This section is to 'show and tell' about any customizing or re-vamping you have done (or are doing) to a Heng Long tank.

Sitting in front of me is a freshly painted, but not weathered, Pershing. I made a cast texture on the turret, rusted the exhaust, basic HL stowage, chains and good old crazy Joe.

Since the Pershing is not represented here too well, I want to hear some opinions about what I should do.

Oh, and ideas for markings, too!

I guess you can upgrade the electronics.

If you want any markings, we could design something for it. Info here: https://radindustries.wordpress.com/201 ... /stencils/

I'm not really sure what you should do with your Pershing, but I can tell you what I'm doing with mine. First, I gave it black steel ball-bearing gearboxes, then I ordered metal road wheels with rubber tires, metal idler Wheels, and metal suspension arms. The tank already came with metal tracks and sprockets. I also intend to repaint it, but I'm still not sure what markings I will use. I'd kind of like to duplicate the Pershing that was seen in the famous battle with the panther in Berlin. The Pershing hasn't been a very big seller in 1/16 RC, but I really like it. It's a very easy tank to drive and very forgiving.
