Welcome to the Forum Sapper :thumbup: :wave: :clap:
Might I assume you are or were a member of the Royal Engineers ?
As to the Tank Transporter, I have a virtually unchanged Bruder Low Loader coupled to a WPL B16 prime mover using one of Wills 5th wheels to convey a Medium Panzer 4 BUT if you have not seen it there is a very helpful U-Tube video explaining how to extend a Bruder Low Loader to carry Heavy Tanks such as the Leopard, Abrams and the Challenger,
I am sure you will have questions about all matters concerning RC Tanking,
We will do our best to answer them.

Hi jarndice. most definatly a Royal Engineer. I was driving Bridlayers and AVRE's in Germany in the 70's. I have also looked at WPL, also JJRC. For the tank a Heng Long Challenger 2. That will make a good TITAN, with a number 11 bridge. thanks for the tip about Bruder, that will save a lot of time. I will post pics as thing progess
