Sherman Track T54E1
Kit #7262

Also called steel chevron tracks. Enough track is included for one complete tank, with perhaps a little extra for stowage, though I'm not sure. Casting is excellent, with very few blemishes in the resin. Two styles of idler wheels are included in resin: open spoke and stamped, both with detailed hubs. Open tooth sprocket wheels are also included in cast metal. These track sets came out a while ago when the only decent Sherman in town was the ESCI kit, so these sprocket wheels are included because they have the correct number of sprocket teeth, unlike the ESCI (now Italeri) kit. Overall these tracks look pretty decent, though I feel that the chevrons are molded a little bit flat. The T54E1 tracks that come with some of the later Dragon Sherman kits look a bit nicer than these.
