This is another great set from Legend. Sure wish they added a barel too, because the kit supplied one is not up to today's standards.

How are the loader's hatch springs formed? By using the brass wire supplied or are they supplied pre-formed?

Thank you for the review.

Are the tracks of the kit suitable for this version? I've seen some photos of the real tank with different style tracks with rectangular rubber parts, but I don't know enough this tank to know if the old style M-48 tracks are suitable to, although poorly moulded.

Yes, they are the correct tracks for an M48A2GA2. I don't believe Diehl tracks were ever fitted on the M48A2GA2 unless it was a trial version.

Probably this was the case.
