Upper portion of the tracks are see! But "second thoughting" the matter,
it would still work if you decide to install the canvas track covers or
the track grousers.

Right! not important, the Whippets tracks were supported on every point
of their top run.

For those who are unaware the MAFVA (Miniature Armed Forces Vehicle
Assoc.) is a non profit org. working out of England. They publish a
bi-monthly newsletter called "Tankette". Kit reviews, tank markings,
vehicle details, and !scale drawings! can be found here. They do cover
the WWI period fairly well. Don't have their address right now but could
post it if anyone wants it.

Another similar publication is "AFV News" by George Bradford operating
out of Canada. It's featured on the Internet. Check this site out:
