Great looking tank destroyer! Nice, smooth track articulation too. My tracks seem to "bunch up" after going round the drive sprocket and before going under the first road wheel in a most unrealistic manner.

What great sound, too. I think I like the engine sounds best of all the features of these RC tanks. Sometimes I just turn on the tank and listen to the engine. What great popping as you back off the, uhn, throttle. :clap:

This week I got some more work done to the JP
Recoil/elevation connected to clark.

The barrel setup of this JP I feel is fragile and to flexy. Making the barrel bind a little , but I got it to work 'ok ish' .

You've given the JP some tasteful, believable weathering, Stian, and details worthy of copying :clap: The problem is, only an elite few would be able to copy your handiwork :D :thumbup:

Max Mekker,

Wow, that is one beautiful JP! Amazing weathering, not too much, nor too little! Perfect TOTM candidate!

Cheers,
Eric.

As a modeler I notice the little things and appreciate them most of all! I like the rim of primer around the open hatches! I like the subtle chipping, subtle wood grain on the tools and the weld lines, Nice Job 8) :thumbup:

Tamiya does a lot of work for you as they should for the price. If I used them as a starting block for my models I sell I would have to charge twice as much. It is a bit of work bringing the Henglong up to the standard of the Tamiya by switching out parts for Tamiya parts but makes the projects so much cheaper. I am slated to do 3 this summer and will post pics as time allows. Nice Job on this one!! :thumbup: :clap:
