Hm. Sounds like another typical Dragon mix n match - or should I say mix and unmatch - kit. So, for roughly twenty bucks more than the earlier 6262 release we get:

- instructions from three different kits that were cut and pasted by a four year old

- no turned barrel, smaller PE fret and decal sheet

- no clear parts

- DS tracks instead of Magic Tracks

To have to add plastic stock and fill gaps due to sheer laziness is unacceptable for a kit that purpots to be 2015 technology. Pretty lame.

Still have the Magic Tracks, but pretty much everything else is true. Disappointing.

Wow! Surprising. I wonder if that goes for all their Panzer II's..

I just picked up 6262 for $26. It has it's issues too, but less so. I am not too worried about the extra sprocket tooth and such.

Ha ha! Sure. or do what I did and search for their older release. Amazon had both - 6262 for $26.95 and this um.."new" one for $59.99 plus $14 shipping lol.
