Default Asiatam Lower Hulls?

Does anyone know if and or what future release's asiatam has in store for their lower hulls? I know they have the KT lower now which is really nice. But I am hoping for a Panther release, even though I don't own a Panther lol, future project I promise. If not I guess I could just source Tamiya parts and build the lower. With using either the SLU or Dan's masterpiece, in a Tamiya or Asiatam lower would make a nice tank and pretty cost effective also.

Cheers,
Wade

Yes Wade, the panther and the panzer VI would be a + to the hobby.

A lower Hull for the panther / JP would be great. I have asked Domeniq at RC tank.de several times about that hull , but the answer is as allways , I don't know ore I don't think they will do it. Not sure why. Don't those models sell good enough ?

Both the panther and the Panzer IV look to be easily made and to produce. and I would think that both tanks are good sellers. I don't see why he has not yet produced them yet. so with that all that we can ask of you since you know and speak with him in person is to keep bugging Domeniq and maybe he will change his answer and build them for us tankers. Thanks Sollie

Panther makes sense since it used a torsion bar suspension in real life.  The PzIV used leaf springs; so, I'm not sure that we gain anything other than stiffness with a metal hull.  And that stiffness can be gained with styrene reinforcement.

Would love to see metal hulls for the Bulldog, Pershing and Panther...

Sure, I'll be all over him. Not sure he produce anything himself though.

I have had a thing about MK 1Vs for more years than I care to think of, When I saw the ASIATAM MK 111 hull like a fool I assumed that as 1V followed 111 my wish would be soon fulfilled, I am going to have to do something about these rose tinted spectacles I keep tripping over my boot laces. Where do you go to show there is a demand for a 1/16 scale Panzer 1V metal hull?

I love my Asiatam lower hull for HL Panzer III. It's fantastic. I wouldn't run a HL in RC combat without this upgrade. I highly recommend it. Worth the extra money. -Dana

Not actually asiatam but, same design. And I believe asiatam has their own or is either designing one.


Cheers,
Wade
