  2. Congrats on the purchase. I found my Tamy Pershing to be one of my best runners and also a favourite 'go-to' IR battler. To my knowledge the Tamiya MF03 does not allow additional/auxiliary LEDS to be fitted to it - which is a shame really.
  3. Hi Winalot, Welcome to the forum. Great to have you onboard. That's interesting about the StuG hatch. Mine opens up but mine is also quite old. Perhaps Heng Long have changed it for newer versions. Would love to see a pic of the MG. You can post pics by dragging them straight into the section underneath where you type your post or you can click on the 'choose files' option there also to browse your device/PC/Mac etc... I have included a pic of it below. I hope that helps.
  4. Hi, I’m  British, but living in France. Always had an interest in all subjects military, especially WWII and Nelsons navy.i was once priveledged to have a private tour of Bovingdon, and was able to climb around all of the tanks at leisure. 

    My Father was a Polish conscript in the Wermacht, and fought in Russia with the Panzer Grenadiers until wounded( not fatally)When he returned to Germany he became a Sturmgeschütz III driver until captured near Remargen.

    All the rest is boring stuff, I just got into RC tanks and enjoying the research as much as the models

  5. Hi I have recently purchased a Heng Long Stug III, but was dissapointed to find, A. The Loaders hatch does not open, despite pics on the Internet, and even on the packaging. B. The mg flashes from the drivers visor! Looks stupid. I took the top off, which is dead easy on this model, only 5 or 6 screws, and I found it was possible to remove the led, and feed in into the gun mantlet. I drilled a hole Approx 3mm in the location where the coaxial gun( when Fitted) was mounted. It is tight but with a piece of thin string taped to the led i was able to route it to the front of the mantlet
  6. Hi i am new to this forum, having just purchased my first Tamiya 1:16 tank, the Pershing M26. i am very pleased so far. I notice that there is a hole in the main gun mantlet for the coaxial MG. Is it possible to fit a second LED in this hole to show the flash through. I’m sure it’s physically possible but I’m not sure whether I can couple another LED with the existing one. has anyone done this before. I an get another led on line but I don’t want to damage the pcb. Regards winalot
  7. This was in the news over the weekend - looks awesome. Here is the article: https://www.armyrecognition.com/defense_news_july_2020_global_security_army_industry/rheinmettall_unveils_new_leopard_tank_mbt_with_130mm_cannon.html
  8. Hi Dylan, Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to seeing some pics of the E-100 - not an RC tank you see very often.

  15. Hi Kevin, Welcome. I had a tamiya sherman at one stage - i kinda regret selling it actually It was a good runner.
  16. Hi Gary, I have seen you guys on FB. Nice to see you here. Hope to see some pics of the club meets.
  17. My name is Kevin and I've been into radio control for over 30 yrs, had everything but never a boat lol I've flown crashed raced and bashed, I've always wanted to get tanks but they were out of my price range. I now have three, One (early) Tamiya Shermen, a Bulldog which is a project tank, and a Jagdtiger. I'm still learning the tank stuff but its a part of this hobby! maybe I can help someone here but will be learning from here also!

  19. IMO - the Heng Long 6.0 board is comparable to the Taigen system these days and a little cheaper by my research - so my money would probs be on 6.0 There are better systems on the market than either of them, but then you start to pay a lot more as well (ie ElMod, IBU, Clark etc.).
  20. Hi Panzer Red, Welcome aboard. Taigen have some cool versions of the Tiger I. What paint scheme came on your metal Tiger I?
  21. Hi Steven, Welcome aboard. Looking forward to seeing some pics. Someone with your experience would have gathered some modelling wisdom over the years. I am also a German armour fan. Love the King Tiger.
  22. Hi Wayne, The original electrics package in the old Hooben T55 was made by SGS I believe. Not sure if they are still around, though a quick Google search shows me that some German sites are still selling their boards and stuff. The T55 board Clark sells will do the job fine. You may need to fiddle with the connections and wiring as it will differ from the SGS set up. Good luck and post up a few piccies if ya get around to it
  23. Hi everyone, I got a T55. It is one of the original release ones that i bought from a friend of a friend. I have done some research and discovered that the newer ones have different electrics in them - Clark i think. I am not sure what mine has in it - definitely NOT Clark. Can anyone tell me if the Clark T55 from their site is the same as the Hooben T55 board that comes with the tanks? Surely it would be. Clarks T55 is cheaper than Hoobens T55 control board Cheers Wayne
