Hello,
I recently purchased a Heng Long M26 Pershing . I wish to replace the .50 cal MG , Does anyone sell after market parts , like MG's , mounts , ammo boxes , spare track , etc for 1/16 scale armor ? Verlinden comes to mind , but I am unsure of the availabilty . Thanks in advance , and Happy Modelling !

If you are looking parts for your Heng Long Pershing, check out:
Tank Zone UK
They have everything you are looking for except the .50 MG.

I can PM you the spure number from the Tamiya one and you can order it from them.

Actually Tank Zone has the .50 if you take a look here and scroll down a bit http://www.tankzone.co.uk/cart/tz_m26.htm

Rather pricy though. - Verlinden makes one in resin, not sure its solid enough for RC use.

But heres the real treat, you can get the .50 frame from Tamiyas Sherman kit here: http://www.axels-modellbau-shop.de/katalog/de/Ersatzteile-fuer-RC-Panzer/Tamiya-Sherman/Spritzling-V-W-V1-V14-W1-W8-fuer-Tamiya-Sherman-56014-116::185.html

or this one where theres tools thrown in http://www.axels-modellbau-shop.de/katalog/de/Ersatzteile-fuer-RC-Panzer/Tamiya-Sherman/Spritzling-A-A1-A23-fuer-Tamiya-Sherman-56014-116::1071.html

Theres allso a lot of goodies here http://www.axels-modellbau-shop.de/katalog/index.php or here: http://www.imperial-modellbau.de/shop/index2.htm

Sorry for taking so long...

Here are the spruces that you need to order:
V and W

V has the actually M2 machine gun and W has the cradle.

Good luck,
Pat

The VW parts for Tamiya's Sherman or Pershing is a great M2 kit in itself. Only problem, no belted ammo.
