Re: FAMO radio setup

Our factory model has been set up with front wheel steering on the left stick and tracks on the right stick. We mix the tracks (as with the tanks), but do not mix with the front wheel steering - this is because we found that depending on the surface that is being driven on, the front wheels will eit...

Re: Armorteks next model

Many thanks for all your kind words.

I don't want to hijack this thread further, so started a new thread on the "Factory Flood" viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8274

Can now get back to discussing what our next model(s) might be :-)

Re: Armorteks next model

Omg, what happened? (Aside from the obvious of course) Normal English summer day :-) Actually more like a short sharp downpour on a large roof surface with insufficient guttering and waterproofing. You're a long way up a hill there, so I presume that's run off ? Hope it dries up quickly and didn't ...

What colours are available for the various cap, shirt & jackets?
Hi Alan
The items are all in navy blue, as shown in the first post.
We can make an exception and order in red, but no other colours.
Best regards,
Monique

Hello Monique and Kian.

Will it be possible to order a 'Windbreaker in RED? Or are we stuck with the Navy Blue?

Regards

Mike
Hi Mike,
We can order the windbreaker in red, but we don't know if the Armortek logo will show clearly.
Regards,
Monique

Re: Caps, shirts, jackets and more

Can you please clarify the “actual chest” measurement please? Phil. That's the width between the armpits of the garment, not the wearer, measured when the garment is laid on a flat surface. https://www.blankclothing.com.au/chest-measurement-sizes-guide/ Adrian. Adrian's description is spot on. Ches...

Re: Caps, shirts, jackets and more

Here you go Derek.

Pictures have been posted in Red, since this brings out the detail better than the Navy Blue.

Re: Speed of the chieftain

Hi Emil, You emailed us a few weeks ago to ask if the Chieftain motors could be made to go faster - at the time we replied: " It may be that the transmitter is not set up correctly so is not sending the full range of signal to the receiver. You should try changing the servo settings on the transmitt...

STUG III Production Validation Build

Production of the STUG III is now in full swing. Machining of the large hull plates is pretty much complete as are the hundreds of road wheels. Lots of 5 axis work on this kit, so that will keep our machining centres busy for the next few weeks. CIMG_8503 (1366).JPG CIMG_8504 (1366).JPG CIMG_8505 (1...
