Default Panzerwagen III

I recently got a 1/16 scale RC model of the Panzerkampgwagen (non-metal) but cannot take the top half off. The instructions show to poke with a screwdriver into two holes near the back but there seem to be no holes there? any advice on how to separate the two halves?

Can you post a photo of the tank? There should be nine screws on the bottom, but three are for the smoker and don't have to come out to get the top off. Shine a flashlight in the hole and see if you see a silver phillips head. But the best bet is to post a photo of the tank, including a shot of the bottom.

What Crius said, post a photo of the bottom and rear of the tank and we can give advice for taking it apart.

Undo these screws...

and if you drive the tank a lot all at once, the battery can get warm. The battery will also warm up while charging when it is nearly fully charged. Let it cool a bit before using it and it will last longer.
