Hmmm now I have an idea. I have one of those abrams toys that you just push the buttons on top to make noises and move. Hmm.... I could make the bridge hand launched since it would take a remote with 9 channels just to make it actually work. With 3 escs and motors and 6 servos. Plus building working interlocks and stuff. I could just build a working elcp for it that just plugs in to the tank lol.

HELLO Guys Well on that tank or 113 I was going to do . Well it became a full working tank. THE Only reason I was going to use it was the gun did not fire . Well I figure out the wireing and got it working so that tank became another one in my personal tanks but I do have another chassic including a panzer rolling chassic, So If I can swap runing RC into it I may use that one in stead. Been looking for some on that one Thanks DON

OK I have begun ;-)

Well things has work out just right today. MY wife is out heat is off and I am now starting to build. THE M 113. I was going to use the Panzer chassic I have but with the larger motors the circut board may not have been able to handle it. So I went to the spare lepard chassic that I use all of the time . Ok so it is not compeatly right O well.;-) It will be close and will work for what I want to do .

UP date

Well I have had to put up the M113 on the side for a couple of days. I am helping a buddy of mind with trying to get a couple of his tanks runing.

YA I said YES no problem when I should have said no.;-) FOR some reason I have never learn that word when A buddy needs help or I can help others . But it all comes back to me in the long run . IT also helps me learn about new tanks and what they are made of .
I should get back to mine soon.
IT dose Makes life intresting.,
DON

HE wanted it offered me a good deal on a 120th HL tank that has all of the goodys . THE only thing I have to do is fine radio for it . But is a panzer 4 with the good radio gear. I will see what happens on the tank But dont give up on me. I still plan on doing another one a little later. . Right now I had to back off for health related reasons again.

Don hope all goes well for you.

You inspired me. Got this idea, and the tankers aren't going to like it.

I have a hangar queen 1/9th Abrams that may get turned into a Sno-Cat.

Can't be any worse then it is. Why 21st Century used Stuart style boogies on it is beyond me. Right up there with the idlers that two men and a boy are needed to compress the springs on...

I'll probably only use the sprocket and treads and mod the tub, build new suspension for it, and use up some of my stash of rubber wheels instead of the stock stuff.

HEYY GG
Sounds good to me Gald I was able to do it So must have done something right .:-))
HOW about sending me some pictures of your tanks and toys by an E mail FROM what your saying your like me . LIKE TO be different . BUT Like you say your in a larger scale then what I do but If I had the room I would be like you. I had enought problems just trying to make room for Escort carrier at six feet or all most and I still have an DDG burke that is just under that one . Wish I could fine a musume that would be intrested . I just happen to hit it lucky with the carrier..I just hope they dont tell me they no longer need it then I will be in for problems. FOR WHEN I let it go to the musume I had some room so guess what I did .? fill the room with three others.O well. DON

HEY Slim dont give up on me yet that thought is still there.
I may end up with the box part of the M 113 sometime in the near future for the person that I swap with is not sure if he wants it or not. I will just give it some time.
IF nothing Elest I will have another one going some time in the near future.
. I got a 2 rolling/runnig good track chassics
. I may do the next one in Styrine in stead. That will make it even look better.. THE Tank I got in exchange was one I could not pass off. It was a tank with all of the goodys that I was looking for and it it a German panzer 3 with a short barrel so now i have the Panzer 1 and 3. All of my tanks are in 120th except for 3 of them . I like to keep to the 120 for room and I am runing out of that as well;-))
SO do keep in touch and thanks again for your help with pictrues . DON

OK Round 2 will be on its way. O no I am starting to think again on another build Another M 113.:-)
On this build I have a nice panzer rolling chassic that all most looks like the M113 better then the Lepard I was useing. The board is also good. ON the lepard only part of the board was good .
ONLY half of it was good now I will have everything so I may be able to more with this one.?

NO up dates on that chassic. I will still be involve with it. So in time there will be a pair of them.. THIS new one I have plans of useing styline instead wood like the first one. IT may not cause me the problems I was having ?? Ok So stay tune. DON THE Rustbucket
