  3. G'day folks, looking for a supply of 3mm wide x .5mm thick or close to it brass strip material, usually available from good hobby outlets, but seems they only stock larger sizes, way too wide for tool racks & track bars on German tanks. Anyone have a heads up on finding any in Aus ? Cheers

  8. I LIKE THE V3 SOUND ON THE TAIGENS MY TIGER1 HAS IT AND IT IS LOUD, THE TAIGENS ARE HEAVY BUT THEY ALL HAVE GOOD MOTORS.
  9. Yeah heng long are also releasing a Merkava.. hooben are ok. Their 1st release elefant and T55 were shit but they are a lot better now and from what I have heard their Cromwell is pretty good ...
  10. i bought a heng long tiger 1 almost a year ago .. when i bought it it was the cheapo plastic grey tank.. i upgrade the tracks sprockets idler. that went well. but after being inside it i noticed that i thought the wire was way to thin. to make a long story short, i started to have problems, first it was gun elevation motor, then it was my barrel recoil... so i got my temper up and decided to just replace everything inside the turret that had a wire on it . i did all that , then once again my main gun elevation motor would not work... now i was pissed.. i was about to

  17. HI JOHN WELCOME TO PARADISE

  18. AFTER 3 MONTHS MY HL TIGER1 EARLY, IS BACK RUNNING. I REPLACED EVERYTHING INSIDE THE TURRET SHOOTER,BARREL ELEVATION IR EMITTER... ALL BECAUSE THE WIRE WAS SO TINY AND THIN.... .... I KNOW I DON'T HAVE NO PICS . BUT AFTER ALL THIS TIME I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE RIGHT AGAIN. NOTHING LIKE A VERY MINOR LIFE VICTORY TO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A KING. ITS FUNNY NOW BUT AT ONE POINT I THOUGHT ABOUT TAKING IT OUT AND BLASTING IT WITH MY AR 15... NOW I AM GOING TO HAVE A NICE GLASS OF KENTUCKY BOURBON AND ENJOY MY MINOR VICTORY.
  19. Hey Prof, welcome! Your holiday description immediately draws to mind the first description I read of the the Great Lakes in Robert Manry's book 'Tinkerbelle'. I received three compilation books for a teenage birthday - one each for air, land and sea warfare. The air book had Paul Brickhill's 'Reach for the Sky', and the sea book had Tinkerbelle, Malta Convoy and Unbroken. Not being a military story, it wasn't until I was bored one day that I read Tinkerbelle. However it was a great story of an ordinary Dad learning to sail on Lake Erie and eventually sailing solo across the Atlant
