O.K...Finally came in !!!!

Its 1am here in OZ so I aint taking  photos for no one ...yet.[:D]

Here's a quick lowdown:

* Crisp detailing
* Decent paint job
* still got the random glue globule here and there - nothing major, a quick sand or razor scrape will get rid of it
* LOTS of accessories - think of the raw tank as mostly a clean skin
* Rub down transfers
* smooth 2.4ghz transmitter - lots of control on speed of tank.
* pretty std sounds
* metal gun and coax machine gun barrels
* Std heng Long jerky recoil - NO BARREL RECOIL
* no mg43 for gunner[>:]
* nice strong airsoft - I like (run all my tanks with airsoft)
* very smooth suspension travel, with the front 3 and rear two being travel limited (but that can be easily modified)
*IN BUILT TRACK TENSIONER - yes you heard right!  It is not infinitely variable - it has predetermined 'indents' in the chassis tub to allow positive or negative tension to be applied to the idler mount.
* Comprehensive manual with parts listing.
* Per instruction manual, metal upgrades will include: tracks, idlers, drive wheels and gearboxes (steel and zinc versions)
* Per instruction manual - full range of upgrades for conversion to I/R

For those desperate for detailed photos RIGHT NOW, look at this website (translated to English) with references to Leopard2A6 or 'Panther 2' (yeah, the 2nd reference makes sense...):

built in track tensioner is sweet. ;D

Have they given it full 360 degree turret rotation or just the usual HL rotation set up?

Cheers

Hi Mark,

normal (limited) turret movement

Just file the teeth into the turret ring for full 360 deg if you want it.

I like the track adjustments on it. About time they brought something to light. They look pretty good i reckon.

I got mine a few weeks ago it came with the metal barrel stuffed threw the turret braking the mounts for the elevation mech  this was from shipping not fault of Hobby Raw .
Witch was ok was going to change it to recoil anyway and JB weld mounts back in was easy .
Its a very nice tank even the plastic lower tub is a little more stronger wont need but top metal braces to stop any flexing of hull .
Here are some pics of the damages and the change over to servo recoil I'm going to install TK22-Leo2 but its on back order from Immortal Hobbies. I replaced the plastic gear gearboxes with a set of steel gearboxes with 480 motors .

Thanks
Jimmy

Amazing how the shipping damage always seems to hit straight on the barrel that cause's most damage to a tank :(
Good servo mod  8)
Any chance of more pics of the beast

Cheers
