A question for you all. Is this a new model or has it been around for a while?

Classy Hobby MC16001 PzKpfw. II Ausf. L Luchs 9th Panzer 1:16 Plastic Model Tank Kit
Classy Hobby MC16001 PzKpfw. II Ausf. L Luchs 9th Panzer 1:16 Plastic Model Tank Kit, £104.95

I've not seen one before. Another 1/16 RC conversion candidate?

It's been around since 2016. Other good donors are Takom 1/16 kits and Panda Hobby Pz.Kpfw.38(t).

Many thanks for your replies. I walk around with my eyes closed! Has anyone already tried s conversion then? It looks rather cramped so may not be easy.

Not mine. Those are examples of motorized static kits ;)

Mine Renault is still in progress:

Fantastic examples! Boy, they must be cramed out inside. Would love to see them in the flesh.

Hi guys,
I absolutely love the Lynx! With the track set up they remind me of a mini Tiger or Panther! Am I actually looking at a rapid firing 20mm auto cannon on that video, or is it just some nice doctoring of the video? 8O This sure could be my next tank. Then again; given my lack of time, patience, and skills, reality says probably not. Sure is cool though! :think:

Regards,
Eric.
