Richie's Little Tank

Hi Richie, To progress my 1/4 scale K7 I needed to learn CAD & how to manipulate plasticard, that drove me towards RC tanks. I’ve got 2 Tiger 1’s, a Jagdpanther and a Jagdpanzer IV L70. I’m brilliant at taking them apart but it takes time rebuilding them with as many upgraded parts as possible. A Cr...
