Default New pictures coming Wednesday!

Hey everyone,
I will have some amazing pictures on Wednesday! I managed to score some good loot and I know you guys will be happy. I'll give you a few hints:
You haven't seen it before...
It is very popular...
It is quite big...
It isn't by us, but the upgraded parts will be from us including an upgraded lower and upper...
It is also a prototype, and as I know I'm the only one in the world with one

It took some hardcore talking to get one, even dinner. On another note I might have one more to show too. I understand the wait, my new ztz99 came in Saturday (I like the Chinese tanks, blame WOT for that) and I won't get to play with it til Tuesday. I promise it is worth it though....

Do we get a free one if we guess the tank correctly?

Default Trucks, please

I do love new tanks and would like some British armor, but most of all I would love some 1/16 RC trucks. Look at all the possible scenarios involving convoy ambushes, resupply, refueling, etc.. The battlefield would look much closer to real life. Oh, and a 1/16 jeep. That can not be hard with all the small RC trucks out there and the German Army loved their liberated jeeps. Just my two cents. jot

I would be insanely happy to see one of those beasts on the battlefield


Or a t29/t30, one of those would also be amazing

Hehe I doubt very much you'll see many prototype / paper panzers coming out of manufacturer's shops, that's a limited market within a limited market.

Trucks and armored cars in 1/16 though... not a bad idea. Especially if HL get's to building them. -$200 halftracks or armored cars, yes please.

I guess it's going to be a M3 halftrack. That would be sweet!

Personally, I really think we have enough tanks. It's just us 'veterans' or tankers that's been around for awhile always want new blood but I think there should really be more soft skinned vehicles to go along with the tanks. I know they cannot battle but let's face it... we're not just running our tanks to battle!

I do think a T-28 is far too complex for anyone else than Tamiya to tackle, but there's nothing wrong with some prototypes and paper panzers for a 'what-if' battle scenario.


It's just my opinion, so don't shoot the messenger! LOL

Hmmmm

You haven't seen it before...
It is very popular...
It is quite big...
It isn't by us

So hints? WWII, Modern? Fully tracked?

What we've seen, even if they haven't been delivered -

Famo
E-100
Maus
Elefant
T55
Everything In Tamiya's line
Everything in Bandai's line
Everything Heng Long's line
Wusan / Torro's line

So what's left that's big and popular, assuming 1/16 scale.

Something British or American. Most everything really popular that's WWII German and big has been done or we've at least seen it.
Most everything WWII Russian , popular and big has been done.

So perhaps modern....?

Well I know I won't be disappointed no matter what it is.

As long as it's not another re-pop! LOL

Wednesday seems a long long way away!

I am crossing my fingers for a T-55 or T-72 or T-90 or a Chally 2.

Most likely a Challenger( there was one on display at a Heng Long Booth). Although the comment about having the only prototype would seem to exclude this idea.

Would be very happy to have Taigen quality chassis under a Chally! I am currently saving for a Tamiya Leopard but those savings will be diverted to a Taigen Chally very quickly!
