    Dragon 1/6 RC jeep conversion




    Recently I have been working on an RC conversion for the Dragon 1/6 Jeep, this is its first test run so is early on in development there have been a few changes made along the way with a few more to do.
    First test film.

    That's very cool Mark! That has to be a very large Jeep in 1/6!!

    Got any suggestions to RC the Tamiya static Kubel in 1/16? I have no gear and just the static kit.

    Thanks for the interest chaps.
    Karel, a Pershing would have to be a full scratch build though I do have an idea what it will be painted like when completed.
    Panther, the only thing I could suggest is looking at some RC cars in a similar scale the main thing you want it the width wheel to wheel the length can always be altered to suit that or try and find an RC Kubel, I know they are rare and expensive when they do turn up.
    Pershing, the MP44 is full scale though it’s not real it’s an airsoft replica and hard to find.

    Thanks, that's what I thought. I also need to find the REAL cross county tires/wheels for the Eduard Schwimmwagen.

    I don't think the resin ones I have will stand up to RCing.

    Jeff, unfortunately there are no 1/16 wheels for the Schwimmwagen not the cross country type these are not even available in 1/6 and they just don’t look right with the standard width wheels and tyres

    You're misunderstanding me. I have RUBBER tires for ALL the kits. I am just wanting the different tread pattern as shown in the above supplied photo. If you have seen them up close (like I have) you'll agree the directional v-patterned tread looks better on the Schwimmwagens than the skinny tires do. I only mentioned the resin tires I have because I purchased them before I wanted to RC it.

    So, thanks for caring and please sell one of your kits to Herman. The man needs a Schwimmwagen badly!!
