  ;D I reckon ;D that those box's contain objects that you have fantasized over for ages and decided that in order to maintain your health and sanity you have invested your pocket money in so that your fantasy becomes reality  ;) :D.
Or they contain two silicon rubber sex dolls. Lololol

Now there were a few good ideas there, gentlemen.  Indeed, most US beers are wretched.  Fortunately, nowadays most towns over about 10,000 population have a "micro brewery," saving the day.  And, indeed, I am looking for a 35 year old astrophysicist who is drop dead gorgeous, crazy about me, and wants to live in a rural college town.  She must, of course, tolerate all my hobbies.

Now back on topic.  Does this hint help?

Correct-a-mundo, Andy!

Here's the story.  Each month I drive 50 miles to a Southern Wisconsin Armor Preservation Society meeting.  These fellows like 1/35 AFVs of all vintages, but none (yet ;) ) has any 1/16 AFV.  However, they are starting to show some interest.  For 2017 they have their usual modeling contest, competing to see who can create the winning 1/35 Tamiya M10 Wolverine.  My idea is to show up with this all-metal monster when they bring in their contest tanks.

Right now I am reading up on the M10 to learn all I can before starting the paint work and adding markings, figures, and stowage.

Now does anyone have a schematic showing which plug goes where on the Mato board? ???

Hi mate,
If the board came with the tank - I think the metal Mato tanks are fitted with a Clark TK22 board these days.
If so - here is pic for ya and a couple of links to all the info you'll need including a connection diagram or 2.

Thank you, Mark!  Apparently the motors, battery cable (and something 90 degrees immediately next to it), the speaker, and volume are already hooked up.  That makes sense, as the lower hull came separately from the upper.  So hookup should now be a snap for me.  I will report back to you when I get some time for a test run.  However, right now Sgt. Schnauzer is demanding attention, and if I do not comply, it's not pretty...
