    These are the first test cast. I like to run a few towards the end of the sculpt so I can make sure I have the gates, etc in the right place and make sure I didn't miss a rough spot or two.

    These are for the RC tanks market where too much detail is just waste, but for myself I'll turn them into more complete pieces paying some more attention to piping, insignia and other detail.

    Hi ausf

    Now they would paint up good like the way they are in the turret and you could always detail up of course .

    I have seen some amazing RC tanks

    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks Nap.

    Yeah, I think I'll add a bit of cupola, binoculars, some lapel insignia and off it as a bust. That way I can incorporate the hands a bit more with the cupola, as is it needs to fit a variety of models, so it has to be generic.

    I'll never understand the RC tank group, even though I'm one of them. They'll spend thousands on a tank, then drop Mr Gumby in the turret, which of course is the first thing your eye is attracted to.

    Here's a few of mine, fully RC with sound and lighting, IR battling.
