Has anyone come across any manufacturer yet? I need one for my Monster. Am I going to make it unreal or has sonmeone made them yet?

It definitely appears to be resin! Got plenty of the roadwheels. Gary, over on IDF-modeling, you were doing a IDF Priest. Did you ever get it finished? Would love to see the pictures.

Aaron,
That was the issue! To my knowledge, the resin sets I have seen have the dished roadwheels but the stamped Idlers. If the Buetepanzer has them, I should be golden!

According to what I found here on the forums, it seems very rare. I have seen them on some pictures. The only one I have a knowledge of is the IDF Sherman moving target tank and it only has it on it's right rear. The left rear has the stamped one.

Not resin at all, Jeremy gave you the source. It's not a matter of if the Buetepanzer has them, they're in the kit. They were not that rare post-war. They seemed to be used a lot on MAP M7B2s.
