And a T72 too! Those are some great news.

I dont want/need more tanks, but I am really willing to grab that schwimmwagen. Now we only need the price and date...

T72, new M16 (2.4GHz) and 1/6 FT-17 which shouldn't be much bigger than one of the modern 1/16 tanks?

Already got one - I picked one up cheap(ish) off Amazon when I found out the silly prices they were going for on Ebay!

I wonder if the 2.4 MFU in the new M16 will be a straight swap for the old one. :thumbup:
Depending on how good it is it could kill sales of the Elmod board.

What do you mean? I have a pair of the old M16's. Are you talking about if the new M16 board sells as a spare?

Why not? Everything else is up for sale. :lolno:
I have an Elmod board in my M16 and I like it very much but it was not cheap so if I were in the market for another M16 I would check out the price of a used one and the price of a new MFU.

Ahh, looks like I'll have to keep my eyes peeled and get one if they become available, then try it for a swap in one of my standard M16's. Thanks for that :thumbup:

Good morning,
I've an M16 and an M3 build slated for one of these years soon so this is very interesting news. The Swimming Kubelwagen looks neat and as I have one of those Hooben Elefant kits, I'll be having a close look at the lower hull from Torro\Taigen as well to see how it might match up. Wonderful new things coming around for us all.
regards,
Painless

I find the Schwimmwagen most exciting. Depending on the price, it could open a whole new builds chapter :thumbup:

The elefant looks like a built up hooben, the wheel covers and tracks look exactly the same.

I would be more interested in a 1/16 DUKW it would be good of itself but a bit of cut and shut would make a working Stalwart far more doable. :thumbup:

OK, so twice the length of a KT hull but with no overhanging fragile bits. Not much bigger if you include the gun! :D
