Love the NZ / Aussie rivalry in that video.

And lots of interesting views of them running for the new Armortek UC owners as well :D

Too right Robert. I imagine Armortek has tapped in to gold mine of new builders from the four corners of the world. (Not the flat earth society) :roll:

The world of proper R/C metal armored models has been crying out for a light weight tracked vehicle instead of hobbyist's trying to convert plastic models and action man tanks.

Sure there's the very talented hobbyist engineers producing much envied one off's, but a well built commercial venture should be a global winner to static and R/C modeler's alike.

Dragon 1/6 figure suppliers must be chuffed to bits with the news.

I'm not bothered if the tracks are alloy or steel, keeping the weight down for speed and endurance must be a priority, though I'd love to see stainless steel track pins "fit and forget" on the 200 approx track links each side.

I calculate at least 10% sales of a 50 model run :?: already ordered, on the first day. Cushty

Could we have a Chieftain Phenomenon in the making? :wink:

Phil should be loving it too, knocking one of these out in a couple of weeks. 8)
A real bus man's oliday (sorry no Maybach mate, just poxy reliable Ford flat 8 ) :lol:

Nothing like Cheeky chappy's in Bren gun carrier (Universal carrier) unless their at point 213 just outside Caen :x Under the command of Brigadier William "Loony" Hinde,

Thank you all for the massive interest in both the Stug III and Universal Carrier.
To say we are swamped at the moment is an understatement. It is going to take us a couple of days to confirm the orders and get the deposit invoices out, so please bear with us in the meantime.

Hi Guys
Just worked out the universal carrier will fit in the load bay of the FAMO if you leave the back door open 🤣🤣🤣.

That's why I keep a Fiat 500 in the trunk of my Bentley. In case I get a flat, it's easier than changing the tire!

Cheers,

Brompton produced a 1/6 scale model of the bike a good few years ago, perfect for a Challenger 2. Or a kit bash of a re-enactor figure to go in a model! Steve

Best to turn them round on the PC before uploading them.
