3 custom tanks

All of these tanks are scrtch build from the chassis up. All were built on lepard chassics except for the troop carrer it was built on a Panzer 3 chassic. I would would have use good old USA but i could not fine any that would work for what I was working with . All are HOME house a company out of China .. As far as I know that is whear there from chassics only. ON THE M 88 the boom goes both ways by hand. DON THE Rustbucket

Here's a few of mine:

First, the Tamiya M26A1 Pershing and the Tamiya M4A1E8 Sherman.



Next, the Tamiya M4A3 "Oddball" Sherman.



Then the Sturmtiger that was built using the Tamiya TI, Imperial Models conversion kit and WECOHE wheels. Still a work in progress as I will add front fenders and an ambush camo.



And a few more of the M4A1E8 Sherman.

I think it would be neat if all of us could meet together and display our tanks to others.
What a show that would be. All of the tanks look grate.
THE shearman will be my last tank I add someday.
A big thank you to the one that set this sight up in the beginning.

HEY GG I have one of thoes monsters all stock so far. It was given to me about 2 weeks ago. BY the way I am in the middle of another change over. I am taking the compleat radio gear out of the panser that I have been working on and now right in the middle of installing it in my pershing may even pull the gear boxs to go long with it. THEN I will install what was in the pershing into back into the panzer. Makes the first step into what I plan on doing later . LIKE I say it just takes time and that is what I have lots of unless some one has other ideas. I hope not have to many projects to take care of befor that time?? DON

Have 3 HLs - still going strong: Early War Tiger I, König Tiger, Mid War Tiger I. I made a cast of the King Tiger cupola and swapped it over to the Mid War with many new parts cast and fabricated.

I've had the Early War Tiger since 2007 and its gone through some new gears and new smokers, but the gun still shoots and the sound board is still running strong. It was purchased from Raidentech back when these tanks were on sale for just $55! I should have bought an entire battalion!

For the price they're unbeatable!

NEW Duster

HELLO OK been a wile I can see from the last time I was on.
Sorry life took over;-)
OK I sold all of my 120th custom tanks use the cash to make my Peshing into a full I R battle tank and I love it !!!

BUT in the mean time I pick up a use walker bull dog that was parts and rebuilt it and built my self another M 42 duster with now an RX board with all of the goodys. my other one only had a cheap board it ran good but not what I wanted in the long run. . THE turret goes around both ways. both set of head lights work both tail lights also has the HL sound system . THIS time it is on a 16 scale chassic and frame from the top up from the deck all scrath build. Enjoy DON THE Rustbucket
