  • A small simple project I have had in the works for a while and finally had time to “throw” together. USMC Sherman in WW2 Pacific theater inspired theme. Yes there were a fair number of Sherman’s that had “wood armor” added to them in an effort to combat the threat of magnetic mines.

    The tank has been modified to now have metal servo recoil and elevation, Mato tracks and sprockets, upgraded gearboxes and a few other small things not really worth mentioning.

    • Rubicon99 Great looking modification. I am currently modding a FlightLine 1600 mm Corsair from VMF-114 stationed at Peleliu 1943-5. Point is, I have seen many similar tanks while doing my research. Bravo Zulu, Sir. Best. LB

            • Looks better in the dirt than in the shop! Very cool ride from my early 80’s Army days in Korea! This M-60 has moved to the front of my short list of upcoming buys! Are there many options and upgrades available? Can you share a link to where you got it? Thanks in advance! Ken!

                Upgrades for this one aren't out yet, but metal upgrades are supposedly coming after the Chinese New Year.

                • Another T34 made it into my HL tank fleet.

                  Ran it in the appropriate weather conditions.

                    It must be a battle scared T-34/85. It lost all the small parts and gas drums. The T-34 has the best paint job among my HL's as is. It is lighter than most HL too. I added 2 pounds of lead to make it run better on rough ground.

                    • Red 390s in a T34 is just fun overkill 👍👍. I am sure like mine that thing flys. Good thing you have the added weight. After a while though I swapped all of mine back to 380s. Needed the slower scale speeds and slightly reduced handling for IR battles. 390s actually were a handicap more then of a value in battling with the T34.

                      But for backyard fun and smiles 390s rule the day in the T34.

                      • From the Jan. 22, 2023 San Diego tank clubs IR battle day. It was the first battle day for my Pacific Theater themed Sherman and where it earned its war name. After scoring five consecutive victories without being knock out, it was given the war name “Ace N a Day”. Its NOT easy to score two or more consecutive victories against experienced player like were present. Was it just LUCK, probably, but here is to keeping my fingers crossed “Ace N a Day” can keep up the great start to her career.

                          My Heng Xin gearbox came with the Red390 and I just left them in. I have on my bench both Tamiya380 and Taigen Black380 if I want to change. But you are right, for backyard fun, the 390 is ok too.

                          BTW, the Heng Xin gearbox does not fit the T34. I have to grid off a piece of the gearbox case and some tank wall thickness to fit it. NOT recommended for anyone.

                          • I thought this would be a good introduction. Here’s my first tank and first time taking pics so bear with me. A Taigen, metal, BB Early Tiger I. Just the first that started the snowball:
