    That is beautiful! I will have to check out LA tank club battle day. Most of my tanks are Taigen, so I am trying to get them converted to Tamiya Protocol. I should soon have three Tamiya tanks (one on the way), so I hope to be able to participate soon!

    • That storage box fits perfectly at the rear of the turret. Good idea

        We you can still come out and watch in the mean time. If you don’t have plans for Sat the 13th San Diego Tank club is having their Nov battle day. Starts around 10am and goes to around 1pm.

          • Field photos of my Russian themed “Firefly” during the San Diego Nov 2021 battle day. It still needs a few tweaks here and there.

            • I really like those track links hanging on both sides of the turret for more protection . Looks so cool!

                    • A couple pics from the only time I took the Merkava 4M out for a run. It was doing great till it lost a wheel....
                      Isnt this just an awesome looking tank. I plan to get a henglong one when they are released.
                      Moral of the story, more like a saga, dont ever buy a hooben. Though they are working with me for support. We will see if repair parts show up.

                        And are they they only company that made the Elefant and Cromwell? If that is true, I am quite sad :*(

                        • So far yes. Though if you want an Elephant talk to Jeff. He has one but it required new transmissions. You could also talk to Kenny Gaddis at DAK RC electronics. He recently rebuilt a newer one for a customer and worked the bugs out. I think somebody else is making a Cromwell too but dont quote me on it.

                          • A Heng Long Panther G with a specific camouflage scheme seen in March 1945 at a battle near Muncheberg, Germany. The tank has been modified to replace the airsoft function with a barrel flash LED and a top secret German laser aiming light in the mantlet. ;) Markings for that time are made by Peddinghaus Decals.

                            A short clip, to confirm it is a runner, not a shelf queen.
