Again it says it is plastic injection molded so this will be a great RC challenge, but one that is doable

I wouldn't get too excited. 
Takom is a Hong Kong company that just formed this year. They have yet to produce anything yet.

Though I would love to get one.

Heavyaslead built one a couple years ago. He's got a build thread on his club's website.

"Track links not included", as in the kit is 260 pieces, plus however many more that make up the tracks.

Looks like the number of pieces include the interrior parts....tracks appear to have 30 or 32 links per side, so 64 track links leaves plenty of tank parts. Would be nice to see one RCd.

I LOVE that tank and would LOVE a 1/16 r/c one.

Maybe one day...
That day occurred a few years ago... Eric Scott, as Brett already mentioned, has custom built one. I had the pleasure of driving it a few years ago at Danville. It is a 3 shot light and was very slow (Glacial... is the word that comes to mind...LOL). I saw the static one at the Patton Museum which was found in and Afghan junkyard in the early 2000s. I was lucky to get a good look at the real thing at Samur last year. They are neat. The Samur tank has a few holes in it.

Nice!

I need to get back to Ropkey's and see his finished FT they were re-furbishing when I was last there.





Almost looks like the M1917 with that turret.
