Too bad the bracket for the idler wasn't secured differently. The screws take away from the looks.

As for the bogies, I guess there weren't a whole lot of options of making them functional and not look like other companies. I thought for sure they would have used an actual leaf spring setup like they do with their RC Trucks.

It looks like it will be a nice tank. Some of the plastic spurs look interesting. MAybe a guy can pick some up to help detail the Heng Long. I wonder how long it will be until the electronics for this are available separately. The electronics would work will inside a Heng Long PZ IV to give you proper sounds.

Another nice addition to the 1/16 tank world.

Just as I am going to order the Tamiya Pz4 last weekend, my wife tells me we need a new vacuum cleaner and I tell her I will take care of it and I will do the right thing.

And I would have ordered from the Texas boys, but well, if the FBI is watching you costume role playing guys, I didn't want them following the little Tamiya kraut tank package back to CA. As if hey would care, with all the other stuff going on in he world, but better safe than...

Question

How is Tamiya classifying the Panzer4 for the game?

It to be a Medium Tank with 5 hits?

Or Heavy Tank with 9 hits?

Anyone have one yet, what are the switch settings?

Regards,
