    Here is a 1/35 Dragon Kingtiger.I put some RC parts in side to make it movable
    it can go forward (stepless motor) backward left and right
    the turret can turn and the cannon can move up and down.
    I made the elastic suspension with steel wire.
    and add some PE parts and a metal track for it.
    Rebuilt the welding lines with A+B putty
    Rebuilt the texture of the ammor with tamiya grey putty.
    hope you like it
    And here are two videos of test run

    Beauty! It looks great in the 'ambush' scheme.
    As for Jan - you'll get to know him! He's our tame Swede, living in Scotland, and has recently developed a 'thing' about tanks, but only if they can have a '13' in their call sign numbers!
    He might be around later - after his nap and medication .......

    ylp, very nice work just on the model let alone the converting it to RC. I have 3 king tigers which I built (two with the different turrets and one Jagdtiger). Not that I would even know how to but I would never even consider converting it to RC. Now I have a nice 1/18 Tiger I..... Wish I had your skill

    Thank you guys. Greeting from East-Aisa.
    And speaical thanks to Mr.Airframes for the info about Jan.I'm sure I will get alone well with Mr.Jan the "Lucky 13"(^^).
    To Mr.Mikewint:I used nearly no custom made part, all of them are commercial ones available on the ebay or local e-shopping site. The only one is a central control unit made by a friend , cost only 15USD,available on the net as well.
    So just gooooo with your RC plan. Nothing difficult.

    ylp020, thanks, but that's what extremely talented people people usually say about the fantastic things they do while the rest of us just drool and wish. I'm happy just to get the model together and have it look half-way decent

    No need to sigh. I've seen your M48. It shows you a goood basic skills.
    You just need some courage to start weathering. Try it with WASH and Dry brush (or Dry shot?) first. Simple, easily correct and obvious effected.

    ylp020, there is another poster on this forum Wayne Little who does a fantastic job on him models. he has posted several PDFs on weathering techniques. he uses pastel chalks mostly. I'm giving some serious thought to trying his techniques on my nest model. If you go to "post your models" and "what is on the workbench" I have my 1/48 B-29 and my M1A1 abrams tank posted. I like the chalk idea because I can easily remove it if I don't like the result while washes would require a complete repaint.
    1.93m used to be tall but nowadays in the USA it's close to average height.
