Birthday present for myself! Naturally the Tamiya 1/16 kit would be more desirable, but it's 6X the price! Hope to modify it and repaint as a Canadian 2A6. Have to get some batteries now...

Cool. I bet it will be loads of fun in the back yard......

I have been wanting to get one of the RC 1/16 HL Tiger or Panther tanks myself.

Let us know how it goes........quality and such.

Is it a scaled up Tamiya Jim? How is the fine detail looking?

Hey Graeme - I think it's a copy of the 1/16 Tamiya jobby. Pretty much fully assembled with all electronics included. Got it here . Can also get metal upgrades for it (tracks, gears, etc). Detail is actually pretty good - I'll take some better close-ups soon.

The company pretty much copies the Tamiya kits. I have their Tiger 1 and Tamiya's Tiger 1, they have the same injection marks, and mounting plates for the engine inside.........

Now go and get yer metal upgrades......
