    Essentially done. Too clean, like just after depot maintenance. This is what I've done so far:

    Tongde M60A3 metal version with metal tracks replaced with plastic ones for smoother and quieter running..
    Heng Long 7.1 main board, to access additional features and smoother control.
    NATO camo scheme repainted with Tamiya lacquer and acrylics
    ​Amber NATO Beacon, switchable through CN5 wifi circuit.
    JVM barrel recoil.
    Increased barrel elevation and depression.
    ​Yellow muzzle flash LED.
    Servo animated commander's cupola, switchable through CN11 smoke heater circuit.
    Upgraded IR LED.
    Five pin socket on cupola for LegoDEI IR receiver.
    Tail lights reconfigured as brake lights.

    My next step will be weathering and the addition of a JVM M60 spotlight. The supplied decals are pretty accurate. They are a direct copy of Tamiya's 1/35 model, and photos of real M60's in Germany

    Looking good. It's cool how you caught the IR bulb in the gunners sight "lightning up" in the second photo.
