Hopefully I'm way off and it will be much less, but I won't be shocked if it goes as high as $500. Look at what they're getting for the Puma, even though it's a lot bigger.


Well, if that's true then that's one worry off my mind. I won't be able to afford it like ever, so no need to try and fit it into my life.

I've got new-old Torro M16 MGMC. For now It is only nice looking toy, but with some tweeks on suspension and installation of Elmod should be nice model :) Torro transmitter is terrible :haha:

Is the torro transmitter that bad?
How much is a Elmod board?

Forgebear is getting them in: I got one of the 27MHz ones just before the prices got silly.

Confirmed - if you want to have a battle ready halftrack it is the best way. Straight drop in for the original circuit board, you just need to stuff the battle circuit in the turret somehow and mount the IT sensor turret and emitter:

A 1/16 DUKW would have me jumping up and down with Joy! One can only wish at thus point!

At least, does it have wheels, tracks or propellers?

Bearing in mind that tanks & aeroplanes also have wheels...... Hovercraft have propellers but no wheels!
