  1. Hi guys, Well this little project has been on my ‘to-do’ list for a while now and i have finally found the motivation to get stuck into it This Gepard previously belonged to an old customer of mine that sadly passed away at the end of last year. I hope to restore it to its former glory and give it the full RC treatment (not just forward reverse - with no sound). Here is the Geppy before i got stuck into it. i also have a second Geppy that i may use for parts if needed (hopefully not) ….and the original internals including older gearbox.
  2. So here's some news that has been doing the rounds on FB. This pic is from the TamiyaBlog site and shows the latest 1/16 RC Tank Full Option kit release from Tamiya - the M551 Sheridan - kit number 56043 As usual there will be a ton more pics after the 2019 Nuremberg Toy Fair in early FEB. Thoughts???
  3. Firstly, i decided to build a new lower hull from my parts collection. Nothing really exciting here, just your standard Tamiya lower hull build from the reissue static Leopard/Gepard kits. In that last pic you can see the gearbox adapter plate. The old gearbox will not be going into this new hull. I have used a Tamiya King Tiger gearbox with the adapter plate. I will be re-using the road wheels from the original lower hull. The rubber has degraded severely though so fresh rubber all round.
  4. Tamiya have discontinued the 1/16 Jagdpanther kit. https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio-control-kits-30/1-16-radio-control-tank-series-33000/rc-german-jagdpanther-56024 Very sad as the JP was a great tank to run around. Snap one up now if ya can. Original link is now dead in the water: Here is the link to the discontinued kit: https://www.tamiyausa.com/shop/116-tank/rc-german-jagdpanther/
  5. Looks like Taigen are releasing their own version of the JS-2 and Leopard 2A6. Here is the link taken from RCU. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-tanks-369/11643908-javascript-2-taigen-release-2018-a.html
  6. Version 1.0.0

  8. Erik from Imex Model has given us a sneak peak at the new Taigen metal lower chassis/hull for the Heng Long Leopard 2A6 over on RCU. Here are a couple of pics - the entire thread can be found on RCU here
