    RE: 1/16 Panzer 38t - new kit!!

    Interesting. I have seen reviews of your NEW Kittyhawk F35 kits and it appears to be a Must Get kit for quarter scale collectors. Ironic that the previous Panda model company also did a 1/48 F35 about ten years ago.

    Do you have any pictures of your tracks? RC minds want to know!!! One of the DAK Club members has been trying to scratch build a 38T for five years!!!

    RE: 1/16 Panzer 38t - new kit!!

    the old Panda F-35 was of the prototype air craft.

    the old Panda company was bought out by Dragon. and shut down
    we are a completely new company
    about the Panzer 38t:
    the complete test shot is in the air to me now.
    hope to have a complete kit to show P 38t at the Richmond Va show

    Check out the T-28 link on the Axel's Modelbau page & you'll find some good references on how to convert this small kit to RC. Now there is some excellent modeling work to be seen with that scratch built T-28. [8D]

    I've been strictly a modifier of HL's, and I'm also a bit of a cheapskate, but if I was going to blow the wad on a tank this is it! And maybe a Matilda, too Panda?T he early war stuff is the coolest. So full of visceral rivets and design-by-eye good looks.

    Hey c'mon Rex. You'll probably buy two like me, just so we can pop the box top off and smell the plastic,
    and then sit back and say "I'll build that when..." !!

    HobbylinkJapan lists a May release date and price of $107. So certainly a reasonably priced kit. Add metal tracks wheels sprockets, gearbox, batteries, electronics, zimmerit?, crew, etc..

    If all else it'll look great as a static piece up against our RC vehicles.

    Welsh Dragon Models are advertising the Panda 1/16 38T in stock, they call it a static model, with photo etched parts and single link tracks, their selling it for £75 about $60, it is reduced from £90, so perhaps now is the time to get in your order?   shaun

    £75 is more like USD$115 not USD$60.

    I've had a review kit waiting for me for two weeks now, I just haven't been able to pick it up yet, so they should be in the States any time now.
    What, me worry?

    Interesting to see where this may be headed between this release from Panda & the new Takom FT due out next month. They remind me of an early Trumpeter or Dragon, & from the response I got from Takom's customer service staff regarding the FT & other projects that are underway, seem very focused in their approach unlike some others we know.

    RE: 1/16 Panzer 38t - new kit!!

    I had the chance to touch and examine the Panda 38t kit a couple of weeks ago.

    The kit is a beautiful static kit, very nice details, multiple version decals, metal barrel (not drilled, though), a lot of PE parts. For the price it is a bargain.
    The tracks are a bit odd: single links but connecting pins are not pass-through type, i.e. just two very short plastic half-pins connect the ends of each track with the next.
    The tracks are not already drilled to allow insertion of a metal pin, altough that is possible, with a lot of patience and meditation about the world and life in general.
    The plastic of the tracks is another possible issue: for indoor use it should be strong enough, but for outdoor use I doubt it: the drilled ends will be too fragile, imho.
    The hull plastic is a bit soft and the assembled hull will probably require some metal stiffeniing.
    The room inside is scarce, as one might imagine. The standard HL gearboxes wont' fit.
    I have suggested my friend (the owner of the kit) to order some VStank 1/24 gearboxes which seem to be compact enough to fit.
    The turret need either a turret ring (you have to do it yourself) or better to be mounted directly on top of a modified servo.
    Gun recoil is possible only by a servo.
    Battery needs to be lipo-type for compactness.
    Electronics....you will beed a compact unit, even though an RX18 should fit.

    In conclusion: RC'ing it is possible and you don't not really need much to thinker about it, but there is a lot of work to do.

    Excellent review of the kit, Borealis. Many thanks. Good to know that it is a possibility with work.

    I've seen some pretty remarkable RC'ing of small tow tractors, etc. by Bubbajoex. If your listening here Bubba, this kit is calling out for your touch

    Mike.!
