Fresh it came from Stellamodels!

At last, the armour collection is complete now

All the 1:16 tank's Tamiya made is represented now in the collection.

(ok ok, exept the King Tiger 56008 Porsche turret)

But the diffrence is to little name it to the 56004



If you thing the models of Tamiya these days have bad kitboxes?

Feast your box loving eyes on this then, a ├╝berbox!

This Tiger 1 tank was the big fear of allied tank crews during world war 2

Hopefully i could recreate this with the build.



As i have never seen a tiger build in real life, it was going to be a surprise for me to

This is the full option version, so this big pussy is making some noise :)



Build it close to box-art-stock, except colors who are 'russia theme' ( also discribed in the manual )

To be more precise, the one of PzReg2, summer of 1943

If not mistaken, this camo was used around Stalinggrad and Kursk

Only 2 modifications where done from 'box build'

Made some guide tubes on the lath for the tention roadwheels.

It is a cheap aftermarket product, but.. very easy to do yourself.

12mm outside, drilled out on 6mm then, 10mm long.

Make 2 of them, e voila, you have stabilisers for the rear wheels

Also only one battery pack is used, instead of the Tamiya advice on using 2

That is still from the 1200mha battery eara, now we have 3500mha + battery's!

This old system also reveals this is one of the older full option kits

Many items in the manual refer to older versions, static or non-mfu


For radio gear, i had good testing results with the Spektrum gear.

So, for this one also the Spektrum DX7 is used with AR6100 RX.

A dream solution, as you don't have to hide anymore wires or ugly antenna's!

< All hail to the technologic advance in rc >
