Marco, a very informative and interesting review. I hope that you do a build feature of this kit. I am building the Tiger I F13 at the moment and was wondering if you foresee any problems with the rear idler. On mine I find that the shaft/axle is too long and had to be cut down. Also, the inner wheel portion is too thick to allow the track guide horns to sit properly.

I built a test shot. This kit bears no relation to the Fehrmann kit.
I found the wheels were a little too tight on the axles, so sanding the axles a bit is advisable.
