Hello to you all,
as a child I built plastic kits of airplanes and tanks in 1/72 scale. For the last 8 years I have been building RC models 1/16 (Tamiya, Torro, Heng-Long, etc.), but also static models and figures also in 1/16 scale. I would very much like to draw inspiration for further work here.

Hello and welcome to the forum Mr ody :wave:

I bet quite a few of us started with the 1/72nd planes and tanks, as did I.

You sound like you already have a foothold within the dangers of the 1/16th tanks, both in their addictive and wallet draining appeal.

Enjoy the forum.

Thank you all, I am from the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, I have already found out that the 1/16 models are addictive. Sorry for my terrible English - Uncle Google helps ...

Welcome to the forum. You have nothing to worry about regarding your English. I hope we will be able to see some photos of your work. We love photos here.

OK. As an example, I will present my latest work, the Kingtiger Porsche. It was created by combining metal parts Torro (Henschel) and all-plastic Kingtiger Porsche Heng Long. The electronics is IBU2U.

Awesome video! That’s how I like to drive my tank, slow and creaking along very deliberately. Sounds as nice as it moves :clap:

Clearly, you're no beginner, Ody- that KT has been put together by a real craftsman :thumbup: It appears, that Pilsen produces more than great beer :D
