Hello Karel47 ..you are giving misinformation here... And we all know misinformation is not good 1/ the new JAGDTIGER from TORRO is 100 percent NEW TOOLING.....And has nothing to do with CHINA MATORRO......2/ German Matorro has nothing to do with China Matorro { At one time there was some cooperation .. but ended due to shady dealings of CHINA MATORRO ] And we are expecting it late this year The JAGDTIGER ..With the latest news I have.. Thank you Bill

aha i did know that the matorro was bad ... i read somewhere on the net heng long , wsn , torro and matorro ( its all chinese stuff) is one big factory devided into 4 plants wich produce seperatly but are from the same group / owner

am looking forward to see the torro one, i must admit torro have quite nice stuff nowadays ... i have their panther on the box stands torro but also in minor letters heng long ... the same with WSN on the box is also a torro mark
its quite confusing how they manipulate their names
if the jagdtiger will as good as the sturmtiger it would be a hit ... now that we get what we want who gonna buy one ?
Ludwig is also coming with a Hetzer later this year , marder, panther ausf A , halftracks are aviable ... its time to expend ... ive ordered a Panther ausf A and a Marder 1A1 by ludwig , i saw a fennek also advertised somewere on his site ... but am busy on my own one scratching ...

sorry for the wrong information, you can be right ... w'll see it in the future

No Problem Im in China at least 5 times per year to stay on top of QUALITY CONTROL and Product Development.. There is at least 6 makers of tanks in china .. with 4 in Cheghai we are located in Ningbo and the other i think is down in Dongguan area...So its not 1 big factory and all seperate factory owners. Hope that clears thing up ... Theres of new stuff coming Thanks Bill

I hope one of those 6 makers in China come out with a M60, M60A1 or M60A3. A T72 would be nice too.

While I was at the AAF Museum in Danville yesterday for a battlefield workday,
I got to see the T-34/85 in person. Some very nice detail on the outside, and a solid foundation on the inside.
By far the best T-34 available.

I am confident that this will be done right as opposed to the other disaster on the market.

I could never really afford the WEHCOE kit and after hearing about the problems with them and the Panther kit I stayed away from it even if I could spend that kind of money.

One Jagdtiger will be all I will need. What... only the most fearsome looking TD in the world.

I was watching the TV program "Wheeler Dealers" on BBC America last night. They went to a surplus military depot 25 miles outside of Warsaw
and these guys had a T34 for sale. They actually took it for a test drive. I believe they said it was for sale for $50,000.

Yea I tried to get my boss to buy a tank over in Europe but he wouldn't do it for some reason. It was street legal there too! I'm pretty sure if he drove it to work here he would have a squadron of cops behind him when he arrived lol.

Those pesky cops got no sense of humor. Of course, if Bill did show up in a T-34 I imagine the cops behind him would at least keep a respectful distance!

Hi Eric. I messed around and did not get my order for a T-34 in at Casper, Wyoming's Wheels & Wings until after they had ordered their tanks. They already have the airsoft version in and will probably not order again until near Christmas. Can I order the parts to convert to IR and what would they cost? My long term plan includes a new board and conversion to a hobby radio so I may just live with airsoft until I can afford the new board. Any thoughts? jot in a snowy Casper, WY

Quick work by Carl at Wheels & Wings and Eric at Imex have me all fixed up with an IR T-34 on it's way. I am getting the green one and plan on using chalk for winter camouflage (winter started yesterday with 3 inches of snow on the cars) in the hope that it will last until June and then wash off. Thanks to everyone. jot
