That's HUGE. How much do those kits cost? I bet for not much more you can buy the real thing - I have seen Chieftans for about £5,000 - trouble is the running costs are a tad higher!!!

About 3.5K depending on spec. and level of detail. You do not want one running over your foot. Tracks are 3 1/2 inches wide and Al. Mine will tow that pick up on level ground and I drive it up into the back of the truck using a ramp. Seven channel including steering, speed, turret rotation and elevation and gun firing.
Has 2 5 inch speakers inside with proportional sound. Realy ticks the neighbours off if I turn the volume up. Available in UK from Portsmouth area.

Here are few more tank action pics plus one of my friend "Cool Fred" and his favorite toy. Fred recently passed away so this is just a little tribute to an old friend

Stop it. I feel like a third world refugee on a desert island.

Off down town tomorrow to look at the tamiya Tiger. Beyond my means but something I've been drooling over for 15 years.

As for the tank you have I was at a show last year where the manufacturer had a display. I can't find a picture from the display but heres one of an armoured car.
