Rut row! Looks like their employee turnover continues. Here in China you'll find replacements & new employees assuming the name of whoever left the company.

Momiji works for the Arkmodel side but she's quite good at follow up. No matter what, I'd recommend doing yourself a favor & copy the owner, Feng, on all your correspondence.

Feng - "arkmodel-webmaster" <[email protected]>, MSN - [email protected]

Holly Sheep s&$^. No kidding. maybe there is hope after all. Might just get me that HE Abrams from Blitz and do a quick conversion. By then Hobben may have enough T-55's for my LEO and Abrams to blow the [email protected]%& out of.

A bit too costly for me...

Tank ARTR 1 Hooben $200
CPU 1 Hooben $120
CESC 1 Hooben $60
Alloy case $60
Shipping $90

TOTAL $530

I believe this is still without the metal gearbox and sound. Momiji also said I need the alloy case. I guess if the tank gets crushed during shipping, it will be my fault if I don't buy the case

And to think when Feng first showed it to me back in Sept '08 he said it would be well under $300 complete with electronics to go mano y mano against Tamiya & HL...
