Im also new to r/c tanking but didnt it say down the bottom of the page that is was a heng long model and my opinions on heng long are very high i think they are a great value for money tank and are a much cheaper alternative to its tamiya counterparts.

hope that helps.

kind regards pantigerman.

WOW!! That IS extremely cool! Too bad it's 6 months too late for me because I'm nearing the end of my Sturmtiger conversion myself.

But, I may have to get one anyway!!

So does it shoot regular airsoft pellets?

edit- translated the page and it sure does.

Kind of an odd tank though. I would have thought they'd do a t-34 or some other more common tank first.

I think someone in China saw how popular the Sturmtiger conversion kits were and decided to make a complete toy.

Can't say I like it that much, there's lots of other tanks I would of prefered. So I'll save my pennies for a couple of Pz III's.

I wonder if the electronics are the same as the HL's ? It has the same controller as theHL's but it runs of a 9.6v battery.

This new tank is not produced by Heng Long, but from another Shantou factory.

Mato Toys sells a lot of accessories that are not made by HL - I would think by the name, Matorro, it may be fair to guess this Sturmtiger is produced as a new OEM brand.

I saw it months ago, but this is the first time I have seen it for sale, other than in bulk. I want one!!! I guess I will buy one in a week or so........I hope I can get past the language barrier. []

Thanks, Schutzstaffel!!!

isnt torro the company that makes the metal tracks (the ones im waiting for are)
the tracks are in a mato box and the tracks are stamped torro so maybe MATORRO is like a mesh of the two!

my guess is mato are selling tigers that have been converted using the sturmtiger kit

the kits are on this website

It's from Shantou Mato Plastic Toys, a manufacturer & trading agent who produces their own toys & RC tank parts as well as trades / distributes HL product. HL is NOT making the Sturmtiger - the only new product they've been working on is the new Pz3.

That was the link that I had seen before on this forum, but it still shows a minimum order of 100 pieces. [&o] I'm kind of afraid to order from the German-speaking Ebay, since I don't know how to say much more than ein beer bita. Maybe I will have to give it a shot anyway because who knows how long it will be before the English-speaking Ebay has any listed. []

I hate the though of waiting almost as much as I hate the thought of not being able to communicate with the seller if there is an issue. [:@]

>>>icecreakslicks

at 101 euro ,
you will feel like a canadian buying from usa

but i think the quality of that tank is a little better than h.l.
(new wheels-3color painting).

if shipping fees are honest.. go for it ,

This one looks cool. The paint could easily be made to look more realistic.

I just ordered one! I hope they charge my credit card now, so I do not have insufficent funds when the tanks are in stock and ready for delivery!

I'll probably forget about ordering it and have a nice surprise in the spring.
