Fine Molds continues with its kit track upgrade campaign from that of one piece rubber tracks to link-and-length ones. Next in line is its previously released kit on the improved turret version of the IJA Type 97 medium tank.
IJA Type 97 Shinhoto Chi-Ha (Early Hull) (FM 26). The kit will now come with a sprue containing link-and-length tracks. A decal sheet with options to finish the vehicle either in IJA service or with the Chinese PLA.

Target release date is mid-June 2018.

Does anyone know if those track sprues could be bought separately? I guess there are some Fine Molds tank kits out there in various stashes which have the rubber band tracks .... / Robin

All the previous Fine Molds kits I have, are the rubber band tracks. Their recent releases (at least the ones I bought) now have the hard plastic track/link sectionals that are molded to mimic the 'resting on the return roller' sag look. Pretty nifty actually. To know if they are sold separately, I see no evidence of that at the moment. Maybe Fine Molds might let you buy a set. Personally, I've outfitted all my Fine Molds kits with either Friuls or R Model metal tracks.
