They are a nice tank and with a bit of work can be made to look the part. The best thing you can do to then is replace the electronics with a RX 18, it makes them a bit more controllable but still a bit fast. The one in the video is stock and with the original electrics (hate the sound it makes, sounds like a Christmas sled with bells)

I will have to agree. The additional squeeks were annoying as well as it happening before any movement. Still I goota get one, as I have a M4a3 hull arriving which wont take much to mofify to a a2.....  I hope. Just need to work on the engine hatches.

I can only find one seller in Oz, he who should not be named. Cheesy however has had luck ordering from him.

I would'nt buy from him unless you can see it in front of you ,and even then there would be some catch.
Best not to go there ,im sure there is some other place to get them.
If you want i'll take your money ,tell you a bunch of lies over and over and still not get what you want,either way the out come will be the same.
This is just a "i told you so"

Yeah, always been withholding the Sherman funds due to the collective and personal experience dealings in WW2.
Only if the Sherman raffle concludes and someone else gets the dear one, would I get on to Phil at Rctankwars.

I did get one locally for a mate early last year, I still have not been able to fix the damn thing, I have in desperation taken it to a local electronics repair man, he reckoned he could fix it, but has not touched in in nearly a year, I will get onto him again.
     How come they are so hard to get?

Cheers
