This is a very nice kit that I was told about by my friend "rworne", he had brought one back from Japan and showed me, I was impressed with it's detail for the scale, it's about the HO scale. I started this about this time last year, but with my move out of the state I never got a chance to post, so here I go, hope some find it of interest....:whistle:
I decided to made it "RC" capable by using the track portion of this 1/70 scale Tiger Tank toy that had a two motor setup, I did have to change the motors in the tank from "core-less" to a more controllable pair with more torque. I also added head/tail lights and emergency lights on the top

This is the last post for tonight, the video shows the "RC" control of the lights, the last picture shows the magnetic reed switch for binding to the transmitter.

Well, I got the tracked vehicle's electronics done and started the job of filling in the many gapes on this portion of the model, I was surprised by how poorly some of this kit's parts fit together, not something I expected to see from a Japanese kit.....o_O This is the last video for the tracked vehicle for now. It needs filling and sanding so I can paint it. I used 5 min epoxy as a filler due to the large gapes and ill fitting of some of the parts, still love the kit even with the gaps....
