Well thats a total clusterfuck ! Just bought 6253 box art as above. Its a different kit ! No Magic track, turned barrel. barrel, shackles and all the good stuff. Tracks replaced with DS rubber bands ! Even the periscope plastic is solid. If your going to decimate the parts Dragon at least give it a new part number. I think I've just been screwed and it don't feel good.

Gavin, I think you have every right to whine about this. The main problem is that Dragon is stealthily changing the kit contents. So if you knew about a great kit with a lot of extras chances are if you find it now it might no longer be that great kit with lots of extras. And this for me is a very dishonest practice.
If Dragon wants to use DS tracks and cut down on their production costs then they should issue new kit numbers.
And as far as the DS vs Magic Tracks conversation is concerned, well, that's a matter of taste. I for one don't like vinyl or vinyl-like tracks. Sure, some of them can be well-done but in my opinion the separate link tracks are superior in detail and in how they sit over the sprocket. Not to mention that is easier to control the sag.
Also, Dragon managed to blunder some of their kits with DS tracks as some of them are too short or too long or in some case they are even of the wrong type (they provided the wrong track width in one kit compared with the sprocket teeth size resulting in making almost impossible to fit the track).

Just a quick comment - changing the contents inside and not the box is not only a Dragon trick! Trumpeter pulled a similar one with their 1:72 'S' Tank a few years back - the 'simple' version of the kit started to appear in the first version (higher parts count) style boxes. The importer was at a loss when I raised it with them. Caveat emptor indeed!

I saw this kit today in the store and wanted to buy it when I realized that something is not right.. date on the box says 2005 but it has DS tracks. I don't mind DS tracks but was wonder what about other goodies. It's shame that they are not there and this missleading box and date :/
