Looks like a really nice kit for the British equivalent to the US M113 APC.

Thanks for the great review, Graham, always thought that these were a lot more interesting than M113s.

Thank you for your review. I must have this kit in my stash but not yet.

Tracks conception is interesting for spend less time to build them but bottom flat portions will not fit a rough terrain.

You are exactly correct, suspension arms and track construction is designed for ease and speed of construction. To place this on an uneven base would require a bit of effort.
