Since I got all the hardware for this Shelley Foss, I will either...

Thx for the info. The tank is a Christmas present, and if the tracks don't fit it would be a real letdown. And with Matomart's Black Friday deal right now, it would save $20 to order today if needed....

any ideas when the Heng Long T-34 will be available in North America?

I see it is available across the pond, but nothing in North America. I emailed Matomart asking, but have not heard back. Anyone hear anything?
