New WPL truck...err tracked vehicle...

Heng Long/WPL are now manufacturing 1/16 scale RC trucks, so it seemed sensible to create a forum area dedicated to the amazing things that members are doing with them. Post your builds, mods, and tips here.

Saw a vid of someone swimming one, but not sure what they did to prep it to swim.

After seeing a new swimming vid, they did say they needed to waterproof/modify it before doing it.

This could be a nice base for more commonly used GT-MU transport vehicle.

Just a shame the new WPL E1 (Gaz 71) is not 1/16 scale :(
Depending on measuring height width or length you can get 1/17, 1/24 or 1/26 doh!

After getting mine out of the box...it looks small compared to my other tanks. :(
