Hi all, I'm not big into Armour, don't know my tanks well so would like some advise and what you think to this idea. Firstly, I would like an R/C Tiger tank, on a budget, I know this does not bode well, but hear me out.... The R/C is not to go blasting everywhere but more as a novelty (it will sit in my display case most of the time), the Tiger has to look like a Tiger (so long as it looks OK, it does not have to be rivit correct), It HAS to be a Tiger, early or mid. King etc is no good, it's an Tiger early or mid or nothing. But most importantly I do not have an endless budget, less than £200 is my total budget. Soooo, my thoughts.... Purchase a Heng Long Pro Tiger 1 (with the metal tracks), more for sturdiness, then purchase a Taigen Tiger 1 upper hull. Add or rework any areas that I can, add a few scratch built bits Re-Spray the whole thing. Total purchase price will be in the order of... £109 for the Tiger £59.49 for the upper works. What are your thoughts? Can I make a decent looking Tiger out of this? As I say it is novelty factor for the R/c so it's not the biggest part of the project so the fact it is not scale speed etc is no matter, not that the gears clank etc etc.
Hi folks, I haven't seen anything about this here, but it appears from TamiyaBlog that a 1/16 scale RC type 10 was shown at Tamiya Fair this weekend: http://tamiyablog.com/2014/11/first-photos-from-tamiya-fair-2014-new-releases-and-events/ A previous entry suggests this will also be a static kit. Looks nice! Will
Hi folks, This was a build I did for my mother-in-law who always wanted a purple VW but never had the chance to own one... The kit was ok but I found the quality of some of the mouldings very poor. There was lots of repair work done to one of the doors (no pictures as I was not totally happy with it) and the fit of some of the key pieces was off but overall, a very fun project. First time trying to paint Gloss finish on a kit as well - Enjoy. And just a few pictures of the build: one of the many many coats of Purple used to build colour depth.
