I don't know much regarding braille scale or German armor at that, but I do have an Eduard PE set for the Esci Pz IV G (I think?). Don't know why I have it, but I seem to think that it came with sprockets. I can check when I get home. I do know that my Eduard PE set for my 1/72 scale Sherman did come with sprockets.

A Polish? company called Part makes p/e tracks and other sets (including zimmerite) for the Panzer IV. Here's a link to one supplier,

I'm not aware of anyone making new sprockets or idlers though. Your using the Revell kt, right? Thats about as good as it gets in any scale
