This is the problem, without the trimming and snipping, the tracks are just too long for the vehicle hull, maybe mould shrinkage in the larger hull pieces or incorrect design? Either way, I'm glad the newer kit has addressed this error and the tracks now come already moulded in place. I'll be glad when finished!
And another four end links trimmed to fit, the single link was attached to the angled piece, but with careful hobby saw and trimming, it will be the final link to be put in place! As this is on the rear of the tracks, it will not be immediately noticed, only under careful examination of every track link can you see the smaller narrower links, by spreading the error along the entire length of track, its far less noticeable.
Wish me luck, thanks for checking my progress out. Cheers, Siph.
