Hi dirtytanker, welcome to the form. Looks like you have most of the tank manufacturers covered.

Well, the others I can think of are either out of business or just rebranded tanks. Bandai had some 1/15 and 1/24 scale tanks that were RC years ago. Forces of Valour had 1/24 scale tanks a few years back I have all those, too bad they stopped making them they had some unique features on the controllers such as the ability to set up teams so you don't get hit by friendly fire, volume control and such as well as IR gun implacements searchlights and howitzers. Kinda like the bunkers you can get for VStanks. Torro, trumpeter are some others, I'm sure there are others.
Anyway it is probably the best time to get into the hobby as I think we are entering the golden era for the hobby as there are more options than ever.
Happy tanking.

Hey dirtytanker. I'm just getting started at it, Just got my first full metal Sherman m4a3 a year ago from taigen. After a little messup with hobbytron (never order ANYTHING from hobbytron, this is likely common knowledge to yall). And I just fell in love with it. I don't make much money at my job, but I wound up buying an additional tiger I early full metal version for my brother, and then a brand new t-34 2 days later. So I'm broke as a joke but damn if I ain't having a blast. CANT WAIT for the Sherman 76mm, that thing looks thugnasty.

Imex-model seems to be the most reliable company though, not to say I have looked around too hard. It just has such a nice feel to it, Quality product from a website that appears at first glance to be a warehouse with one receptionist and a bunch of workers. Which is just wonderful, because you get to know people like Erik and Shyanne. They're not perfect, but theyre perfectly reasonable and rational. Like even though my replacement parts for t-34 will be in green, I can't expect them to change them to white to fit my tank, that aint their job. So I'll just do it myself, that's half the hobby anyway is it not?

That's just a bunch of ramble, I'm a newbie here though so yolo and whatnot.

I made a gearbox cover for my Tamiya JS-2 from a peace of cardboard and some black tape. The gun barrel on my WSN t34/85 looks a bit ****.
