Panzer I – Start-up of the German Panzerwaffe

This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

As the title suggests, I would like to contrast with the numerous existing "bigger" models in the 1/16 RC scene, a smaller model - the Panzer I Ausf. B and in addition a conversion - the Command Tank I.

A short view into the designing of the two models…

…the Panzer I Ausf. B …

…and the Command Tank I.

The kit of Panzer I Ausf. B (following abbreviated to Pz. I) consists of several milled poly and aluminum plates in different thicknesses. It also includes 3D printer parts and other components, which will be shown in the following construction report. Of course, a detailed construction manual will also be available for this RC kit and will be available again from Christian Ludwig 8) .

3D parts for the Command Tank I (following abbreviated BW I):

To be continued…

Cheers,
Freddy

I´ve no idea yet; this will happen later, after building this prototype.

More than one mentioned getting a RC Pz.Kfw. II; it´s on the list - let´s see if this build works successfully, than I´ll decide ;)

Another spectacular design Freddy, and a refreshing change from the big cats and paper panzers that are so popular. I'm looking forward to seeing you work your magic and create another beautiful model!

Thanks a lot! :thumbup: I´ll do my best...

Starting the build report with the lower hull; it´s the same for Pz. I and BW I:

Parts for middle and aft bogie:

Image

Image

Image

The front bogie is different compared to the others…

Image

Image

Image

Idler parts…

Image

Image

The track gear need to be very small – nothing exists at the market (only in 1:35 available) that´s strong enough, therefore scratch build is needed, but will be available from Chris too:

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Wayne,

the price will be approx. 180 EUR for the Styrene and printed parts including drive sprockets made of Aluminum, approx. 80 EUR for the track gear and the tracks will be around 40 EUR. If you´ll add these numbers you will get up to 300 EUR - the same price as the SOL static model, but this will be RC 8)

Sure is a thing to behold..............we are all very lucky to have the visionary work of the likes of yourself and Mr Ismailov to turn out examples of the rare small tanks from various nations involved in the conflict.
I have a need for 2 of the roadwheels............are they available ?

(Early) small tanks are delightful to me; but making tiny RC tanks isn´t that easy - so big companys mostly making bigger 1/16 tanks…
No Problem; you can get two road wheels 8) . Send me a PM with your address.

Some progress to report :/ .

After the mounting the track covers…

Image

…the lower hull is almost done, missing only some small accessories.

Switching scene to the upper hull: BW I is using the same frame as the Pz. I (seen left in the following picture)…

Image

Image

Image

Image

The doors are moveable.

Image

Image

After the assembling and mounting of the muffler the upper hull of BW I is done.

Image

Image

Image

With adding some accessories at the lower hull, the BW I is finished 8) .

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Building the upper hull and turret of Pz. I will be next.

Nice kit :thumbup:
