Hi All

I had a sabbatical from ships a little while ago.During that time I built the model pictured below over about 12 months.This is the Full option kit with additional upgrades including;

King Kong RC cast magnesium lower hull
King Kong RC fully ball raced CNC aluminium road wheels and idlers
Steel differential housings/drive gears.
Henntec idler system.

A very enjoyable build and extremely heavy with the large content of metal parts.

Kind Regards

Nigel

Thanks Steve

I will take a pic inside the turret.The design of the model means all the electronic control units are in there.Only way to photograph the inner lower hull would be to strip all the electronics out the turret to gain access to the screws that hold the turret mounting ring which is screwed to the speaker box which intern is screwed to the lower hull.

Video ? phewROTF I have all on taking pics, no seriously,I am thinking of investing in a GoPro at some point with a view to doing a multitude of things.Then I may be able to do a video.

Kind Regards

Nigel

Thanks Nigel,

Sorry didn't realize you would have to strip the model.

I look forward to seeing your video one day in the future.

Cheers,
Stephen.
