First kits just arrived these days at Axel's shop (Germany), so hopefully it doesn't need that long until they're available in the States:

Looks like they have a ball bearing set already hope those are the 8x5x2.5 as I have a ton of those.

Yes 8x5x2.5 are the correct size.

Well that didn't take long. Looks like Haya lost their exclusive?

They lost their exclusive when Tamiya announced and shipped theirs.

I reckon damage control to preserve as much of their investment should be focused on changing their product to be one of the L7-armed later Marks in order to differentiate themselves.

Depending on how good this one is, and its probably made by henglong by looking at it, just not marketed by them. Haya probably should scrap their project all together if its henglong. I just dont see a market for 3 makers of the same tank being profitable with his offering and price. He should immediately move to that m60 project before they beat him to that too. Just like Waltersons got beat to the T72 by Henglong and Im sure they gave it up, its never going to get finished.

Big race now to see who's going to get to market first. If TD did their electronics right & simply didn't copy HL, this could be a game changer.

24 models shown which includes sub-variants on the price list. Even saw M10 & M36 in plastic & metal upgrade options in addition to all metal so am curious to see how they do the turrets.

Really, who cares if its a henglong system, yes I would like a better system but they are so good and reliable especailly for nubies that I am fine if they use them.
