Panda Plastics M3 and M4 Skeletal Tracks

Panda Plastics is the company who took over an established and well received line of injection molded polystyrene tracks formerly sold by RHPS Models several years ago.  In rapid succession, the first seven products from the RHPS catalog were released and now, a worn T-48 tracks had been added.  These were released at the 2009 AMPS Nationals which I was unable to attend.


With all the discussion I came across lately on burnt Shermans and their tracks, especially after seeing how the new Bronco Sherman tracks assemble, I was pleasantly surprised to find this set waiting for me.


The package contains separate sprues for the track pads and end connectors in a long thick clear plastic bag to which a double printed heavy paper header is stapled on.  The double printing is because the inside of the header serves as an instruction sheet, a carry over from the RHPS header.  Even the logo is identical with only the brand name and contact information being separate.

The header is a slightly different color, see photo one where the new set is on the right.  Also, it is marked as M4 revised.
