This is just great. We once again have a place dedicated to the buying and selling of RC tanks and parts and I think that's fantastic.

So if anyone has just a base available you can either post and let me know here or send me a private message.
I think DKLM RC could meet your needs…

Thanks, Leong, that did the trick. I ordered the base, and also the TBU set since right now my only apple is from impact and I've been meaning to get a genuine tamiya apple so it seemed like a good time.

Default IBU2 Pro, New Old Stock $160

I still have three IBU2 Pro boards left for sale, $160 plus $15 shipping to anywhere with a U.S. zip code. These boards have been thoroughly bench tested and are new boards, never before used.

I also have TPA amps for them, and I have quite a few of those, so if you already have an IBU2, base or pro (green board), and want to add an amp these are a great deal at $15. I believe the TPA is 15 watt, but not 100% certain. Perhaps one of you guys can enlighten me.

These boards are no longer in production, and I'm not sure they even still make the Ultimate. I've been told Ivano has disappeared so no one knows if IBUs will ever be made again. Once these last three are gone they're gone for good, which is why I kept a few for myself, and two of them will be used with a JS2 and a King Tiger, both IR battle tanks. Stay tuned.

This is an IBU2 Base, which is the same size as the Pro and looks very similar, but the Pro also has additional pins for channels 5 & 6, and also allows for servo operated traverse and elevation, just plug in the cables.

Hi Everyone,
When I recently opened a new account here, I posted a 1/6 Dragon M4A3 Sherman kit and a 1/6 T23 Turret completely built in the classified section on the RCU main page. Many members from the RC Tank section may have seen it. I'm asking $700.00 for the kit and $300.00 for the T23 Turret buyer pays shipping. I can sell them together or separately. I use PayPal to sell items. If anyone is interested PM me. Here a link to my listing here at RCU. 1/6 Scale Dragon M4A3 Sherman Model Kit NIB

Leftover from my Pre-production turret full option build is the donor static model, it has all the turret parts from the production turret RC and should go together without much fuss, also includes the stock plastic tracks so you dont need to assemble them like the static kit, this is ripe for RC conversion. asking what I paid $100 plus shipping.




Spare plastic tracks in brand new condition from left to right JS-2, Panther/Jagdpanther, King Tiger $30 per set plus actual shipping.



PM if interested,

Default TCB/open panzer

Hey guys, I still have one of the TCB boards that I'm willing to let go. I got this board brand new from hobby king after they installed the proper fets. You guys might remember the first batch of these boards had the wrong fets in them so Hobby King changed them to the proper fets and then put them up for Sale. That's where I got this one.

Asking $75 plus actual postage. If you have a US zip code the postage will be $11. PM me if you're interested.

Hey Gary, I can take off your hands. Have some large tank projects planned so the TCB works better for those. I'll PM my Paypal if that works.

SALE PENDING!!!

Hi Everyone,
When I recently opened a new account here, I posted a 1/6 Dragon M4A3 Sherman kit and a 1/6 T23 Turret completely built in the classified section on the RCU main page. Many members from the RC Tank section may have seen it. I'm asking $700.00 for the kit and $300.00 for the T23 Turret buyer pays shipping. I can sell them together or separately.

Hi Everyone,
I don't know why some posts here don't allow to be edited. Maybe because my account isn't old enough or I haven't met the threshold of enough messages posted here. I just wanted to add the SALE PENDING to my listing. I'll be doing it in my classified section listing as well.

I still have 3 of the IBU2 pro boards. If someone wanted to buy all three for future use, I can offer a pretty significant discount. PM me if you're interested.

Hi Everyone,
I've been busy and I should've updated that the Dragon M4 kit and the T23 Turret didn't sell. The buyer was a Scam Artist who sent me a stolen Bank Check that he altered as payment. I had asked for a USPS Money order as payment to which he said it had to be a Bank Check. I received and deposited the Check and of course it didn't clear because it was forged.

I will lower the M4 kit to $600, but the T23 is firm at $300. Buyer still pays S&H. At this time, I will only accept a USPS Money Order and the items will ship the same day payment is received Via the Buyers recommended shipping company. These two items are waiting to be sold from the 02860 zip code area where I've lived for over 10 years.

