The Hobby Engine crawler with clamshell bucket is still available on Amazon.com and probably many more places.  It costs about 116.00 USD.  I do have a RC compact hydraulic excavator because I operated one for a friend who was digging a trench in a fen.  I did have fun, although I was a challenge keeping the loaded excavator upright, for a "fen" is soft ground with water underneath just a meter or so down.

Ahem...now on to tanks...
