Thank you Kremlin :) I enjoyed building the Leopard 1, since everyone tend to build the Abrams, Leopard 2 or Tiger. Its nice to have something different.

Absolutely marvelous craftsmanship =D> Especially the way the tracks conform to obstacles.
Hope to see some more of your work in the future! :smt023


The JR X2610 in the background of the photo below, makes me a bit nervous though. I hope it is not the transmitter you are using for your tank.

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,
John

Thanks guys :smt023

I have already built it vlamgat :wink: but its a smaller model, also not RC, just a wire control model.


Out of curiosity, how does one rig up a wire control model?

Oh yes, it just has a small remote with 4 long thin wires connected to the tanks motors, you drive the tank by completing the circuit for each motor (each powering a track).

Here is a video of a scimitar light tank i built, also a wire control model :smt023
