my own experience using AFV Club tracks, I've got many other of their sets in my stash but have yet to build them, so I won't comment.
