Jagdpanther.

I have a Jagdpanther for sale. It is one of the earlier models and when I got it the poor thing was struggling. I have fitted all new electronics and two new batteries. I stripped and repainted it and fitted new gun motors. It has one of Adrian's smoker controls and a 2 year old radio I also have a ...

Re: Famo 18 tonner.

Hi all, Hope everybody is fit and well. Only 4 more orders needed for the FAMO 9 to become a reality. That is really good news. :) Only even better news would be if 4 more sign up for it and make it a reality. :D I reckon if the kit was made then Armortek would have no trouble moving that last few. ...

Re: Famo 18 tonner.

Hi all, Well, the Famo 9 thread went quiet quickly didn't it? We reached 30 and everything went silent. I for one am very happy that the Monster truck might actually happen. One of these huge vehicles will fit in with my battle group beautifully. Here's hoping everything works out. All the best Kevin.

Re: Famo 18 tonner.

Hi all,
As Dennis says it will be about 4 feet 6 inches long. A big enough bit of kit to tickle our fancy, very imposing. Fingers crossed.
All the best
Kevin

Re: Famo 18 tonner.

Hi all, Just plugging the Famo 9 18 ton half track. We only need 15 more names on the list and we maybe get this fantastic piece of WW2 machinery in 1/6th scale. What a big imposing model it would be! An impressive machine that all who own WW2 German tanks would be glad of in their collection. A rea...

Re: Steering on Panzer IV.

Hi all,
Many thanks to Mark for cracking the problem. I was definitely at sea with this and as it turns out I was on completely the wrong track.
Thanks Mark.
All the best

Re: Steering on Panzer IV.

Hi all, Thanks for your replies to my call for help. I have swapped the motor wires so right runs left etc. The result is that the right hand goes weak telling me that the problem is probably in the transmitter although I suppose it could be in the module. I will try 2 stick running tomorrow to elim...

Steering on Panzer IV.

Hi all, If you will allow me to pick your brains yet again I have a small problem with my P4. I have installed all new Armortek electronics in this tank run by a Futaba T8J transmitter. Everything works well except that the left hand track is weak on steering. Right track no problem at all, left tra...
