  6. Esteemed Mr Edelweiss, very happy to see you along here.
  7. G'day Mr Baz, thanks for getting on board
  8. i can vouch for the newer HL style ones. I have a few now and they all work great on my TK6 and 7 tanks
  9. CENTURION Yes please. I really hope this one takes off. Will probably get a Tamiya one, but would love a cheaper option as well to model several versions
  10. I love German Shepards. WOuld love to see a pic. I have had several over the years and was thinking of another one this year sometime when i get my fences fixed
  11. Hi Baz, Welcome to the forum.
  12. WOW A merkava would nice. My experience with Hooben is a bit like your experience with HL debadge. It hasn't been great. Not sure what HL you got debadge but my recent HLs (all version 6 or 7) have been good. I understand the older ones were definitely hit and miss though. It will be interesting to see if HL or Taigen make one. Tamiya have had the Sheridan out for a while now and i don't see HL or Taigen rushing to produce one.
  13. .. hmmm . i know nothing about hooben... but i got to honest i have 3 heng longs and one of them was a total nightmare. i'll cross my fingers and pray for taigen to make ine.. i am gun shy now with the heng longs.
  14. there is a guy in the U.S. wit one, and from his write ups, its not worth worrying about. Wait for the H/L to come out.
  15. has anyone actually seen the hooben merkava tank yet.. i mean not on the internet. in a store.. i have been looking in the states and havn't had any luck finding one, with biden over here screwing everything up, i am very reluctant to order one from overseas
  16. i tell you herman, i don't know much about discharge pressure and that kind of thing but i do know when it was all over it was not pretty. i like the glow plug idea to get it going. the fact i am a very stubborn yanks means i can't just drop this yet. i saw a guy on youtube had one and it worked perfectly... either that or he edited the video. if i can find another cheap used tank, prefferable a sherman i think might work best, then i will give it a 3rd try .. after the 3 time is supposed to be the charm.
  17. herman gave good advice.. i did see a v 6.1 board kit with transmitter on ebay for about 50 us dollars. i don't know where your from so you might be able to find a better deal. good luck with the update
  18. Depending on whats available will dictate what is required to make the change successful. The later H/L offerings are much easier to get working than the older 2.4G stuff. I suggest a 6.1s board, with a transmitter and wiring kit. Then you can change it over with the least amount of hassle. Also, once you have the V6 transmitter, many tanks can be paired to that transmitter if required. However, V7 boards will not be compatible with V6 transmitters(which is no loss unless its a modern tank) a 6.1s can operate the old elevation and rotation components, as well as support servo operation if
  19. Hello all, Novice tanker here. I'm looking to upgrade my old tauchpanzer from 27mhz to the 2.4. Is it as simple as buying those pieces and plug/play? Any advice or suggestions is appreciated.
  20. i saw some russian . war slogans .. they were waterslide decals.. .. i looked for stencils my self i got those on ebay as well but they were german.. try searching custom decals and the scale your looking for. you could also check etsy.com there are alot of custom waterslide decal makers on there.. you just send then a .jpg file of what you want.. .. if you want white numbers they have to use a special waterslide decal paper for white. very good custom stuff on etsy.... i am sure there are stencil makers as well .. if your going to get a stencil made all you need is the size of the numb
  21. Anyone know of a good place to get Russian tank marking/numbering stencils at all ? They seem rare. Some options for decals, but nothing that I can find for 16th scale stencils.
  22. Im not a modern tank fan, but these are quite iconic. I imagine in a short time one of the mass production houses will also make one. I know Haya has been working on his for a long time already. Plenty of scope for model builders to get something different. Cost of the typical Tamy will be a limiting factor for many though I expect/.
  23. I also experimented with a similar method. An aquarium pump though. I tried an rc car glow plug to ignite the propellant each time, to varying success. I suspect that your system had constant discharge pressure for the first tank, then somehow on the second, the ignited fuel remained ignited after the pressure dropped, perhaps allowing the supply path to be tracked back to the tank by burning fuel. Resulting in the Boom. I never progressed, but some sort of one direction shut off valve should be installed in the system to prevent "back-burn" once the flow of fuel has been turned off.
  24. It's official SIGN ME UP Listed on Tamiya/Japan here: https://www.tamiya.com/japan/products/56044/index.html?fbclid=IwAR07vT1gBt3qcm3PhmgQUG49XnOv7Jrahohn2hZwWIR7mwEooe6J1arqmq0 ...and on the Tamiya Blog here: https://tamiyablog.com/2021/11/full-details-of-upcoming-tamiya-56044-1-16-rc-british-battle-tank-centurion-mk-iii-full-option-complete-kit/
  25. a few months back i mentioned trying to make a flame thrower tank like the one i saw on you tube... the first attempt did not go well.. well i bought a real cheap older heng long on ebay. my friend had a very tiny battery powered pump . the kind that is in a syphen, you know like to take jerosene our of a can and put it in the heater.. we removed the larger hose off the syphen and put a smaller nossel on it and small hose .. like in a aquarium air pump we tested it and it shot alot farther that i ever thought.. drilled a snall hole in the lower hull.. we decided we would use the need
  26. That sure does have a lot going on. Very creative.
  27. love it. These Assault guns are a real statement of brute force.
