Really can't see an easy way to replace  track on  already built kits ( liquid glue / super glue / lots a glue  ::) ) , not to  mention trying to match  paint , weathering and ground effects  ( dirt / mud / scatter ) on the tracks . But this will be great on any new kits I build . I wonder how long before we see these in the stores ?
Unless you used Revell glue ^__^.

I agree this would be for new kits.

I was thinking about making a Revell comment, but thought better of it! After the abuse I got on the Facebook page.

 I look forward to seeing the resin tracks, they look great. My only concern is that such long & thin components in resin can quite easily become distorted, whether from de-molding too early (before the curing's complete) or prolonged pressure in packaging - obviously you need these components to fit precisely. That said, I don't doubt that Rubicon have taken that into account & have considered ways of minimising the problem.
 Funnily enough, the first Rubicon model I bought/made (a Panther G) was glued together with Contacta & so far it's still in one piece - though that could be as much to do with the layers of paint & varnish.

I think Rubicon's resin tracks will be well cast.

Having seen their resin kits today, I don’t think you need to worry about casting.
