Hi all! I am a new member in the Milwaukee, Chicago region.
I am working on a tv pilot with W.W.Vought, the writer of the movie
"When Trumpets Fade". We are looking to enlist RC Tankers in our
area to be involved with the pilot and perhaps more episodes if the pilot
Gets picked up. If you have an interest please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for WW II vehicles and for the pilot,
We would need a tiger I as a primary. Please only serious responses. We would
Love to hear from everyone or answere questions, but this would not
Be the right time. I will post more once we get closer to filming.
Well I jumped into the whole RC Tank biz kind of head first. I purchased an HL Snow Leopard and while its expected to arrive tomorrow I decided to go ahead and get the HL Tiger 1 with metal tracks, wheels, and gears. I plan on detailing both tanks starting with the Tiger while I play around with the Snow Leopard. While researching parts and accessories I noticed that there are little to no other military vehicles (models or RC's) that are in the 1/14 or 1/16 scale. I thought it would be cool to have a tank hauler that looked like it was from the WWII era and maybe a Deuce and Half truck. I found this site (GardenTrucking) which sells a great variety of trucks and trailers but nothing looks like it comes from the same era as the two tanks. Additionally I don't even know if they had tank haulers back in the 40's. I thought about ordering just a truck chassis and then finding a plastic model in the same scale to fit onto the chassis but have kind of come up empty. Do or have you guys any experience with other military vehicles that are in or close to the same scale as these 1/16 tanks?
Thanks in advance!
