Here's some new pics of my H/L Sherman.










I added the new at the time , I think series 2 , 2.4GHZ internals and the twin speaker set up , sounds better.
Black steel G/B's , bearings on the idler wheel , and a speaker , "To play really loud music to scare the krauts."

Hey mate just a tip not a rivet count but if you want to do rope or tie down Tea bag string works a treat and if you need long lengths simply tie it together with a granny knot, when you pull it tight the knot is so small you'll hardly see it. It's also easy to dirty up and get nice colour on it.

Top tip , cheers mate.
I do think the stowage needs something to tie it down to look more like it will stay there longer then 2 minutes.

Here's some of the lads Panzer 4.









This lovely beast sports the 2nd Gen 2.4ghz gear , black metal gearboxes ,  metal tracks , idlers and drive sprockets.
Weathered by my best mate , my now 10 year old son , 3 years ago.
Has extra track links added and a couple of spare road wheels in case she gets a flat tyre.
Has H/L recoil and barrel flash as standard.
Always run like a boss , nary any dramas with this one.

Cheers Monty , Kellys heroes is a fav since the Old Man watched it with me back in the late 70's , early 80's when I was a wee tacker.

Some pics of my M41 Bulldog.
Hope you's like.







Had this old girl a few years now and probably neglected her a bit , as it is still 27mhz , really need to get a 2.4ghz kit to upgrade her.
Still a good runner otb though , never throws tracks or carry's on.
All plastic tracks and wheels , honestly cant remember if I put metal gearbox's in her , but from running her today , it sure does sound like I did? Edit ; upon opening her up today , yes indeed I did install pot metal zinc gearboxes.
Will be spending a bit of time with her this long weekend.

Nice mate, looks great, good to see a bit of stowage on her. It'll also go great with your PBR when you get it.. 8) 8) 8) 8)

Some pics of my new H/L Stug 3.
She's still a bit to clean but will slowly proceed to dirty her up as time goes. Hope you all like her.









As you can see with the dirty big aerial on the rear deck , it is old school 27mhz , but a very kind forum member has donated his 2'nd Gen H/L 2.ghz transmitter and receiver to me and it is on it's way to me now , thankyou mate.

While looking at every available picture of both real and model Stugs , I discovered H/L EXACTLY copied Tamiyas crew members , even the dog!!
Some blatant rip off copying there!

Looks great Yobbo,  8) 8) 8)

I've always thought the crew choice for the Stug is a bit weird. One of our NBRCTC members ditched the dog and replaced it with a live round, as if about to lower it down inside. It looks very effective and a great use of a dud figure. I'll try to remember to get a happy snap for ya next meet.

The 2.4ghz will be great for it and enable you to get rid of that naffy whip on the arse end  ;) :D :D

Cheers
