Sherman Track WE210
Kit #7263

Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 18 November 2007.

Also called "double-I" or "double-H" 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, though several of the track runs are a bit twisted, which may be difficult to correct. Replacement idler wheels with open spokes are included in resin. Solid 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, and I think they will look better than the Mirage WE210 tracks. So far, this track style has not been included in any of the Dragon kits, so this set and the Mirage set are the only games in town for now.
