Re: Field Of Armor

My view is that grievances with organisations should be addressed to them directly first. In this case the main issue is that people could not get a response from FOA, so I kept this thread open whilst we worked in the background to contact Loic through a third party to give him the opportunity to r...

Re: A Chequered Chieftain at #10

......... I do use moly inside the gearbox and on the axle spindles but avoid wet lubricants like the plague. This has been longstanding advice from Armortek although I don't believe it's been re-validated recently. Still very much our advice. Unless you have a sealed environment, over time contami...

Survey Results

Survey Results: We have been asked a few times for the results from the survey that we ran a month ago. Our policy is not to give too much away, not because we want to keep our customers in the dark, but more because we don't want other companies to get an insight into what we are up to. In that reg...

Re: A Chequered Chieftain at #10

Richard - if you add some salt to the vinegar it will speed the process up.
The warm tracks will start to rust pretty fast again in this humid weather, so best to etch prime each batch as you go or use WD40 and leave the de-greasing till later.

Re: Jagdtiger prototype

The JT will be shipping with Aluminium tracks.
Steel tracks will add approx 20kg to an already heavy model and will add strain to the running gear.

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

School boy error today.
Whilst testing recoil, managed to short the batteries and set fire to the electronics. Word to the wise, don't have bare wires in the hull and shield the battery terminals!
No pictures I'm afraid - it was too embarrassing.

Re: 2019 King Tiger

Been a while since our King Tiger update, so here are some pictures of the Production Validation Build. Still a way to go, but it is coming together nicely. After 3 heavy tanks in a row (Chieftain, KT & JD, think it may be time for something lighter :wink: ) IMG_7164.JPG IMG_7167.JPG IMG_7168.JPG IM...

Re: New electronics in August

Hello! A month ago, Allan asked a question about the new Recoil module, whether the smoke module can now be integrated here. I would also be interested in whether smoke can be simulated after a shot now. Cheers Michael We have the system running, and running well, on the bench with the recoil unit....

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Youngjae, I really look forwards to seeing the Chieftain in Berlin camouflage. I wanted the factory model to be painted that way, but got a bit worried by the amount of work ... now I am very tempted again!

Re: New Transmitters

Thanks for all the input above and don't disagree with what has been said - especially the part about not losing control of your model ! There is a broad spectrum of customers that we must cater for - for some, this may be their first RC experience whilst others have been involved for decades and kn...
