This tank has come a long way in fun and satisfaction as well as modification and repairs.

It is much fun to do the repairs than playing with the tank that I almost spent more time modifying it than running it.

Here are a few self explanatory photos of some of the mods I did.

First off was painting the tank with the correct German Gray from Tamiya sprays. Trying it out on the exhaust shields:



Then worked on the whole upper and lower hulls.



Then added some mud stains.



Mud stains everywhere lol.

And when you're having too much fun, something breaks....



The airsoft quits firing.....



And found the culprit, a snapped plastic part.



So might as well keep that way until parts arrive

In one of the threads here in RCG I read that the cannon barrel of the HL Tiger was short of an inch in scale.....



I found a perfect material for the mod



Time to measure... is this long enough?



Ohhh just 1 inch please