Thanks
Roger rb67mustang

Greetings, this is informational but I have reduced the price of my 1/16 Tamiya RC LEO + Upgrades. Pictures and detailed information can be found under "Buy & Sell" thread, "Cars, Trucks, and Tanks-All Ad listings", I did not want to assume.

**New price is 1,900.00, this includes shipping or 1,850.00 if gifted as fried, clear check or money order.

If sold I will have to ship the upgrades in a separate box, thanks.

-Regards

Default IBU2 Update

Hey Fellas, just an update that I now have just two IBU2 Pro boards left. I've shipped enough of them by now to have a pretty good handle on postage cost, and with a US zip code, one IBU2 Pro and one TPA amp is $165 (that includes a 15% discount for RCU members), postage included (if payment is sent by paypal friends & family, add $10 if you want the added protection of paypal "Goods & Services).

Overseas I use the USPS International small flat rate box ($45) and then the price is $200 (postage included) for one board and one amp by paypal Friends & Family, add $10 for "goods & services". And that also includes the 15% discount for RCU members.

Feel free to PM me with any inquiries.

Gary

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Just wanted to give everyone one last chance to consider my posting of the LEO + Upgrades.

I have dropped the price to 1,600.00 shipped or 1,450.00 if gifted as friend through PayPal, money order, or cleared personal check.


Price is negotiable, Thanks!

-Regards

ESTATE COLLECTION

Hi Guys, I'll be using this thread to post some very cool stuff over the next week or two, and there are some very cool items going on the block. Here's a photo of some of it, and I'll be posting individual items here real soon.

We'll start with a Blitzkrieg Armor 1/6 scale Hetzer kit. This kit appears to be fully complete, and unlike the kit I bought a few years ago, the tracks are in really great shape and well assembled. I believe this may be one of the earlier kits, hence the great tracks. On my kit I had to completely re-work both tracks to get them right, but that won't be necessary with this kit.

Asking price for this kit is $2,500 US, plus shipping. Now might be a good time to mention that all prices listed here will be plus shipping, and you will only pay actual shipping cost. If you pay shipping and we later learn it will cost less than estimated, a refund for the excess will be issued.

Next is an Armor Hobbies Sd.Kfz.250 halftrack kit. I have one of these kits myself and it's suited for RC conversion, my lazy ass just hasn't gotten around to completing my kit. This kit also comes with spare parts from another, identical kit, including a lower hull and other parts. In this photo you see the kit with the spares on top of the box, but the box underneath contains a complete, brand new 250 kit. Asking price is $350 US, plus shipping of course, but this kit is fairly light and shouldn't be over the top for shipping costs.

This is just a start and there will be much more to come. Here's a teaser photo of two of the Tamiya tanks, a King Tiger that runs and is in the process of being tested, and an M-51 Super Sherman project that appears mostly complete. If you're interested in any of these items, or the items to come, we can get detailed photos for you on request. Prices on these two tanks have yet to be determined, that's why I call it a teaser photo.

From what I've seen so far, the guy that originally owned this stuff was a very good modeler and the build quality seems quite good.

Next will be a 1/6 Panzer IV kit, made by the same folks that did the Hetzer. Price on this one is yet to be determined, as we still need to figger out what's here and what's missing, so give us a minute on this one, this is just a teaser photo.

More to come.

MORE ESTATE COLLECTION

OK, now for the 1/16 tanks. First up, a pair of Shermans. The first is a project tank, an M-51 Super Sherman. Sold as is, what you see is what you get.









Asking price on this one is $300

Another Sherman, bare inside but I'm told this was originally a full option kit and has the mounting holes for the twin gear boxes









This one is $200

Now a Full option King Tiger. This tank has been tested and runs, but you'll need your own radio and receiver










The King Tiger is $700

Next is a full option Tiger One, and this has also been tested and runs









$650 for this one.

Additional photos are available upon request, if any of these interest you just shoot me a PM
