  4. Hi Matt, Welcome to RC Tank World. What radio and receiver did you purchase? Is it just a matter of the channel cables from the DMD do not fit into the receiver you have purchased (ie: the plugs on the channel cables have little tabs on the side that do not fit into the receiver? The Tamiya DMD channel cables have the 'Futaba J style' connectors with a little tab on the side (see pic), because the radios Tamiya use to sell for these Full Option kits are Futaba branded. If your receiver is a Universal/JR type (without the tabs on the side) then the DMD channel
  5. Hi everyone, I have an old Tamiya 1/16th scale RC Sherman Tank that I bought in 2004 and didn't build until this year. Unfortunately, I didn't buy the transmitter and receiver when I bought the model. I ordered a 4 channel transmitter and receiver from a hobby shop and now that it's in, they say it's not compatible with the DMD control unit and MF-02 unit. Specifically, the connectors from the unit to the receiver are not compatible. Will this be true of any new 4 channel transmitter and receiver I buy or did we not choose the correct one? Any help would be appreciated. I am new t
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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

  9. 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
  10. 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
