I got one too !
« on: December 17, 2017, 08:07:45 AM »
Hi all,

One of the Vicarmour members showed up with this at a display we put on yesterday

He didn't even know if it worked, so we put some batteries in it and after a slow start ... it did !

He said " Cool, I might sell it now " .. so I bought it off him

One more for the collection  ;D

This vehicle is NOT FOR SALE. Please do not ask

I have often wanted to get another one of these, Gary.  These Torro-branded half-tracks are much nicer than, say, the "sorta" M35 trucks HengLong has this year begun selling.  Their speed is a bit slower, and the four "ack-ack" guns are a hoot!  I just noticed that I cannot find these half tracks on Torro's new web site.  So you may have been lucky to snag one.  Be very careful about the two figures.  The driver is difficult to fit behind the steering wheel; in fact, I broke the steering wheel a bit trying the first time and only worked up the courage to succeed two years later.  The passenger is fun: he looks as if he is talking and talking and talking at the driver, boring the driver to tears.

Thanks for the tips Ed

We have a couple of others of them in the Club ... both in bit at the moment as the members are trying to set up Elmod boards and other stuff in them

I am not concerned about changing it ... at least that way it will keep running ( hopefully )
