Mine is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Unfortunately got slap with duties (13% on the value) and brokerage fee (another $100). Still, however, cheaper than buying it in Canada.

FYI for wheels and suspension to replace the normal bushings with ball bearings you will need 44 8x5x2.5mm

Hi,

The Display model came out and i got it from Axel-Modellbau. As usual, the display model has a lot of the RC stuff for much cheaper. It has the metal lower hull, all the metal suspension, sprocket and tensioner parts, running tracks, the metal gun barrel. So, for those guys like me who will reuse a TK20 from an older tank and put an Heng Long gearbox, rotation and a Clark elevation/recoil with flash, this is a good deal at 277EU (VAT free), 36EU international shipping and lucky me, no custom at delivery...
