Do you have a date? The Sturmtiger will be popular. I know several who have been looking high and low for one, including myself.

Sounds good....you should really put some actual pics of the tanks(inside/out) from several anglesand describeEXACTLY what comes with each tank as far as options(aluminum chassis/rubber tires/etc), maybe even put a complete list next to each tank...me and a few other guys have asked you to do this on your website a couple times nowand you never do, all you post is some pics youobviously got from Taigen...gonna be tougher to sell them unless you do that(Anybody can build a cool website if given some good pics)....There is a lot of disparity between Taigen models as to the actual "options" you actually get with each tank, which has never really been clarified by anybody in the know. Personally I think they are a good value if you know which ones to get (the ones with aluminum chassis/torsion bar suspensions). You could even do reviews,comparisons,complete break-downs....maybe even have a little Taigen owners forum..A pic or two of some of your actual stock would go along way as well since most of us have been burned in the past by supposed suppliers who didn't carry squat and merely ordered from another supplierlike we could have or should have done in the first place.Itwould also benice to watch a you-tube vid or see some pics of a NIBopening so we can see exactly what we would be getting....just my 2 cents.....

Is it me, or are the tracks on the Stug just Tiger tracks instead of Ostketten?

Looks almost like a cross between Ostketten and Winterketten. Be nice to see some more photos....hint hint.

I've been thinking about getting a Taigen Stug from him, but since he never post any pics or detailed info on his tanks I will remain hesitant until I know more....he really needs to get out there and talk to the tankers and give us the info we need if he wants any sales..a few pretty pics and a phone number just aren't going to cut it.....:eek:

These are what I always understood to be ostketten.

That's Winterketten. OstKetten looks like this.

Good to know, I thought the term was basically interchangeable, thanks! [8D]

Winterketten

Winterketten were developed in 1942 for use in winter conditions on the Eastern Front. These were basically a normal track with track extensions that protruded from the ends of the tracks. These are recognizable by the long triangular extensions. These were usually found on the PzKpfw III, PzKpfw IV and StuG III but could also be seen on Hummel, Hornisse and other vehicles.

Ostketten

Ostketten were developed in 1944 for use in the muddy conditions in the Spring and Autumn on the Eastern Front, the Rasputitsa. These were basically a wider track than the usual track which was fitted. There were no triangular extensions, just a wider track. These were for use usually on the PzKpfw IV and StuG III but could also be found on other vehicles. When seen on the PzKpfw IV it looks like a PzKpfw V Panther track on a PzKpfw IV.

Hey IMEX, What about IR M26,M41, and Panzer IV F1? If you are going to rehash these tanks at least make each model with IR. Just my 2 cents.

Glen B 02-23-2013 01:21 PM

RE: IMEX TAIGEN TO DISTRIBUTE NEW TORRO TANKS
 
I see on the link that the various tanks carry the HC designation.

I understood HC refered to a tank with a quick detachable upper hull.

I have only seen that on the Tiger I's, do the others with the HC designation also have quick detachable upper hulles?<br type="_moz" />

MODELMAN2 02-23-2013 02:22 PM

RE: IMEX TAIGEN TO DISTRIBUTE NEW TORRO TANKS
 
The M41 will be IR by the summer..2013.....Its on the top of our list to do ......Every Tank will be IR evenually as well as airsoft...{but dont hold me to a time table on that } Thanks IMEX

MODELMAN2 02-23-2013 02:30 PM

RE: IMEX TAIGEN TO DISTRIBUTE NEW TORRO TANKS
 
Only the TIGER 1 has the Quick Release upper Hulles.......More Quick Release Tanks are in Planning.. [Dont ask me what or when ...as we will only let you know when tooling is well under way.} Thanks IMEX

Whoo Hoo !! a new PAN-TIGER, ... it look's to be a late war, version two Pan-Tiger, the paint scheme looks is a little off but it will do just fine!.
I hope they do a North African Pan-Tiger next. Thanks IMEX

Yeah, I think it is refreshing to see a an alternative to the usual "Kursk" Pantigers we are used to seeing.
