Welcome. I just had one of your SU-152 kits arrive here in TX. Already started cutting up the upper hull fitting the casemate.

Hello and welcome to the forum James :wave:

Have you got many RC tanks yourself?

If so, how about showing us some of your builds :thumbup:

We always like to see pictures of other people's models.

It would be interesting to have a little more background detail, James. :D
The Zik-20 elevation/traverse unit on Facebook looks pretty impressive- ( that's your handiwork isn't it?). Not everyone uses Facebook, however,
and hence the need to be a wee bit more expansive here. :D Welcome :thumbup:

Thanks guys, thought it was time i actually got on here and actually saw alot of the builds. Also feedback on my kits would be greatly appreciated. Yes the challenger and tusk 2 kits are my handiwork. Regards to materials most are fdm printed using various plastics but now i am going more down the route of resin printing the finer details. Megatron for instance has a few resin printed parts. Glad your su kit arrived quickly Tankme and looking forward to seeing the finished model. I will hopefully be posting other bits i have done but never posted on the facebook page.

Welcome to the Forum James :thumbup: :wave: :clap:

I don't know whether you would be allowed to download pictures of your wares on this Forum but it would help those of us residing in the stone age to get a handle on whats available.
Enjoy this place,
I do sometimes but then I am one of the more tolerant members :lolno:

I would agree the Zik-20 elevation/traverse unit on Facebook looks nice. I wouldn't mind if it was available for purchase since I have an SU-100 project that needs an elevation/traverse. :)

A universal Traverse/recoil/elevation unit based off the zik mechanics is deffo on the cards.

I shall hopefully upload some pictures of a few of my latest builds.
