Hen Long Or Matorro super version R/C King Tiger

Did a search, came across a few older posts, wanted to see what a new updated review or opinion for which one to get? Or even the Tamiya one? But does the sound have to be added to that one? Where to get website wise, or if someone here has one? Came across rctankwars, matos website and one other so far. Mato carries the super version with the metal engine? The plans for all this is I plan on building a 1/4 all metal r/c tank, the lead is a King Tiger, panzer III or similar. Just havent locked it in yet, but more likely a King Tiger. So between books, plans, HL 1:35 model, and one of these for viewing im gathering for info to build the big one. Thank you.

The Tamyia tank has sound already. The preference for a tank to build is whatever one you wish to build. This is a hobby/affliction that is supposed to make you happy, so do what makes you happy.

I will, going to order it from Phil next week, with the 3:1 reduction and 480 motors and some detail accessories. Then hit up on the wife for one of the Blaster Pro, radio and Elmod pro, and ill buy the other two in the next two months. Going for the IR one, figure next spring or earlier Ill pick up a second tank the wife would like one and we can do battles lol.

There is a group in Michigan and a couple of guys in Ill. and Ind. that frequent the boards. Have you looked at the H.E.A.T. site from the AAF Tank Museum site in Danville Va.? There is a lot of good information there as well as in the RC Groups.com tank section also. I know of a guy in Joliet Ill. also.
